Tottenham Hotspur full-back Danny Rose is attracting attention from six Premier League clubs ahead of the final stages of the January transfer window, according to a report from Sky Sports.
Rose’s future at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium appears to have had a question mark hanging over it for some time.
Sky Sports suggests that he is out of contract at the end of next season. And he has struggled for game-time since Jose Mourinho came in as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor.
Sky Sports reports that Spurs would prefer to sell the 29-year-old this month. And it appears that there is no shortage of admirers as the deadline begins to emerge on the horizon.
According to the report, six top flight rivals all want Rose this month. It is speculated that Newcastle and Watford are amongst those in the running with both keen on landing a full-back.
TBR View – Would January sale be best for all parties?
With Rose seemingly well down the Spurs pecking order, it would appear that a move could be best for all concerned.
Tottenham will be able to sell a player 18 months before his contract expires. Rose may secure a move to a side who can offer him more game-time. And the buying club will land a player who, at one time, was one of the best left-backs in Europe.
It is not the first time that Rose appears to have been linked with a move away however.
So it will be interesting to see if anything does come of the interest in him this time around.
With six clubs reportedly in the running, it would perhaps be a surprise if a bid was not made before the deadline passes.
