Danny Rose could be set to make a move to Liverpool in the January transfer window. Reports in the Sunday People suggest that the 22-year-old could join the Reds for £5m in the new year.
With wholesale changes expected at Anfield during the transfer window the England under-21 International could provide a solution to Liverpool’s problem left back position. Both José Enrique and Stewart Downing have fallen out of favour with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and are likely to be sold in January if a buyer can be found.
Rose who can also play on the left wing would offer Rodgers some versatility in a squad that is failing to live to up to expectations. The full back would be a good buy for Rodgers, who will be keen to make sure that his transfer dealings prove to be better value for money than those of his predecessor.
With the exception of Joe Allen, the Northern Irishman has yet to make his own mark on the Liverpool squad, and with plenty of deadwood left from the Kenny Dalglish era he will have his work cut out if he is to turn Liverpool into a force to be reckoned with again. However a player with the potential that Rose has is a step in the right direction for the club, but there is no guarantee that Rodgers will get his man this winter.
Despite a clause in the loan agreement between Tottenham and Sunderland that will allow Rose to leave the Stadium of Light in January, the Black Cats are likely to want to hold on to the 22-year-old to at least the end of the season.
Rose has already said that he sees his future away from White Hart Lane, but whether he would chose a move to Anfield over remaining at the Stadium of Light remains to be seen.
