The agent of Porto fullback Alvaro Pereira has touted his client to Chelsea. Chelsea were blocked by Porto from signing the Uruguay international last summer.

"Chelsea are the European champions," agent Flavio Perchmen told TSF. "They are a great club for any player, not just Alvaro Pereira. They are a top 10 club in Europe.

"If there is a good offer, we will study it. We want the best solution for his career. We are open to offers, but it has to be from a club of the same level of Porto or better.

"We will see what happens. What he wants is to play."
