Tottenham are keen on raiding Norwich City for two of their prized assets this summer. Defenders Max Aarons and  Ben Godfrey have caught Jose Mourinho’s attention with the duo set to cost about £80 million. (h/t Express)

Spurs have been consistently linked with a move fo Aarons. Mourinho is keen on bringing the youngster to North London in a deal worth £30 million this summer.

It now appears that Tottenham have also been keeping tabs on Aarons’ 22-year old teammate Ben Godfrey.

Primarily a center-back who can also play in defensive midfield, Godfrey was watched by the club a number of times this season.

The 22-year-old is valued by the Canaries at £50 million. The report goes on to state that money will be made available for Mourinho as he rebuilds Spurs from the back.

Signed from York City in 2016, Godfrey has gone on to make 61 appearances for Norwich, 18 of which came in the Premier League this season. (h/t Whoscored) . York City are also entitled to a 10 percent stake in the youngster’s sell-on fee.

North London rivals Arsenal are also interested in the 22-year-old.

Foundations being laid!

Tottenham have had a very disappointing season defensively. The club is the joint bottom for the least number of clean sheets in the Premier League this season.

The regression of Jan Vertonghen hasn’t helped given the poor form of Davinson Sanchez and the issues surrounding  Danny Rose. Ben Davies has been injured whereas Serge Aurier is hot-headed at times. The emergence of Japhet Tangana is a shining beacon of hope in a largely disappointing defense.

With Spurs looking to rebuild a team that came close to continental glory, Mourinho is best served in laying the foundations for the new decade. The Portuguese’s teams are known to be defensively solid and it makes sense for him to begin with what he does best.

As Liverpool has demonstrated over the last two seasons, a solid defense could turn a good team into a great one and Spurs surely seem to have gotten that memo.

Godfrey has the dubious distinction to be the first player in the English Premier League to be sent off by following the referee’s consultation of the pitchside video screen.
