PSG leading race to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham

Rose to blossom in Ligue 1?

Paris Saint-Germain are currently leading the race to sign Tottenham left-back Danny Rose. The England international is not thought to be in manager Mauricio Pochettino's plans next season, and has been left out of the club's pre-season tour of Singapore, as he "explores prospective opportunities with other clubs".

Sky Sports News are reporting that Spurs are looking to recoup £20m for the 29-year-old, who joined from Leeds United for £1m in 2007. Bundesliga outfit Schalke are also among the list of potential candidates, as are Everton, Juventus and former club Leeds.

Rose fell out of favour at Spurs during the 2017-18 campaign and struggled to nail down a starting spot in Mauricio Pochettino's starting-eleven at the beginning of this season, with Wales international Ben Davies often preferred in the left-back berth.

Danny Rose England
The England international is set to leave Tottenham this summer.

He did however feature more throughout the second-half of last season, and put in some notably solid performances for Spurs during their impressive run in the Champions League - where they were beaten by Liverpool in the final - which led to many fans believing that he would be Pochettino's main left-back this term.

Now, that does not seem to be the case, with it looking likely that Spurs will make a move for Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon before the transfer window closes in August if Rose does depart the club.

Having made almost 200 appearances for the north Londoners during the previous twelve years, Rose is a vastly experienced top-flight defender who would be of huge benefit to any club competing outside of the Premier League's top-six.

If Rose was to make the switch abroad this summer, though, he would be the second English full-back to depart Tottenham for a foreign team in a matter of weeks, following Kieran Trippier's £21m move to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
