ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham have been offered the chance to sign Tottenham left-back Danny Rose this summer.
We absolutely must sign a new left-back before next months transfer deadline. Hammers boss David Moyes has said as much himself.
And Rose appears to be one of several options for West Ham.
Le 10 Sport claimed last week that the Hammers want to bring the 30-year-old to east London from Spurs.
And Claret and Hugh then backed that up by suggesting that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to break the habit of a lifetime and do business with West Ham.
The Telegraph recently claimed that Jose Mourinho is willing to let the 29-capped England international leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
Rumours seem to have legs…
This story seems to have some real credence. ExWHUemployee has now claimed that Rose has in fact been offered to the Hammers, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast last night (Wednesday September 23rd):
“Danny Rose has been offered to us. But they’re not sure whether they want to go ahead with that. He didn’t do great at Newcastle, but we should still take a gamble on him because he is better than the left-back options we currently have.”
The Tottenham ace might actually be a very good option for us. That’s despite many West Ham fans thinking that Rose is past it and that we should avoid him at all costs
Many fans have questioned his desire and hunger to play at the highest level. And his attitude has also been highlighted as a potential red flag.
But he will surely be looking to prove himself this season, given the fact that he is desperate to force his way back into the England squad (The Telegraph).
This is perhaps Rose’s last chance to force his way into the England setup ahead of a major tournament.
And if we could pick him up for the £5 million fee that has been quoted (Corriere dello Sport), it will surely be a no-brainer.
