Chelsea are pondering a raid on Porto for their football chief Antero Henrique. The Sunday Telegraph says Chelsea see Henrique as a replacement for Frank Arnesen, who left his director's role earlier this year to join Hamburg.

It is believed his name was raised as a possible recruit when Mourinho was in charge at Chelsea and again this summer following the appointment of Villas-Boas.

Chelsea were considering how to replace sporting director Frank Arnesen, who left for Hamburg, taking his deputy Lee Congerton with him.
