The left wing of the defence at Chelsea is a somewhat problematic area right now, with manager Frank Lampard choosing to play a right footed 30-year old over both Emerson and Marcos Alonso right now.

Spain international has dropped way down the pecking order and will certainly be seeking a move away from Stamford Bridge during this transfer window if he wants to play regular senior team football again.

Emerson hasn’t been showing the form that he showed last term when he ousted Alonso from Maurizio Sarri’s regular starting XI.

So it is certainly a department that the west London heavyweights boss might look to strengthen this window.

A player who has often been connected with a move to Chelsea is Porto defender Alex Telles, and he is being mentioned again now.

According to a recent report from Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Chelsea are interested in landing the 27-year old Brazil international, after claims he is unlikely to pen a new contract at Porto, as cited by Be Soccer.

In other news, Chelsea chairman Roman Abramovich has reportedly given the green light for the Blues to launch a £102m bid for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho.

The 19-year-old forward has again been in impressive form for die Borussen during the 2019-20 campaign, netting 13 times and contributing 14 assists in 25 appearances across all competitions.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all continue to be connected with a move for the England international, who is understood to seek pastures new in this summer’s transfer market.
