Everton have been urged to make a move for Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose in the January transfer window by Darren Bent.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Spurs, Aston Villa and Sunderland striker believes that the Goodison Park faithful need cover at left-back following the bad injury to Lucas Digne, and Rose may well fit the bill:
“I’d even maybe look at Danny Rose as well in January, because obviously Lucas Digne is a very good player but as something’s happened to him, you need cover.
“If you’ve got Danny Rose there, he’d be another one I’d look at as well. That’s the one thing Everton lack, squad depth.
“For me, that’d be one I’d definitely look at, I’m sure there are going to be a few in for him but what he can’t afford to do is sit out another half a season without playing any games.”
Rose has a wealth of experience
The England international has a wealth of experience under his belt, having played in nearly 200 games at the highest level in the Premier League with the Lilywhites, as well as for Sunderland and Newcastle United (Transfermarkt).
Would Rose be a good signing for Everton?
He can still be ‘tremendous’ on his day, as he won a total of 4.9 of his duels a match in the top flight in the 2019/20 term, as well as averaging a very impressive 1.8 clearances and 1.7 tackles per appearance as a full-back (Sofascore).
At 30 years of age, Rose could offer an experienced head in the dressing room for the Merseyside club and he may well be a player who Carlo Ancelotti should look to pursue.
Given that Jose Mourinho already has Sergio Reguilon and Ben Davies as his options at left-back at the moment, the Portuguese boss may wish to sell Rose before his contract expires, with the Toffees a potential suitor.
