Liverpool are keen on a move for Porto defender Alex Telles, who is considered to have a £35million release clause included in the contract and is targeted by Chelsea. The left-back won the Primeira Liga with Porto the last term and provided an impressive 14 assists from the defence during the title-winning campaign.
The 25-year-old added another six assists in matches in other competitions and managed four goals as well in 45 fixture. Le Parisien claims Jurgen Klopp wants to sign the full-back, who is also being monitored by Chelsea, who have been watching him since January and were considering triggering the Brazilian’s release clause.
Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to have shown interested in South American, and after the Reds joined the running, a bidding war could erupt for the full-back. Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in some genuine competition for Andrew Robertson, with the expectation that Alberto Moreno will be sold this summer. Moreno lost his spot to Robertson when he was forced to sit out December and January due to injury.
