Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing FC Porto left-back Alex Telles who will be available for a reduced fee with the Portuguese club needing money to comply with Financial Fair Play conditions.
According to Portuguese Jornal de Noticias, Spurs are said to have entered the race to sign the player who has been heavily linked with a move to fellow Premier League outfit Everton.
Chelsea have also been keen to sign the 25-year-old in the past, having had a £20million offer rejected for the player who has chipped in with an impressive 19 assists during the season just gone.
In typical Daniel Levy fashion, he could turn the screw on Porto’s valuation considering the financial predicament they currently find themselves in.
It remains to be seen whether Danny Rose will be leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer, and if he does, Mauricio Pochettino will need to bring in another left-back to compete with Ben Davies for the starting berth.
