Is Daniel Levy about to land Swans the sucker punch? 2

Posted on August 05, 2014 by Guest Writer

It was weeks ago now that Tottenham made their interest in Ben Davies known to Swansea but negotiations seemed to go on forever until he was finally landed less than 2 weeks ago. Apparently the delay centred around the valuation placed upon the 21 yr old by Swansea, Tottenham wanted him but felt that the price tag placed upon him of some £12m was off the mark and so the work began. The media was used to try to manipulate the situation, they declared interest in the player from Liverpool and even mentioned Arsenal on more than one occasion.

Their Chairman Huw Jenkins has obviously done really well in establishing Swansea as a relevant Premier League club and  so the press even suggested that our own Chairman Daniel Levy had finally met his match,

Tottenham pursuit of Bony mirrors pursuit of Benteke. 1

A couple of weeks ago when interviewd at the World Cup the Swansea player Wilfried Bony announced that he would consider leaving his current club for a top six team if the opportunity presented itself. That seemed to open the door for clubs such as Everton and Tottenham to toy with the idea of didding for the big striker as significantly his words did not mention the need for Champions League football as do most other potential transfer targets. Everton need a replacement for the on loan Lukaku who has been priced out of a move to both clubs due to a ridiculously high fee put on his head by Chelsea who don’t consider him good enough for them.
General opinion was that a player purchased for £12m a year ago and performing reasonably well in the premiership would attract a decent profit of perhaps as much as £8m at most. Now that Tottenham have apparently shown their hand and enquired about the player his price is beginning to soar and has been set at more than double the amount paid a year ago.
Prices now being quoted for decent players is becoming ridiculous, £25m or more for Bony who had no better than a good first season with fourteen goals to his name is just not on and the sum quoted by many as Tottenham’s valuation of £17m is nearer the mak give or take a million.
