Chelsea linked with Newcastle defender and Uruguay star

Chelsea are interested in signing Uruguay international Álvaro Pereira from Porto, according to The People.

Pereira, 26, is a left-sided player who can operate at full-back or further forward.

It is claimed that Porto rate him at £23m and that Chelsea may offer £13m plus one of their young players.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror say Chelsea are keeping tabs on Newcastle’s Danny Simpson after he rejected a new contract at St James’ Park.

The People also suggest that QPR manager Mark Hughes is considering signing David Bentley on loan from Tottenham next season.

Bentley, who has been out of favour at Spurs for some time, played under Hughes at Blackburn.

The England international currently has a knee injury but has been tipped to be fit for the start of next term.
