According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Chelsea are already in talks with Portuguese giants FC Porto over a deal for Brazilian left-back Alex Telles.

The 27 year old left-back is keen on playing in the Premier League and a move to Chelsea appeals to him.

Telles’ contract with Porto expires in 2021, and although Porto would like to extend the deal, the Brazilian has refused to extend his Porto contract because he thinks that would harm his chances of leaving the club.

Telles has a release clause of £36 million but Chelsea believe he could be signed for less as he would have just one year left on his contract this summer.
