Manchester City reportedly identify Porto defender Alex Telles as a summer transfer target.

Manchester City are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Porto defender Alex Telles.

The 27-year-old has been in impressive form for his Portuguese club during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing 10 goals and nine assists in 40 appearances in all competitions.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with the Brazil international, although a recent report claimed that the Blues were now prioritising a move for Leicester City's Ben Chilwell.

Paris Saint-Germain are also thought to be interested in a summer deal, but according to Le 10 Sport, City are ready to rival the French champions for the left-back's signature.

The report claims that Citizens boss Pep Guardiola is a huge admirer of Telles and wants his club to 'fight' to secure a deal ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

The defender, whose existing contract with Porto is due to expire next summer, has contributed eight goals and five assists in 23 Primeira Liga outings this season.
