Chelsea target Kleper Pepe is focused only on Porto's Champions League clash.
Chelsea are reportedly set to bid for the signature of Porto defender Kleper Pepe, although the player himself is focused only on the teams' forthcoming UEFA Champions League clash.
Real Madrid and Juventus are both rumoured to be in the running for the £12million-rated Brazilian, with another assured performance at Stamford Bridge next week sure to attract further interest.
Porto president Jorge Pinto da Costa admits his club may have to consider offers for the highly-rated star.
"If a super offer comes in we will certainly study the subject," said da Costa.
However Pepe played down rumours of a move to the Premiership.
"I remain calm about it because I have a contract here until 2009," said Pepe.
"I'm only thinking of going to London to knock Chelsea out of the Champions League."
Porto defender Jose Bosingwa is rated extremely doubtful for the clash after suffering a muscle strain in the team's 1-0 win over Sporting Braga on Saturday.
There is better news on Lucho Gonzalez who should be fit after leaving the pitch against Braga as a precaution.
