Chelsea boss Antonio Conte needs a competition for Victor Moses at right wing-back and even though the Blues have been linked with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain of Arsenal, Chelsea are still looking at other options.

According to Daily Express, Chelsea are interested in signing Joao Cancelo from Valencia as Conte looks to provide competition for Victor Moses.

The 23-year-old right-back, dubbed the new Philipp Lahm, impressed for Valencia last season, making 35 appearances in La Liga last season.

Cancelo was part of Portugal’s U-21 squad at the U-21 European Championship and Chelsea reportedly watched him closely during the tournament in Poland.

Chelsea could reportedly sign Cancelo for a fee of about £25million.
