EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Danny Rose is being lined up for a move to Juventus after falling out of favour at Tottenham, Football Insider understands.
Rose looks set to leave Spurs this summer after the club announced today he was not part of the squad for their pre-season trip to Singapore and had been left behind in England to discuss a potential exit.
News of the England international’s availability has alerted a number of clubs in the Premier League and abroad, but a Tottenham source has told Football Insider that Juventus have emerged as surprise suitors for the England international.
The Serie A champions are looking to strengthen their full-back options as they look to have two top players for each position.
The source explained that they are exploring a move for Rose before the Italian window shuts on 23 August, 15 days after the Premier League.
The 29-year-old’s future at Tottenham has been the subject of speculation for some time and it appears he could join fellow full-back and England international Kieran Trippier in leaving north London.
Trippier has joined Atletico Madrid and Rose could also be heading overseas in what would represent an even more unexpected move.
Rose has turned 29 and his best days are considered to be behind him as he looks to end his 12-year association with Tottenham.
The serial Italian champions have already signed Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer from Arsenal this summer and now they could bring a first-team mainstay from their bitter rivals to Turin.
