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