On the latest episode of the View from The Lane podcast for The Athletic, Jack Pitt-Brooke, James Maw and Charlie Eccleshare have been reflecting on Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 defeat against Everton last weekend and discussing the last three episodes of the ‘All or Nothing’ documentary.
One topic of discussion on the recent episode, which was titled ‘Opening Day Defeat – The Reaction‘ was the latest transfer rumours surrounding Danny Rose.
It was suggested earlier this month that Serie A side Genoa are keen to sign the left-back in the current transfer window, with his time at Spurs seemingly set to come to an end after he wasn’t given a squad number for the 2020/21 campaign.
Here’s what Eccleshare had to say about Rose and his likely departure from Spurs on the podcast:
“He’s obviously going to go, the question is where. Genoa is the club that have been most heavily linked. My understanding at the moment is that they are not willing to pay what he wants.
“I expect there will have to be a degree of compromise on Rose’s part. It is quite sad, just think of that clip in ‘All or Nothing’ where he’s asking Daniel Levy about whether Milan are keen and he’s told that they’re not.
“Genoa probably wasn’t his first choice.
“I heard as well that Newcastle, had that takeover gone through, they would have been willing to pay him what he wanted, but obviously it didn’t, and so the picture changed.
“It seems like Genoa is the most likely destination, but it does require them to stump up the cash, so we will have to wait and see.”
From what Eccleshare suggests, Genoa is the most likely destination for Rose in the current transfer window, although I Rossoblu may have to up their offer if they want to sign the 30-year-old.
Do you think Rose will join Genoa?
Rose’s disappointing loan spell at Newcastle United last season; where he averaged a poor 6.47/10 rating across 11 appearances in the Premier League (per WhoScored), certainly suggests that he is no longer good enough for Jose Mourinho’s squad, so perhaps it is best for all parties if he moves on.
