Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly ready to allow Danny Rose to leave the club this summer with Mauricio Pochettino keen to bring in Ryan Sessegnon.

The Sun claim that the England international’s £80,000-a-week wages at Spurs are proving to be an issue for potential suitors.

The left-back, who made 37 appearances and started in the Champions League final loss to Liverpool has previously admitted that he does not know if he will still be at Tottenham next season (Sky Sports).

Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in English football and is expected to leave Craven Cottage in the summer following their return to the Championship.

The report suggests that Spurs are looking for around £35million to part company with Rose who is the club’s longest-serving player since joining from Leeds United in July 2007 and will use the money to bring Sessegnon to North London instead.

Opinion

While Sessegnon would be a fantastic signing it would be a huge blow to lose Danny Rose.  There is more than enough room for both players at the club given Sessegnon’s adaptability to operate anywhere on the left-hand side.

  1. Spurs would be incredibly weaker on the left side without Danny Rose. With his recurring depressive state of mind, who can blame him for wondering out loud about his future? It would be stupid, discriminatory, and self-defeating of Spurs to hold Rose’s opinions against him. Anyway, more to the point, what happened to the plan of having Sessegnon as an addition at left wing? From what I’ve seen of him he cannot replace Rose on the left but he could turn into a welcome addition, potentially.
