The future of Brazilian defender Alex is being speculated upon once again.
The future of Brazilian defender Alex is being speculated upon once again, with reports suggesting he could leave PSV Eindhoven for Chelsea.
Alex is owned by Chelsea, but has been on loan at PSV for the last couple of seasons.
The powerful centre half has proved his class both domestically and in Europe with PSV and it is believed that the Premiership champions want to incorporate him in their squad at Stamford Bridge.
"Alex must make contact with Chelsea," PSV spokesman Pedro Salazar told Algemeen Dagblad. "He is the property of Chelsea and we still do not know what the club want to do."
Alex is not certain to secure a work permit and PSV would like him to remain in the Netherlands if Chelsea do not receive the green light from the home office.
PSV, though, are preparing for life without Alex and reports suggest they have cast their eye over Eduardo Alcides.
The Brazilian is currently on the books of Benfica, but a move to PSV would see him link up once again with coach Ronald Koeman and this is something which appeals to the defender.
