Newcastle and Tottenham among clubs keen on Everton defender Ben Godfrey

Ben Godfrey, the skilled defender currently gracing the ranks of Everton, has become the subject of contemplation for potential acquisitions by both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United. Everton successfully acquired Godfrey from Norwich City during the summer of 2020, sealing the deal with a significant transfer fee of 27.5 million euros.

Since his integration into the Goodison Park squad, Godfrey has been a prominent figure, featuring in 79 matches for Everton. Despite his primary role as a defensive stalwart, the 24-year-old has showcased versatility by contributing offensively, delivering three crucial assists during his tenure.

However, the winds of change are sweeping through Godfrey’s career as he witnesses a descent down the pecking order in the current season. Everton’s manager, Sean Dyche, has displayed a preference for alternative options in the central defense, favoring James Tarkowski, Michael Keane, and Jarrad Branthwaite over Godfrey.

Tottenham Hotspur FC

The assessment places Godfrey’s current market value at an estimated 13 million euros. This valuation underscores his standing in the fiercely competitive football market, attracting interest from various Premier League clubs eager to fortify their defensive lines.

In addition to the interest from Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United, other contenders for Godfrey’s signature include Bournemouth, Burnley, and Crystal Palace.
