Swansea City are reportedly interested in signing Tom Carroll from Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

Swansea City are interested in signing Tom Carroll from Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

Carroll, who has been on the books of Tottenham his entire professional career so far, had a loan spell at Swansea during the 2014-15 season.

It has been reported that the Welsh outfit, who are struggling for survival in the Premier League at the moment, are ready to make a £10 million bid for the Englishman.

“Swansea supremo Huw Jenkins will make money available in January and has an eye on young talent whose value can rise,” states the report in The Sun.

Carroll is a good and promising midfielder, but the 24-year-old is struggling for playing time at Spurs at the moment.

The former England Under-21 international has been able to play just once in the Premier League so far this season.

During the 2015-16 campaign, the midfielder scored one goal and created nine chances in 19 league matches.

It seems that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino does not consider Carroll a key part of his plan.

Carroll is largely a squad player at White Hart Lane at the moment, and he could remain so for the foreseeable future.

While Spurs are a bigger and more ambitious club than Swansea are, in order to progress and develop, the midfielder should probably join the Welsh outfit if he thinks that he would have a better chance of playing regular first-team football at the Liberty Stadium.
