Tottenham set to beat Liverpool in transfer tussle

Tottenham are set to beat Liverpool to the signature of Swansea left-back Ben Davies, according to reports from The Mirror.

The Wales international has been on the radars of both clubs in recent weeks, but now it appears that Spurs are likely to get a deal over the line ahead of their Merseyside rivals.

A fee of £8m is set to be agreed between the two clubs, which will then allow to the 21-year-old to settle terms with the north Londoners.

Davies was thought to be edging towards a switch to Anfield to join up with former Swans chief Brendan Rodgers, yet the youngster is understood to have backtracked.

Concerns over his first-team role, with the Reds still chasing Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno, is thought to be the major contributor to the decision, with a starting berth virtually guaranteed at White Hart Lane.

Gareth Bale’s successes with the Lilywhites could also be a factor, with Davies’ international colleague having joined Spurs earlier in his career as a promising left-sided defender.

Liverpool look set to push a move for Moreno, but could elect to pursue Chelsea outcast Ryan Bertrand instead.
