According to the Daily Star, Goodison Park could be the next destination for wantaway Spurs ace Danny Rose, after the north London outfit slapped a £45 million price-tag on his head.
The 27-year-old is currently out of favour at Tottenham, and is behind Ben Davies in the left-back pecking order.
After Rose was left out of the squad for the north London Derby against Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, rumours began to circulate regarding his future with the Lilywhites, and it would be no surprise to see him leave the club, either in January or next summer.
The Daily Star claim that Manchester United are leading the race for the England international, but also state that Sam Allardyce could bring him to Everton, with the 63-year-old likely to be soundly financially backed by Farhad Moshiri.
It is debatable, however, whether Rose would consider moving to a club where Champions League football is not on offer, although the guarantee of regular first-team football could hold a major sway in his decision.
Danny Rose in action
The 27-year-old would be a superb addition to the Blues squad, and would be the ideal long-term replacement for the ageing Leighton Baines.
And with the opening of the January transfer window just 28 days away, this will certainly be one to keep a close eye on, for both Everton and Tottenham fans.
