Chelsea target Alex Telles aims to secure a move as soon as possible before the close of the transfer window.

Telles wants to fasten up his move to Stamford Bridge before the close of the window transfer period this month as he refused to sign an extension with Porto.

Chelsea is desperately in need of a left-back after Marcol Alonso and Emerson Palmieri failed to live up to the expectations under Frank Lampard.

The Blues have identified the Brazilian defender as their target as the defender could be their best option as Leicester City refused to sell Ben Chilwell.

Telles has been in superb form since his arrival to Porto from Galatasaray in four seasons ago and Porto might be forced to sell the 27-year-old defender with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2021.

Porto signed the Brazilian defender for £5.85m but the Portuguese team is willing to make a huge profit from his sale, with Chelsea ready to make their first signing since their transfer ban was cut short.

Lampard is prepared to face Arsenal on Tuesday at the Stamford Bridge after the 1-0 defeat at St-James Park on Saturday.
