Report: Atletico Madrid 'extensively scouting' Danny Rose, Tottenham could sell for £14m

Danny Rose and Jan Vertonghen

Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham left back Danny Rose.

According to the Daily Mirror, Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur left back Danny Rose this summer.

Diego Simeone's men lost Filipe Luis to Chelsea last summer and it seems that Atletico aren't quite happy with the two left backs they brought in to replace him, Cristian Ansaldi and Guilherme Siqueira.

Now, the Mirror believe that Simeone will turn to Spurs star Rose - if he can't persuade Chelsea to sell Filipe Luis back to Atletico.

Former Leeds youngster Rose has been superb this season, developing rapidly under Mauricio Pochettino and enjoying his most productive campaign to date.

The 24-year-old only signed a new contract to stay at White Hart Lane last summer, but Spurs will now be worrying about his future after such an impressive season.

The report suggests that Atletico have been scouting Rose 'extensively' this season, and are now ready to fight with Manchester City for his signature.

The Mirror also note that Spurs could consider selling Rose for £14m, which should fit into the budgets of both Atletico and Manchester City this summer.

Nervous times are ahead for Spurs, though with Ben Davies in the ranks, they would at least have his replacement already at the club if Rose did leave at the end of the season.
