Danny Rose has an uncertain future at Tottenham after admitting in a recent interview that he could leave the club this summer. The Lilywhites have been linked with Lucas Digne in recent weeks, with the Everton defender mooted as a potential replacement for the 28-year-old, but Ben Chilwell should be considered too – a player they tried to sign in 2018.

The £65k-per-week left-back has impressed at Leicester City. Since rising through the youth ranks to the first-team, he’s gone on to make 90 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating nine goals. Last season, Chilwell featured in 36 Premier League games, amassing 3240 minutes from a possible 3420.

The 22-year-old made four assists, created 45 chances, made 49 successful dribbles (58%), averaged 47 passes-per-game with 72% accuracy, whipped in 132 crosses with 17% accuracy, won 110 aerial duels (60%), blocked 64 passes/shots/crosses, made 129 clearances and averaged a tackle (55) or interception (38) every 37 minutes.

Chilwell has great potential at club and country level, but he won’t come cheap to sign. James Ducker of the Telegraph reported in March that the defender has a £75m asking price which is likely to be too steep for Tottenham.
