Tottenham Hotspur and Mauricio Pochettino may have some decisions to make regarding the left-back position this summer.

Spurs currently have Danny Rose and Ben Davies in this role, a duo they have had on their books for some time now, with Kyle Walker-Peters also able to cover.

However, reports have emerged that Spurs may sell 29-year-old Danny Rose this summer to fund a move for Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon (talkSPORT).

Sessegnon has been known to play in both the left-back and left-wing positions, and it is unknown where Poch would look to play him. However, if Rose is sold and Sessegnon purchased, everything would point towards left-back.

Despite Rose being first choice for the last few months under Pochettino, and the England man getting back to his best, it looks as if he could be first in line for the chopping block.

Ban Davies only made seven starts in 2019 in the Prem for Spurs, but could be more inclined to play a back-up role, and can also cover at centre-back. Pochettino is also said to ‘adore’ the Welshman, implying that he is going nowhere (Football London).

Spurs Web Opinion:

I don’t think either Rose or Davies should be sold this summer, whether Sessegnon comes in or not. This is mainly down to the fact that Sessegnon is still a teenager and is not ready to be a starting left-back. However, I also believe that the Fulham youngster will eventually become an out-and-out left winger, rather than a defender.
