Tottenham ‘considering’ second bid for £30m centre-back

Tottenham are “considering” another bid for Swansea centre-back Alfie Mawson, according to a report.

The Telegraph claims Mauricio Pochettino has already lodged one offer for the England Under-21 defender, which was turned down by the Swans.

Pochettino is now believed to be pondering a second bid with SWansea understood to rate the 23-year-old in the £30million bracket – just a year after signing him from Barnsley for £5million.

The report claims Spurs could try to offer Josh Onomah on loan to the Welsh club to offset the fee as Pochettino looks to offload Kevin Wimmer.

The South Wales Post however claims “sources at Swansea insist they have not received any bids nor serious interest in Mawson”.

The Daily Mirror this week suggested Spurs want either Mawson or Middlesbrough centre-back Ben Gibson to replace Wimmer.

Daniel Levy is keen to see Winner, 24, sold first and despite playing only eight matches last season, Spurs are still demanding £20million for the centre-back.

Southampton are reported to be interested in Wimmer, but are not prepared to meet Levy’s inflated asking price, while several clubs in the Bundesliga are also tracking the player who signed in 2015 for £5million.
