Sky Sports Journalist Claims Chelsea Remain Interested in Signing João Cancelo”

Premier League champions Chelsea are showing interest in Valencia full-back Joao Cancelo, Sky Sports can reveal.

Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri is keen to add Cancelo to the ranks in Turin and the Valencia man is the Italian tactician's first choice.

The 23-year-old had been expected to join Juventus after Tottenham cooled their interest at the weekend but Chelsea have asked about his situation too as they search for a new wing back.

"Conte wants to sign at least one wing-back this summer", Solhekol said on Sky Sports.

Should a move for Cancelo collapse, Chelsea could instead target fellow right-backs Paris Saint-Germain bad boy Serge Aurier or Monaco ace Djibril Sidibe.

Pacey and versatile having played all the way up the right flank, Cancelo is already a Portugal worldwide with three caps in five games, and it's claimed that Chelsea watched him in action for Portugal at the Under-21 European Championships in Poland earlier this summer. The Italian manager, who has also been linked with Juventus left-back Alex Sandro, is wanting to upgrade his right wing-back position this season, a position now filled by Victor Moses.

Valencia need to sell to fund rebuilding and have also looked to offload central defenders Ezequiel Garay and Aymen Abdennour this summer. He lost his place there because of new right-back Dani Alves.
