Tottenham Hotspur trio of Michael Dawson, Danny Rose and Jake Livermore are summer transfer targets of FA Cup finalists Hull City.
FA Cup Finalists Hull City and Premier League opposition Tottenham Hotspur enjoys a good working relationship between them. Last summer manager Steve Bruce had convinced the Spurs hierarchy to sell Tom Huddlestone and to loan Jake Livermore to Hull City and the duo had revived their career at KC Stadium. The Tigers wants to build on to that relation and have opened talks with Tottenham for the permanent signing of Jake Livermore along with Danny Rose and Tottenham skipper Michael Dawson.
The addition of Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore had stabilized the Hull City midfield last season. The duo worked in tandem and guided Steve Bruce’s side to a 11th placed finish in English Premier League. Performance of Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore was crucial in Hull City’s march into FA Cup final as well. Steven Bruce is planning to build on to the success and his first target this summer is to secure the signature of Jake Livermore on a permanent basis.
24-year-old Tottenham midfielder played in all the 36 games of the Premier League, which he was eligible for. His performances especially in sync with play-maker Tom Huddlestone was a vital aspect in Hull City’s brilliant campaign. It is reported that Hull City have opened talks with Tottenham Hotspur over the permanent signing of Jake Livermore.
Steve Bruce is well aware of the tough competition inside Premier League and is looking for further options to bolster his squad. His scouting eyes has again ended up at North Londonm, where the report of interest is left back Danny Rose and Center Back Michael Dawson.
Tottenham skipper Michael Dawson is an ambitious target for Steve Bruce’s side, but his lack of pace is not suitable for the adventurous Tottenham style of play. QPR and West Ham United are also reportedly monitoring the situation of the Tottenham center back, whose future will depend on the kind of philosophy the new manager implements at White Hart Lane. Dawson’s lack of pace was often exploited by the top teams in Premier League and it is an area where Tottenham are looking to improve this summer.
Left Back Danny Rose had a season to stake claims for a regular role at White Hart Lane. He failed to grab the opening, while his poor form and injury prone season has alerted Tottenham Hotspur to look for alternatives. Benoit Assou-Ekotto is likely to return after his loan spell, while youngster Ezekiel Fryers has a season under belt which further intensifies the competition at left back.
Hull City has targeted the right players in Jake Livermore, Michael Dawson and Danny Rose. None of them are integral to Tottenham Hotspur plans, while all of them can improve the Tigers side. Can the FA Cup finalist persuade Tottenham think tank to sell their home grown talent?
