Norwich City to demand £50m for Tottenham target Ben Godfrey

According to a report from Sky Sports, Norwich City will demand up to £50m for defender Ben Godfrey who has emerged as a target for Tottenham, among other clubs.

The 22-year-old Godfrey is a product of the York City youth academy. He joined Norwich City in January 2016. After a season-long loan spell at Shrewsbury Town in 2017/18, the youngster became an integral member of the first-team at Carrow Road.

Ben Godfrey has impressed for Norwich

Godfrey played a key role in helping the Canaries earn promotion to the Premier League last season. While Norwich have struggled in the top flight, the 22-year-old has stood out as one of their most impressive performers this term.

Godfrey is contracted with Norwich till the summer of 2023, with the club having the option of extending it by another year. However, given the interest in him, the club understand that they might be forced to sell, especially if relegation is confirmed. (h/t Sky Sports)

And the Canaries have decided to slap a £50m valuation on the 22-year-old, as they believe he will become a regular for the England national team in the near future. (h/t Sky Sports)

This is likely to become an issue for Tottenham, given the current financial situation. It is no secret that a new centre-back is the need of the hour for the club. However, shelling out that much on a single player might not be feasible, given that there are several other positions that need to be strengthened.

Apart from Tottenham, the likes of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are also keen on Godfrey. However, as per the report, they too will be unwilling to match Norwich’s asking price for the defender.

So, it is very much likely that the Canaries will reduce their asking price. It will be interesting to see if the club pounces on the chance to sign the Englishman.
