Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are reportedly plotting a big money move for FC Porto left-back Alex Telles this summer.

Atletico Madrid are looking for a new left-back and they have settled for Brazilian defender Alex Telles who has been in superb form for Portuguese champions FC Porto this season.

Alex Telles has previously been linked with West London giants Chelsea but it looks like the Blues will miss out on his transfer to Atletico Madrid.

According to the report from popular media channel ESPN, Atletico Madrid is plotting a triple raid on FC Porto and the aforementioned Alex Telles is one of the players they are targeting at the moment.

Apart from Alex Telles, Atletico Madrid are also eyeing various moves for Brazilian centre back Felipe and Mexican international midfielder Hector Herrera.

It was revealed that Hector Herrera will join Atletico Madrid on a free transfer this summer after they saw off competition from the likes of AC Milan and Arsenal for his services.

Atletico Madrid is plotting a €25m move for Felipe while the fee for Alex Telles is said to be around €40m.

Alex Telles has scored five goals and provided eight assists in 47 games in all competitions for FC Porto in this campaign.
