The club are considering a £40m bid for Swansea City defender Alfie Mawson, according to the Daily Express.

The reporter writing on the story also had a similar “exclusive” relating to a £100m PSG offer for Christian Eriksen, so take this report with a pinch of salt.

Toby Alderweireld is likely to leave the club in the summer, with the Belgian international’s contract situation still unresolved, so it seems likely that we will move for another centre back.

However, whether the Swans centre-half would prove value for money, it is debatable. He is only 24 years of age so he has the potential to improve,  but he has been part of a struggling defence that has conceded 52 goals this campaign.

The former England Under 21 international has started all 35 Premier League games this season, with his team conceding on average 1.5 goals every game.

With Manchester United also reportedly tracking him, the player is certainly rated by some, but the £40m does seem pretty steep.
