Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made their move for Porto’s Alex Telles by lodging an opening offer of £19million.

Telles is out of contract at Porto in the summer of 2021 and has attracted interest from Ligue 1 giants PSG, as well as both Chelsea and Barcelona.

And according to A Bola, via Le 10 Sport, they claim PSG have made an opening proposal of £19m for the 27-year-old Brazilian.

Porto are likely to cash-in on Telles this year as they look to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.

Chelsea were eyeing up a summer move for Leicester left back Ben Chilwell, but the hefty transfer price for the England international has led them to considering other alternatives, such as Telles.

But PSG are hoping to beat both Chelsea and Barcelona – who have also earmarked him as a summer transfer target – to his signature.

Telles was heavily linked with a move away from Porto last summer, with both Juventus and Atletico Madrid having been interested in his services.

But he could now be set to depart the Portuguese giants this summer, with it being unlikely that he will sign a new contract in the coming months.
