Juventus are reportedly prepared to rival Chelsea in the race to sign Porto defender Alex Telles, who has just over a year left on his contract.

Porto defender Alex Telles has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Juventus.

With just over a year remaining on his contract, Telles is said to be attracting the attention of Chelsea, who may look to replace Emerson Palmieri during the next transfer window.

However, while the Italy international has been heavily linked with a switch to Juve, the Serie A leaders are said to be looking at alternative options.

According to Tuttosport, Maurizio Sarri regards Brazil international Telles as the ideal replacement for Mattia De Sciglio.

As well as enhancing his reputation in Portugal, Telles also has experience of Serie A having represented Inter Milan during the 2015-16 campaign.

The 27-year-old is likely to cost in the region of £35m due to a release clause in his Porto deal.
