Why have one left-back when you can have three?

Barcelona are reportedly interested in Porto left-back Alex Telles who has refused to sign a new contract with the Primeira Liga leaders.

According to Sport, the defender is one of four players the Spanish champions are keen on bringing in during the summer transfer window.

They reckon their chances of landing Telles are growing too, as he has rejected every contract renewal he’s been offered.

Here’s a look at how impressive he’s been this season:

Porto have previously been unwilling to negotiate and have simply directed clubs towards his €40 million release clause, but the report states things might be about to change.

Indeed there’s a chance Porto may decide to cash in on Telles in the summer as he will only have a year left on his current contract.

Barcelona are said to have already tried to investigate whether Telles would fancy a move to the Camp Nou but are likely to face competition from Chelsea.
