Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is already making transfer plans for the summer, with three players from FC Porto on his radar.
The 34-year-old, who enjoyed a season of dominance during his time at the Estádio do Dragão, has struggled to recapture that success at Stamford Bridge after his arrival in west London back in the summer.
But, with the Portuguese manager insisting his 'project' remains on track, it appears transfer focus has switched towards his former club in an effort to change the Blues' fortunes.
Whilst his quotes surrounding striker Hulk have stolen all the headlines today, 'AVB' was also happy to admit that midfielder Joao Moutinho and wing-back Alvaro Pereira would be a welcome addition at the end of the season.
"They could surely play in the Premier League and at Chelsea," Villas-Boas responded when questioned over interest in the pair by radio station TSF.
AVB retains a good relationship with his old employer, and was a guest of the club at their Europa League defeat to Manchester City last week.
However, he will have to work hard to persuade president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa to part with his stars, as the club look to maintain their position of power in the Primeira Liga under Vítor Pereira.
