After rejecting Porto’s latest contract offer last month, Alex Telles is hot on the heels of PSG as the recently crowned Ligue One Champions look to strengthen their defence in preparation for next season.
PSG launched an initial £19m bid less than a week ago but are fending off competition from the likes of Chelsea, Sevilla and others.
The Premier League top six fall short of world class talent in the left back position but Chelsea are currently the only Premier League side pursuing the Brazilian’s signature.
The Premier League has seen many attacking full backs over the years but Alex Telles certainly presents a more balanced approach, posing a huge threat in defence as well as going forward.
Telles notched ten goals and nine assists across all competitions this season which makes him one of the most prolific full backs in recent years.
He most certainly could be the missing puzzle piece in Chelsea’s game with the blues desperately holding onto a Champions League position ahead of the 2020/21 season.
