Liverpool ‘to battle Chelsea and PSG’ for £35million Porto star

Liverpool will vie with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain to land Porto’s Alex Telles this summer, according to reports in France.

The Brazilian left-back has come to the attention of the trio, reports Le Parisien (via TeamTalk) .

It’s claimed that Telles has a £35million release clause in his contract, and that Jurgen Klopp is keen to land the player, in a move that would allow the club to move on Alberto Moreno, 12 months before the end of his contract.

Teles, who played in Porto’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool in the Champions League last term, is under contract in Portugal until 2021.

Would the Reds be so keen to spend so much on a player that doesn’t automatically upgrade their first team?
