Everton are now reportedly open to letting Ben Godfrey depart this month, with Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, Luton, and Leeds expressing interest in the £20 million-rated centre-half, per HITC.
Amid ongoing speculation about the former Norwich City captain’s future, Everton are said to be willing to consider offers for Ben Godfrey as the January transfer window approaches its conclusion.
Numerous clubs in both the Premier League and Championship have expressed interest in Ben Godfrey, including Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, and Luton Town.
Leeds are also keen on the player, although it remains uncertain whether Godfrey would consider a move to the Championship with several Premier League clubs vying for his signature. The connection with Daniel Farke, who is in the Elland Road dugout, could potentially boost Leeds’ chances in securing the player.
Godfrey made his name in England’s top-flight under Daniel Farke at Carrow Road. The connection with Farke, who was his manager during that period, adds a notable aspect to the potential interest from Leeds in acquiring Godfrey.
The 26-year-old versatile defender is one of many names being linked to Sheffield United this past week as the Blades appear to be focused on improving their defence.
Names such as Chris Mepham, Mason Holgate and Joe Worrall have been mentioned. Out of these names Godfrey clearly stands out as the best option, but whether United can get him is another question.
