Fabio Paratici slaps £30m valuation on Tottenham defender Ben Davies
Davies has been with Tottenham for close to seven years now, having arrived from Swansea City in the summer of 2014. To date, the 28-year-old Wales international has racked up 228 appearances for the north London giants, bagging five goals and setting up 21 more. (h/t Transfermarkt)
While he hasn’t necessarily been the first-choice at left-back at Tottenham all through his career, Davies has been a dependable player for each of the manager that he has played under, be it Mauricio Pochettino or Jose Mourinho.
However, there had been speculations over his future at Tottenham of late, with Serie A outfit seemingly showing an interest in securing his services this summer. (h/t Football.london)
Venerato, speaking to Radio Kiss Kiss (h/t Football.London), has dismissed such possibilities, insisting that the only way Paratici wants to keep him at the club. However, he would be willing to part ways with the 28-year-old was if any club were willing to pay £30m to sign him up.
“Ben Davies in Italy? Paratici told me that Tottenham want to keep him, but if he leaves, they would only consider offers over 30 million.”
As iterated earlier, Davies has been a reliable member of the Tottenham unit, who is capable of doing the job as a left-back or as a left-sided centre-back much like he does with the Welsh national team, who have made it to the Round of 16 at the UEFA Euro 2020.

An important summer awaits Paratici as he embarks on a new journey in his career as the managing director of football at Tottenham. He has an impressive track record when it comes to transfer dealings with his former club, Juventus. Whether he can achieve similar success in north London remains to be seen.
As for Davies, it seems like he will not be going anywhere this summer.
