Want to hear one of the oddest transfer rumours of the summer? Danny Rose to Schalke is certainly up there.
According to Sky Sports on Wednesday night, last season’s Bundesliga runners-up were in talks with Tottenham Hotspur about signing the left-back on loan. It is reported that Rose has been given permission to talk to other clubs after falling out of favour for Spurs, making just ten Premier League appearances in 2017/18.
But the Sun believes that Rose has no interest in joining his former teammates Benjamin Stambouli and Nabil Bentaleb at the Veltins Arena. Instead, the 28-year-old England international is dreaming of a move to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
Tottenham and PSG have become rather comfortable bedfellows of late with Les Parisiens sending Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier to their English counterparts in the last year. And it will be interesting to see whether Mauricio Pochettino’s side are willing to return the favour.
Paris United reported on Wednesday that Tottenham were interested in PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa; an attack-minded France international renowned for producing something out of the ordinary. He even scored a Champions League hat-trick last season.
So could a swap deal involving both players be on the cards before Thursday’s transfer deadline?
