An Ideal Danny Rose Replacement? Tottenham Are Already On The Lookout To Sign £25m Former Barcelona Ace

Published

on

Tottenham face stiff competition in signing Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo as they prepare a contingency plan in case they have to sell Danny Rose.

TalkSport reports that we are interested in the 22-year-old left-back, who is a former Barcelona academy graduate, and will have to battle against Napoli if we are to get the highly rated Spaniard. Grimaldo has been playing for the Portuguese giants this season but he is open to moving away in January with Spurs and Napoli looking at their left-back issues.

While Napoli’s number one left-back Faouzi Ghoulam is out for a long time with a serious knee injury, we have a different issue with Rose looking at greener pastures.

The report suggests that we could sign the defender for £25m, which would be a bargain in this day and age of football. However, we just have not seen enough of Grimaldo to confirm if he can be a success at Spurs.

An Attacking Full-back But Should We Get Him In January?

Grimaldo is known for his attacking ability and passing range, with him notching up 3 assists in the league this season. While Rose certainly knows how to get around the Premier League, Grimaldo would have to adjust quickly should we actually move for him in the winter window.

The Spaniard is only 22 and has a lot of time on his hands to get better, something he would achieve should he sign for us but it would make more sense for us to wait until the summer before we take any decision about Rose or Grimaldo.

We do need reinforcements in all positions – that is a certainty. With Rose not looking 100% certain for next season, we cannot start the season only with Ben Davies as our left-back option.

Competition for places is the only way we can get better and our players can get better, so spending £25m wouldn’t harm us in any way.
