Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is open to selling Danny Rose to West Ham, according to well-informed insiders Claret and Hugh.
Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 30-year-old Spurs ace to the London Stadium from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer, according to a report from Le 10 Sport.
And Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho could be willing to sell Rose for just £5 million (Corriere dello Sport).
With West Ham’s problems in the left-back department, Danny Rose would be a very useful addition for us.
The problem is that Spurs have never liked doing business with the Hammers.
Levy ready to deal with rivals?
But Claret and Hugh surprisingly suggest that Tottenham supremo Daniel Levy could be open to selling the England international to West Ham, such is his desperation to get rid of the former Leeds man.
The 30-year-old, who earns £60k-a-week at Spurs (Spotrac), has enjoyed a great Premier League career.
In 194 top flight appearances, Rose has racked up 445 tackles with a 78% success rate, 310 interceptions, 431 clearances and 39 blocked shots (premierleague.com).
And for just £5 million, he would be a great signing for us, regardless of what some Hammers fans would have you believe.
There are questions about Rose’s attitude. But with the Telegraph claiming that the left-back is desperate to force his way back into the England squad, he will surely be hungry to impress this season.
This one seems like a no-brainer. If Levy is truly willing to do business with us, there is no reason why Moyes shouldn’t sign the Spurs ace this summer.
