Tottenham Ready To Offload Rose To Get The Signing Of This Ace Done: Pros And Cons Of The Move

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to offload Danny Rose in favour of signing Ryan Sessegnon this summer. The English international recently hinted that he would be prepared to leave Spurs, having been linked with a move to Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton. 

As a result, manager Mauricio Pochettino is now willing to trade Sessegnon, who could cost around £35 million, as his desired replacement for Rose. However, it is believed that the Fulham youngster would require £80k a week wages.

And in this article, we will discuss the pros and cons of Sessegnon’s potential arrival at Tottenham as a replacement for Rose.

Pros

One of the biggest factors that make Sessegnon such an appealing target for Tottenham is his age. He is currently 18 years old and is brimming with potential. And given Pochettino’s proficiency of nurturing young British talents, he could well be groomed into a world class player in future.

Rose, in contrast, is already 29 years old and is slowly nearing the final phase of his career. He has also struggled with injuries in recent years. 

Another key asset of Sessegnon’s overall game is his versatility. The youngster can cover the entire left flank. That means Pochettino will be able to utilise him not only as a left-back but also as a left-winger, which could aid the Argentine given Tottenham’s lack of natural wide-attacking options.

Aside from that, Sessegnon is considerably faster than Rose and could provide a genuine threat on the counter – making him an ideal signing for Spurs.

Cons

Rose is a technically gifted wing-back, who can not only ease his side’s build-up from the back with quick passing but can also link-up with teammates more effectively in the final third. This allows him to feature in central midfield, where his composure and positional helps him instigate his side during possession phases.

This is something Sessegnon lacks in his armoury as the youngster often relies on his pace and dribbling prowess. The 18-year-old is also not as defensively astute as Rose, who is hardened by years of experience in the English top flight.

Speaking of experience, Sessegnon’s lack of exposure at the highest level of football means that he might not be ready to feature in competitions like UEFA Champions League next season. 

At the same time, however, Sessegnon will have ample time to settle himself into this higher level of football as Tottenham already have Ben Davies as their number one choice in the left-back slot. And if the financial necessities don’t become an issue for the club, the youngster could be a smart long-term investment for the Lilywhites this summer.
