Now that Spurs have a confirmed head coach heading into the new season, the transfer rumours are flying in and one area the press are concentrating on is the left side of defence. Danny Rose was first choice for the whole of 2013-14 but will he start the new campaign under Mauricio Pochettino?
Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand could be set to leave Stamford Bridge, according to the Mirror and at 24, the player is at a point where he needs regular first team football. It’s thought that Bertrand is being lined up by Southampton as a potential replacement for Luke Shaw but if Pochettino decides that Rose needs replacing, the Chelsea man could be his top target.
Elsewhere, the unfamiliar name of Ben Davies began to emerge yesterday. At 21, the Welshman is first choice at Swansea and to date, he has made ten appearances for Wales at full international level.
Davies has a contract until 2017 and has apparently been watched by Atletico Madrid so could conceivably be more expensive than Bertrand. Will Spurs move for either man and does Danny Rose really need replacing on the left side of the back four?
