Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Everton defender Ben Godfrey.
The 25-year-old defender is highly rated in English football and he could prove to be a useful acquisition for the North London club.
A report from TeamTalk claims that Newcastle United could compete with Tottenham for Godfrey as well. Tottenham need to sign a central defender in January, especially after the injury blow to Micky van de Ven. Godfrey could prove to be a quality alternative.
The 25-year-old has struggled for regular game time at the Merseyside club and the opportunity to join a big club like Tottenham will be an attractive proposition for him.
The North London outfit have started the season well and they will look to secure Champions League qualification. They will be an attractive destination for most players and it remains to be seen whether they can secure the 25-year-old’s services.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United need to bring in defensive reinforcements as well, and they have an ambitious project at their disposal. If they can promise him regular gametime, Godfrey could be attracted to the idea of playing for them.
The Magpies have more financial resources compared to Tottenham as well. It remains to be seen how the situation develops.
Godfrey was regarded as one of the finest young defensive talents in the country before he joined Everton and the likes of Tottenham and Newcastle could certainly help him get back to his best and fulfil his tremendous potential.
