Wolves set to hijack Chelsea move for 27-year-old Porto star

By | July 9, 2020

Wolverhampton Wanderers are allegedly considering a summer offer for Porto attacker and Chelsea target Jesus Corona.

The 27-year-old star has been in impressive form for his Portuguese side during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring four times and contributing 18 assists in 46 games in all competitions.

Chelsea have recently been mentioned with the Mexico international, who is believed to have a €30m (£27m) exit clause inserted into his current contract at the Estadio do Dragao.

The west Londoners are piecing together their plans for the next transfer market. Several targets are believed to have been identified by Frank Lampard as the manager seeks to further bolster his ranks at Stamford Bridge.

The 27-year-old North American could prove to be a useful option for the Blues as he is capable of operating at right-back.

However, according to A Bola, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are also firmly in the hunt for the right-sided forward and could launch an offer during this summer’s transfer market.

He has scored four times and registered 11 assists in 29 Liga NOS appearances this term.

The former Monterrey ace has also been capped on 42 occasions by Mexico’s national team, scoring seven goals, in addition to featuring at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Meanwhile, N’Golo Kante has reportedly picked up a hamstring problem and could miss Chelsea’s PL trip to Crystal Palace.

The France star trudged out of Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Watford, and could now sit out Tuesday’s trip to Selhurst Park.

Olivier Giroud, Ross Barkley and Willian all found the net as the Blues eased past the club, to jump back into the league’s Top-4 and shake off Wednesday’s frustrating 3-2 loss at West Ham United.

His injury proved perhaps the sole blow in Chelsea’s comfortable Saturday win at Stamford Bridge, leaving Frank sweating on the 29-year-old’s fitness.
