Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to bid for Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.

A Bola says Villas-Boas has Moutinho under consideration for the January market, though is more likely to go for the Portugal international next summer.

Moutinho's buyout clause is set at £35 million, but Chelsea hope to negotiate a much lower fee for the midfielder.

Porto need a major sale to balance their books next month and are understood to be willing to negotiate the sale of Moutinho starting at £22 million.
