Chelsea in the hunt for €35m-rated Brazil international

Chelsea keen to sign Porto left-back Alex Telles during the January. Blues were heavily linked with the footballer in this summer but the deal failed as Brazil international refused to move to Stamford Bridge. Now Maurizio Sarri preparing to renew negotiations with the footballer in this winter.

Marcos Alonso linked with La Liga giants, meanwhile, Emerson can’t suit the club yet. So new high-class defender is necessary and Alex is the perfect option in this situation. Telles is contracted with the Portuguese club until 2021 and his release clause is nearly €35m. His price could increase and become much more. Brazilian left-back joined Porto from Galatasaray in 2016 with a €7m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and played many games excellently. Last season 25-year-old played 42 games, scored 4 goals and made 14 assists in all competition. This is an amazing result and he can do much more with high-class partners.

Blues will do everything to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player as Arsenal also keen to sign him. Gunners left-back Nacho Monreal leaving the club, meanwhile, Sead Kolasinac injured and Unai Emery decided to fight for the Brazil international in this winter transfer window.
