Danny Rose Tottenham

Danny Mills reckons Tottenham defender Danny Rose would be a great signing for Arsenal if they miss out in Kieran Tierney.

Tierney has been linked with a move to Arsenal throughout the summer, with Celtic demanding a double record fee for the full-back.

After having multiple bids knocked back, the Gunners were thought to have stepped away from negotiations.

But they remain ‘confident’ of following up the signing of Nicolas Pepe by striking a deal for Tierney.

If that deal doesn’t go through then Mills recommends Arsenal pursue a deal for Rose, who is reportedly the subject of interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

“If Arsenal can’t get Tierney, would they take Danny Rose? They should do,” Mills told Football Insider.

“The Arsenal-Tottenham thing is of course always going to be an issue but they would take him.

“Manchester City, he’s probably a little bit old for the demographic they’re trying to bring in. Manchester United, Liverpool – they’re okay. Chelsea can’t sign him.

“Realistically, in terms of where he would want to go, they’d be up there challenging, in and around, what other London clubs could afford him?”
