Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose has conceded his future at club level is unclear, following reports linking the England international with a summer switch to Everton.
It was suggested last week that the Toffees want the Doncaster-born 28-year-old, should Spurs make an approach for our Player of the Year Lucas Digne, who, according to The Mirror, the board value at double the £18million we paid FC Barcelona for him last summer.
Mauricio Pochettino had wanted to sign Digne from the Catalan giants himself in 2018, but was hamstrung by financial restrictions at the time, which have since been eased with his side reaching the Champions League Final.
Tottenham also have a policy for cashing in on players once they reach a certain age, which Rose feels could result in his exit from North London being confirmed this summer.
“I’m looking forward to a break. If I’m back at Tottenham next season, great, if I’m not – great. I’ll just have to wait and see.
“It’s not about regular first-team football. I know my age, and I know how the club’s run in terms of if you get to a certain age they might look to ship you on.
“It has been no secret that my name has been mentioned quite a few times in terms of players moving on, and I’ll be just sitting tight over the next few weeks and just seeing what happens. Either way, I’m prepared for whatever happens.”
Rose’s claims will not only put Director of Football Marcel Brands on alert, but also chiefs at Manchester United and Man City who have likewise been linked with the England international.
Our interest stems on Tottenham making a move for Digne though, which cannot be written in stone yet as Spurs are interested in Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, whom the Daily Mail understand is currently the focus of ongoing discussions regarding a £25million move.
