Chelsea enter Cancelo chase

Chelsea are the latest team to express an interest in signing full-back Joao Cancelo from Valencia, according to reports.

El Mundo Deportivo cite reports from Sky Sports in England that the English champions want the Portuguese defender, who is also wanted by Juventus and Tottenham.

The 23-year-old is reportedly rated at €25m by officials at the Mestalla but a potential bidding war could drive up his price.

Chelsea, like Spurs, are said to have had the defender extensively scouted at this summer’s European Under 21 championships.

Signed from Benfica in 2015 for €15m, Cancelo has made 73 La Liga appearances for Los Che and netted three international goals in four caps.
