It appears that Stoke City are asking the simple question of just how much they really want Asmir Begovic!

In recent days, if the press have their facts correct, Chelsea have seen an initial opening bid of £6 million rejected and have subsequently increased that opening bid to £8 million, in the hope of persuading Stoke City to sell.

But, this morning it appears that Stoke have upped the ante one more notch and are insisting that if Chelsea want Asmir Begovic to replace the departed Petr Cech as the under-study to Thibaut Courtois.

The Potteries club are insisting that Chelsea, as well as parting with £8 million, should also allow a player to go on loan to the Britannia Stadium this coming season as well.

Furthermore, the insinuation is that they would like one of the following trio:-

? Victor Moses
? Patrick Bamford


? Reuben Loftus-Cheek

I have my view on the request, I`d let Moses stay at Stoke for another season, but what is your opinion?

Would Bamford be your preferred option as a season at Stoke would enable us to see how he performs in top-flight football or is it the ideal opportunity for Loftus-Cheek to show what he can do, on a regular basis, in the Premier League.

Here at Vital Chelsea we`d appreciate your views on the subject matter.
