The Athletic reporter Roshane Thomas has recently discussed the transfer link between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur’s Danny Rose.
However, David Moyes’ outfit was reported to not be alone in their appreciation of the defender, with Aston Villa also stated as an admirer of the 30-year-old full-back.
While Le 10 Sport’s report insists that French giants Paris Saint-Germain do not want Rose, Italian side Genoa were also linked with possible interest.
So, in the latest episode of The Athletic’s U Irons podcast, Thomas discussed the transfer link between West Ham and the Tottenham defender.
He said: “Again, [Rose] doesn’t fit the type of player Moyes is trying to bring in. He wants to bring [in] young, exciting players.
“Danny Rose is the same age as Aaron Cresswell and they’re both on the decline, so it makes no sense whatsoever [for] West Ham [to] want to try and sign him.
“You’re better off looking at getting a younger player or someone like a [Mykola] Matviyenko, the Shakhtar Donetsk defender who can play centre-half and left-back. So, he’ll be naturally perfect for the system.
As can be seen in what the journalist had to say, he believes that West Ham should not make a move to sign Rose from Spurs.
Would you be happy if West Ham signed Danny Rose from Spurs?
No, he's not good enough
Yes, he's a solid player
The same average rating for West Ham in the top flight last season would have made him the Irons’ ninth-worst performer.
So, it seems as though the Hammers may be better off staying well clear of a move to sign Rose from Jose Mourinho’s outfit.
