Chelsea FC line up Porto defender

Alvaro Pereira may be tempted at a reunion with his old managerChelsea FC are fully committed to the acquisition of FC Porto wingback Alvaro Pereira with the Stamford Bridge manager, Andre Villas-Boas ready to make a bid for the 25 year old by the weekend.

Being a former player under Villa-Boas, Pereira, who has been with the Portuguese side since 2009 does favour a move back with his old manager but he will not come cheaply with a bid of £18m to £20m expected in an effort to tempt his former side to part with the Uruguayan’s services.

It is believed that Liverpool have also been monitoring the left-footer who can also play in midfield although we have been led to believe that a reunion with Villas-Boas is high on the players agenda with Liverpool now having settled for a move for Newcastle United’s Jose Enrique.
