According to reports in The Evening Standard, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to sell Danny Rose and keep Toby Alderweireld as the deadline for many foreign clubs edges closer.
Well, The Evening Standard report that despite the fact Rose returned to the Spurs squad for their 3-1 win against Fulham at Wembley on Saturday, they are willing to consider offers for him after he rejected a move to Schalke.
The Evening Standard says that the 28-year-old would be open to joining Paris Saint-Germain however, and the north London outfit and Pochettino certainly wouldn’t stand in his way if the offer did arrive with the Argentine boss said to be happy to have Ben Davies and Kyle Walker-Peters as his left-back options – at least until the January transfer window.
The report adds that despite being heavily linked with an exit throughout the summer, Tottenham now expect to keep Rose’s teammate Alderweireld – he impressed in the victory against the Cottagers.
It’s difficult to say.
While it has been obvious for a while that Rose has been surplus to requirements under the former Southampton chief, getting rid of the experienced England international now would be a huge risk.
Tottenham want to be Premier League title contenders and compete in the Champions League, but they are only a Davies injury away from finding themselves in a big predicament should they let the 28-year-old go, with Walker-Peters a promising prospect but still hugely inexperienced at the very top level.

Letting Rose would certainly suggest that Pochettino is becoming a little too complacent, and it could be a decision that comes back to haunt him.
