Three Manchester City players Tottenham should demand in exchange for Danny Rose

White Hart Lane 6

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose is being linked with a move to Manchester City.

The Daily Mirror has reported that Manchester City are interested in a deal for Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose, as they look to go after more home grown players.

Tottenham fans will be protective of a player who has graduated through their youth system, but City are one of the only clubs with the resources needed to force the hands of any club in relation to any player.

A big cash deal will be tempting for Tottenham and chairman Daniel Levy, but there are some players Spurs could demand in exchange if they show a willingness to do a deal with the Etihad club.

Stevan Jovetic

Tottenham’s need for an additional striker is clear, to take some of the pressure away from Harry Kane.

Kane has been superb this season, but he’s had to deal with the pressure of leading Tottenham’s attack with no real support from Roberto Soldado or Emmanuel Adebayor.

Jovetic’s record this season shows five goals and three assists from his Premier League appearances and he would address a current need in Tottenham’s squad.

Alvaro Negredo

On loan away from Manchester City at Valencia until the end of the season. With Sergio Aguero and Wilfried Bony ahead of him in the pecking order, he may be looking for a permanent move away from the club this summer.

He’s a strong forward with a low centre of gravity, who seems to like harassing and pressing the opposition defence.

He’s a forward who could create plenty of space for the creative players in Tottenham’s midfield to exploit and is intelligent enough to play effectively alongside Kane.

Scott Sinclair

Currently on loan at Aston Villa and playing well under former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood.

Sinclair is a player who has the ability to play down either wing and he would work well in a midfield with Andros Townsend on the opposite side.

Not a greatly inspiring deal for Tottenham fans, but Sinclair’s presence in the squad should prevent Mauricio Pochettino from having to play someone like Christian Eriksen in a slightly wider position.
