Tottenham Hotspur fans were reacting negatively after reports linking them with the signing of Alex Grimaldo from Liga Nos side Benfica.
According to A Bola (via TEAMtalk), Arsenal, Napoli and the Lilywhites will battle it out to land the Spanish left-back in 2020.
Do you trust Daniel Levy to fund an overhaul at Tottenham?
The reports also state that Spurs are keen on signing two new full-backs in the upcoming January transfer window.
As well as more assists, £28.8m-rated Grimaldo ( via Transfermarkt) averages more shots per game and more key passes per game than his English counterpart. He also averages almost double the number of tackles per game than Rose, showing his tough tackling nature (via WhoScored).
Despite the positives, fans reacted negatively to the report linking the club with Grimaldo as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Spurs fans:
I prefer Alex Telles from Porto

Let me get this straight we have three left backs in our current squad and Spurs want to sign another one. We need a RIGHT-BACK.

Even if we get him, for the first year he’ll only play the last 10mins of every other match.

We don’t need a left back as urgently as we need a right back

Rather have Chilwell, he’s actually proven in the premier league. Grimaldo looks better fitted for Serie A

Pass Next please
