This week it was reported that Juventus star Kwadwo Asamoah had decided his time in Turin had run its course.
Calcio Mercato reported that the Ghanaian had decided to leave the club this summer for a new challenge.
With his contract expiring there was, as expected, plenty of interest in signing the talented utility player.
The report claimed Inter Milan has already offered him a deal whilst Everton were in talks over a potential offer.
It was also reported that Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur are keen on the player.
Spurs’ apparent interest certainly makes sense. Asamoah is an exceptional footballer who can play in a number of positions.
The fact they can also sign him for free makes it a bargain deal for the club.
It also perhaps suggests that Tottenham are planning for life after Danny Rose.
The future of the England international has been up for debate for much of the season.
Since he admitted in an interview with The Sun last summer that he was not happy with his wages at Spurs, his future at the club has been in doubt.
Since then, the landscape has changed for Rose. Ben Davies, the Welshman often ridiculed as his second fiddle, has blossomed.
Now, he is the preferred option in the left-back or left wing-back role at Tottenham.
Rose meanwhile has struggled to stay fit after a knee injury and this summer will again be linked with moves away from the club.
If Tottenham are looking at Asamoah it could be they are eyeing up the perfect replacement for Rose.
Back in December, the Mirror suggested Tottenham would take £50 million for Rose.
The long-term replacement target is clearly Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon but, given his young age, bringing in the experienced Asamoah for free this summer makes sense.
Spurs could then swoop for Sessegnon at a later date, or even sign him and loan him back to Fulham next term.
Getting £50 million for Rose and bringing in Asamoah for free would be a masterstroke in the transfer market from Tottenham Hotspur.
If the money earned from selling Rose then buys Sessegnon? Then Tottenham fans will have little to complain about regarding a Rose exit.
