Brazilian full-back Filipe Luis has left Stamford Bridge. Now, the Daily Mail claims that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is considering making an offer for Galatasaray defender Alex Telles, also Brazilian, as a like for like replacement.
With an enquiry apparently lodged already, the 22-year-old is seen as a long-term option and is also likely to be a cheaper alternative to Augsburg full-back Abdul Baba Rahman, whom Chelsea are rumoured to be looking into.
The Daily Mail expect the left-back currently plying his trade in Turkey, to cost around £8 million.
The landlord here in the Transfer Tavern spoke up about this price tag: “I’m not too sure how good he is to be honest, he is a bit unknown, but £8 million in today’s market for a young Brazilian, its a no brainer for me!”
