Alex Telles agent hints at Chelsea interest

The Brazilian full back’s agent has revealed that Jose Mourinho’s side is really interested in acquiring his client’s signature

The reigning Premier League champions are currently in the market for a left-back as a back up to Cesar Azpilicueta following the departure of Filipe Luis to Atletico Madrid and although the priority target has always been Augsburg man Abdul Baba Rahman, the player’s club’s asking price has forced the Blues to look elsewhere in the market.

Telles is currently under contract with Turkish giants Galatasaray and the player’s agent, Fernando Otto, has admitted that the Premier League champions are interested in the player along with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Otto told Eurosport Turkey: “There are clubs that are making offers although none have been official and he could play for Chelsea and PSG without using a foreign player space due to having an Italian passport but he is happy at Galatasaray.”
