Tottenham's Danny Rose, according to reports, has become the subject of significant interest by Manchester City and Chelsea with both poised to make a bid for him this summer. What are your thoughts?

If you asked any Chelsea fan of areas on the pitch that they believe need to be strengthened, they would respond by saying the left back area. Despite denying interest in heading back to Atletico Madrid, Filipe Luis is consistently being linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Why is that happening? The only explanation I have is because of the poor challenge he has made to force Cesar Azpilicueta out of the side to take his place. Do you agree?

As with any signing, I firmly believe that it should be someone that provides the current member of the side in that position with instant competition for their place and to maintain that all season. If you bring someone into the club as an obvious backup (apart from in goal) then I'm not prepared to accept that as we need people that will push this team forward.

Does Danny Rose provide that competition for Cesar Azpilicueta? Could he provide him with more of a challenge for his place and as a result, inspire someone like Branislav Ivanovic to perform better knowing that the Spaniard could just as easily move over to the right hand side?

I'm not 100% certain on Rose personally but that's just me. He is only 24 and has the best years ahead of him and compared to another player we are being linked with in that position Fabio Coentrao, I would take Rose over him all day long.

I personally believe that Azpilicueta is better than he is but I guess we should also take into consideration a players development working under Jose Mourinho and playing alongside John Terry with all his knowledge and experience in the game.

You would imagine that Rose wouldn't come cheap either.

Are there better options elsewhere?
