Everton and Tottenham consider fullback swap deal

Everton and Tottenham are considering a fullback swap deal.

The Mirror says they are looking at a shock swap deal involving left-backs Danny Rose and Lucas Digne.

Spurs want France star Digne – but Everton would only consider an approach if England's Rose was part of the deal.

And Rose admitted last week that his Tottenham future is in doubt and that he wants to go out “with a bang" against Liverpool in the Champions League final, if that's his Spurs farewell.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to freshen up the full-back roles next season and Digne, 25, has been identified as a top target.

He joined Everton last year for £18million from Barcelona, but is now valued at twice that figure after a successful first season in the Premier League.
