Tottenham are reportedly weighing up a move for Bologna left-back Adam Masina as a potential replacement for Danny Rose.
England star Rose has been strongly linked with a switch to Manchester United in the New Year, despite only recently returning from a long-term injury issue.
Since his return, Rose had been alternating with Ben Davies for the left wing-back spot but has been completely left out of the squad for a couple of high-profile games and that has led to renewed speculation about his future.
So much so that Mauricio Pochettino is said to have shown in an interest in 23-year-old Masina, who is also being targeted by Sevilla.
The Italian Under-21 international has just over 18 months left on his Bologna contract and could be available for a reasonable fee next summer, a move that would make sense given Tottenham’s reluctance to part company with Rose in January.
