Tottenham's potential acquisition of Fabio Coentrao in the deal that would see Gareth Bale join Real Madrid poses no concern to incumbent full-back Danny Rose.
Coentrao has been mentioned as a possible makeweight in Real Madrid's world record pursuit of Bale, with the Spanish giants closing in on a deal for the Wales international.
The Portugal international joined Real Madrid for €30 million only two years ago, and his recruitment would somewhat soften the blow Bale's exit would make at White Hart Lane.
Coentrao's places the position of Rose, 23, in doubt after the youngster was rewarded for an impressive pre-season with a starting berth in each of Tottenham's competitive outings so far this season.
Rose, however, would not be daunted if Coentrao arrived at Spurs before the close of the transfer window, and would welcome competition for places at left-back the signing of the 25-year-old would present.
"You find a lot about yourself when you have got competition in the squad so I will welcome any new faces," Rose said, as reported by ITV Sport.
"It won't change how I train every day and how I play if given the chance.
"It will be interesting if Tottenham do bring in another left-back. Then I will just have to assess that when it happens, but I welcome any new players."
