Friday night review : Rodon & Grimes Are Premier League Targets
Friday, 9th Oct 2020 17:36 by Keith Haynes
Daniel Levy continues to believe he holds the cards with regards to Joe Rodon becoming a Spurs player before next Friday at 5pm. Levy genuinely believes Swansea will buckle once the fee goes above 12 million. Matt Grimes is also on West Hams radar in a double South Wales swoop which includes Sean Morrison at Cardiff City. Both are captains of their clubs.
However Swans fans shouldn't be too concerned at this point because Watford's Craig Dawson and Bournemouth's Steve Cook are also believed to be on the radar at the London Stadium. Grimes has recently been the subject of interest from Watford in this window, although a concrete approach has not yet materialised, and there's little sign of that changing soon. There has to be a caveat to that as Watford would indeed continue their interest in Grimes if they lose Dawson to West Ham. Its a double edged sword and Steve Cooper will be extremely concerned come the avalanche of business that will take place before the deadline, he needs players in and not players out.
The big question now is do Rodon and Grimes believe that they can take Swansea City premier league bound this season ? And if that's the case are the so called owners of the club in the USA that confident that can happen ? Immediate financial restitution for both Grimes and Rodon would bring in over 20 million pounds, however what use is that cash if they don't see the Premier League 200 million at the end of this season. Lets be honest if the swans fail to get promoted both players wont have lost their price tag come next May. To swans fans its a no brainer, the test for those that make the decisions is can they wait to cash in over the next 6 months ? Give it a go, what have our part owners got to lose ? In fact the currency of both players would no doubt increase.
Swansea City have stuck by Matt Grimes more than most over the time he has been with Swansea City, maybe some would expect some commitment in return, because lets be honest at one point, before his pretty poor loan spell at Leeds, he was borderline leaving the club. Since then he has matured and become a valuable asset on the pitch and off it as well as club captain.
The next week at Swansea City will determine the season, clever thought as to what can be lost if the initial coin is chased is key. Come next Friday evening all swans fans will know, and Julian Winter will have either become persona non grata or someone the clubs supporters see as someone with foresight and initiative when it comes to competent management of the next 6 months.
