Chelsea look to have received a transfer boost in their chase to sign Porto left-back Alex Telles.
Blues boss Frank Lampard is said to be keen on bringing in a new full-back, with neither Marcos Alonso or Emerson Palmieri staking a strong claim to the position this season.
Various reports have linked Chelsea with a move for Telles at the end of the current season, who looks likely to leave Porto.
The 27-year-old will have just one year remaining on his contract, and the Portuguese club are hoping to sell him on for a decent price while they still can.

Paris Saint-Germain chief Leonardo is also said to be extremely keen on the Brazil international, but they are now said to be looking elsewhere.
That is because Telles recently changed agent to Pini Zahavi, who has close ties to Stamford Bridge.
Paris United state that Telles is not short of proposals, but a move would be very complicated for the Ligue 1 side, and Zahavi is said to be in “very advanced contact” about a move to West London for his client.
And so PSG are now said to be taking a look at Juventus defender Alex Sandro instead.
Leonardo will apparently be in contact with the Serie A side soon about a potential move for Sandro.
Which all spells good news for Chelsea’s hopes of landing Telles from Porto.
