Chelsea are looking to sign a new left-back next season.

And he could come straight from Portugal.

Porto’s Alex Telles has no intentions of signing a new contract with the club amid talks linking him with a move to one of Europe’s elite sides. The highly-revered left-back has thoroughly impressed since joining the club from Galatasaray in 2016, and it seems his time at Porto is drawing to a close with his contract set to expire in 2021.

The 27-year-old has featured 181 times for the Dragons, popping up with 21 goals and 51 assists during his time at the club. However, according to ​A Bola, the Brazilian is pushing for a move away from the Estadio do Dragao as soon as possible, and is unwilling to sign a new deal with the club unless his extremely high wage demands are met.

As a result, Porto want to cash in on the defender this summer, with a number of Europe’s biggest sides vying for Telles’ signature. Chelsea are one of those who have been persistently linked with the Brazilian as they look for a new first-choice left-back.

Telles’ greatest ambition is reportedly to play in England, making links with Chelsea likely to re-surface this summer. However, a number of ​Premier League clubs such as the two Manchester clubs and ​Tottenham may be in the window for defensive reinforcements this summer, making the Portuguese a highly sought after individual.
