Liverpool mega raid for controversial Tottenham star would tick all the boxes

Danny Rose’s future at Tottenham Hotspur is uncertain after his candid interview given to The Sun about feeling underpaid and being critical of the club’s transfer business.

Manchester United and Chelsea are both keen on the left-back, but Liverpool are the top team who need him more than most.

The Reds have struggled to find a quality player to fill the position for the last few years, with Alberto Moreno failing to live up to expectations.

James Milner has filled in, and summer signing Andrew Robertson screams long term back up rather than being the future of the position.

A big money move for Danny Rose would change the outlook at the club, and secure a left-back who could feature for the Reds for the next five years.

Liverpool could afford to double Rose’s £65,000 per week wages and make him feel valued – and while Rose says he wants to win trophies, which Liverpool haven’t in recent years, Jurgen Klopp may be able to get him to buy in.

Rose admitted in his interview it is his desire to play up north, and Liverpool tick nearly every box on and off the pitch.

Having been willing to pay mega money to land Virgil van Dijk or Naby Keita and failing, Liverpool could pay the fee required to sign Rose.

Doing so would suddenly be a big statement of intent.
