Tottenham Hotspur would be making a huge upgrade on their current left-back options if they were to bring in Everton’s Lucas Digne to replace Danny Rose.

The Daily Star claim that Spurs are lining up a £36 million move for Digne, which could see Rose move to Goodison Park.

If Spurs were to go through with the transfer they would definitely be making an improvement to their side.


Rose has had a strong season at Tottenham this campaign, and his aggressive performances have earned him great credit.

Rose is a very solid left-back, but Digne looks to be a more complete player.

Rose lets himself down in the final third, where his crossing can be erratic at times.

Digne, on the other hand, is so reliable when given an opportunity to put the ball into the box.

The Frenchman has five assists and four goals for Everton this term, where his performances have made him a real fans’ favourite.

The likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane would surely thrive off the services that they could be offered from Digne.

And although Spurs would face a fight to get Digne to White Hart Lane, if they could pull off the transfer it would be a step in the right direction.
