Chelsea have told Tottenham Hotspur to name their price for left-back Danny Rose amidst their search to replace Filipe Luis, who returned to Atletico Madrid after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

The Mirror reports that the Blues are willing to pay £15 million for Rose, 25, who would increase the number of homegrown players in their squad, though the left-back has never made an appearance for the national team.

Manchester City were also interested in the player described by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino as the "best English left-back in the league last season", but Manuel Pellegrini's side haven't yet followed up their interest with a bid.

Chelsea have also been linked with Augsburg's Abdul Baba Rahman and it is expected the Blues will go ahead and sign the Ghanaian international for £17 million if Spurs resist Jose Mourinho's advances.

Similar reports suggest that Spurs don't want to sell Rose but they do already have cover at left-back if a deal is reached - they signed Ben Davies from Swansea for a fee of £9 million last summer.

Rose has made 93 appearances in all competitions for Spurs, scoring seven goals.
