Tottenham hopes of offloading Danny Rose have suffered a blow as Genoa have gone cold on a deal, Football Insider understands.
The left-back, 30, is surplus to requirements in north London and has been told he is free to find a new club.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that talks have been held over a move to Italian outfit Genoa but the deal being discussed has collapsed.
Spurs are open to loaning Rose out for the final year of his contract after struggling to secure the £5million fee they wanted.
Newcastle United have cooled their interest in the England international after he spent the second half of last season on loan at the club.
Rose exit talks come amid Tottenham announcing the signing at the weekend of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old left-back has signed a five-year contract with the Londoners after they had a £28million bid accepted.
Reguilon, who was a key player in Sevilla’s Europa League-winning season while on loan in 2019-20, is set to compete with Ben Davies for a starting place in Jose Mourinho’s side.
Rose has been frozen out at Tottenham and has not been given a squad number for this season.
Jose Mourinho has said that he is “happy” for Rose to leave Tottenham and added that it would be “very good for him” to join Genoa.
The pair fell out last season over the long-serving left-back’s playing time.
