According to The Sun, Tottenham are looking to offload fan favourite Danny Rose and replace him with Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon in a deal worth £35m.
Well, the Champions League finalists are reportedly happy to let the England international leave the club, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to trade the 28-year-old for a younger model in 19-year-old Sessegnon.
The north Londoners may have to pay £35m for the teenager whose first taste of Premier League football ended in relegation with the Cottagers.

Spurs are said to be finding it difficult to offload Rose, however, and the clubs interested in signing the former Sunderland left-back are struggling to agree on a deal that factors in his wages.
Sessegnon is believed to be viewed as a long-term replacement for the ageing Rose.
Some Spurs fans absolutely love Rose and would be gutted if he left.
They adore his committed performances and hold him in high regard due to the fact he has been with them since 2007, spending 12 years with the club since signing as a teenager – they will always remember the screamer he scored against Arsenal on his debut.
What Danny Rose gives us in games, his passion, commitment & his aggression think he’s irreplaceable. OK it’s going to happen but now is not the time? #COYS

If Danny Rose isn't in a spurs shirt next season I'm done. The bloke plays and speaks with so much passion

If he goes ahead of Davies there are issues at the club

As you can see, some Tottenham fans really would not be too happy if Rose left the club this summer, which is the last thing the club needs having got the supporters back in their good books after watching games at Wembley and a lack of spending in the last two transfer windows drained the life out of them.
The new stadium and an exciting run to the Champions League final has built up a bond between the players, Pochettino and the supporters, so damaging ruining that by selling a fan favourite would be an unwise move.
