Report: Chelsea prepared to double Danny Rose’s wages

Danny Rose of Tottenham Hotspur warms up prior to the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea at White Hart Lane on January 4, 2017 in London, England.

Chelsea reportedly want to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea are interested in signing Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window, according to The London Evening Standard.

It has been reported that the defending Premier League champions are ready to double the salary of the England international left-back.

Rose reportedly earns around £60,000 per week as salary at Tottenham, and the Blues would not hesitate to double his wages and pay him £120,000 per week, claims the report.

Tottenham value the the 27-year-old left-back at £50 million, claims The London Evening Standard, but it has been reported that that would be an issue for Chelsea either.

Rose is one of the best left-backs in the Premier League, and the former Leeds United prospect would be a very good signing for Chelsea, who are one of the biggest clubs in England and in Europe and will be aiming to win the Champions League this season.

However, with the 2017-18 Premier League campaign having already started and the defender injured at the moment, it is hard to see Spurs sell him this summer.

Meanwhile, Chris Waddle has backed Tottenham to win the Premier League title this season, as reported by BBC Sport.

The former Spurs star has predicted Spurs to clinch the championship ahead of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.

“I know Spurs haven't signed anybody yet but I think there is plenty of time to get in what they need,” Waddle told BBC Sport. “The squad they have already got came very close last year, and they proved they could beat the big teams when they had to.

“The only thing that can set in now is complacency, but I don't think that will happen with the manager they have got - Mauricio Pochettino is a very talented manager, and I don't think he is frightened to fire the bullets if he needs to.”
