According to reports in The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a surprise £15m move for Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson this summer.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring in a new centre-back before the start of next season as he looks to provide cover for Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, with the latter stalling on signing a new contract.
Mawson was certainly one of Swansea’s stand-out performers as they narrowly escaped relegation from the Premier League last term, scoring four goals in 27 top flight appearances for the Welsh side, while he will have impressed many with his ability on the ball.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some believe that he is a good player and could be a good signing, others say he has an error in him and isn’t good enough for Spurs.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
No, error prone, not good enough.

I cannot see this, he's a decent CB but I see Chris Smalling a better buy for us

It's the Sun, of course, but I wouldn't mind this. He played well, for Clement, and scored a couple of big goals. Poch could work with him.
