Report: PSG lead Juventus in race to sign Tottenham defender Danny Rose

The left-back is almost certain to leave the club this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain have moved ahead of Juventus in the race to land Tottenham defender Danny Rose, according to The Sun.

The England left-back looks certain to leave Spurs this summer and the Parisians are keen to tie up a £20 million deal.

Rose has not travelled with Tottenham on their pre-season tour to Asia as he looks to get hooked up with a move elsewhere.

In departing, Rose would end a 12-year association with the North London-based club.

In 198 appearances for Tottenham, he has 10 goals and 27 assists.

Maurizio Sarri had been keen to take Rose to Turin but it would now appear that PSG have moved ahead in the queue.

Rose played 26 games last season and the fact he was a first-team regular perhaps makes his departure a surprising one.

The French champions have already raided the Premier League to sign Ander Herrera from Manchester United this summer.

Tottenham could have a replacement lined-up for Rose. The Telegraph report that a deal for Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon is close.

 

TBR Verdict

Joining PSG would represent a decent move for Rose.

It would appear that Mauricio Pochettino has deemed him surplus to requirements at Tottenham and a move makes sense.

The left-back is on £60k-a-week at Spurs and that is probably more than what the club will initially pay Sessegnon when he arrives.

After 12 years at the club, it is probably time for Rose to move on.

It is perhaps interesting that Tottenham are willing to let him move to one of their Champions League rivals.

Spurs reached the final last season and they will have aspirations of competing once again.

Kieran Trippier has already joined Atletico Madrid and it would seem Spurs favour their players joining teams on the continent, rather than in the Premier League.

Rose has the pace to burn and it will be interesting to see how he will get on in another European top-flight.
