Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino warned a few months ago that the club might need to undergo a painful rebuild this summer (Evening Standard).

Reports have indicated that Tottenham are open to letting several of their players leave.

Now, a report in The Guardian has claimed that the Tottenham manager will let three of Tottenham’s regular starters last season leave the club – Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen.

The report claims that the Argentine expects Eriksen to join Real Madrid and has identified potential replacements for the Dane. It also suggests that Pochettino will let both Trippier and Rose leave should the club receive sufficient bids.

The report goes on to add that Tottenham offered Roma both Rose and Trippier but the Serie A club were instead keen on Toby Alderweireld due to their problems in central defence. There have even been suggestions this summer that Roma could offer Spurs target Nicolò Zaniolo in a deal for the Belgian defender (Daily Mail).

Spurs Web Opinion

We believe Trippier needs a fresh start and a move to the Serie A will be perfect for him given his style of play. However, we believe the club should hang on to Danny Rose for at least a couple of more seasons as the 28-year-old was back to his best at the back end of last season.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Zaniolo is a quality player and we’d do well to sign him but personally I’m hoping we sign:
    Nubir (Keeper)
    Max Aaron’s or Atal (Nice)
    Ajar (Celtic) (if Toby goes)
    Ceballos (loan with view to buy)

    I’m not too keen on Lo Celso personally and would prefer Van Der Beek if we after that kind of midfielder if Eriksen goes.

    I’d sell go:
    & Eriksen if he doesn’t sign a new deal by the end of next week.

    Other than that as I don’t think we’ll sign Ake, I’d like to see Davies moved to LCB as potential long-term cover for Jan.
    Rose I’d keep as he will be a brilliant mentor to Sessegon initially

  2. Letting Danny Rose go would be a massive mistake, Sessegnon shows promise but won’t be at Rose’s level for at least 5 years, if ever. I can understand building for the future, but we’ve just been in a champions league final and we must look to make our stamp on the present.

  3. Id call that bull. I rate Rose as one of the five best leftbacks in the world, he is definately not a player who will leave
