Porto target Feyenoord left-back Malacia to replace Telles

FC Porto may have found their Alex Telles replacement in the form of Feyenoord youngster Tyrell Malacia.

Telles has reportedly been close to joining PSG, although Chelsea are also in the mix for his signature.

And according to Feyenoord Transfermarkt, the Dragões have been watching Malacia, a 20-year-old full-back.

Since the end of the winter break, Porto have sent scouts to Rotterdam several times to watch Malacia.

And they are ready to swoop for the Dutch under-21 international after Telles leaves.

Malacia has made 12 appearances in the Eredivisie this season, notching up three assists.

He also delivered an assist (and an own goal!) in the Europa League against none other than Porto, which may have triggered their interest.

Feyenoord have sufficient cover if they do lose Malacia, with Ridgeciano Haps a regular in the side.

Malacia is valued at €3.2m by the Transfermarkt website and is under contract with Feyenoord until 2023.
