FC Porto’s Jesus Corona has emerged as a potential transfer target for Chelsea, as per a report by the Mirror.
The highly-rated winger is being linked with a move away from the Primeira Liga after five seasons in Portugal.
Corona, who is 27 years old, is believed to be seen as a cheaper alternative to in-demand Borrusia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
Frank Lampard is expected to be a busy man over the coming months as he looks to strengthen his side and take advantage of being able to sign players, unlike his first summer in charge last year.
Corona is an experienced winger and would add more options and depth to the Blues’ attacking options for next season.
He joined Porto in August 2015 from FC Twente for a fee of €10.5 million and has since played 211 games, scoring 26 goals along the way. He helped the Portuguese giants win the league title two years ago.
Prior to his move to Estádio do Dragão, the Mexican international started his career in his native country with Monterray. He burst onto the scene there as a youngster before going on to win the Liga MX in 2010.
He switched to Europe in 2013 to join Eredivisie side FC Twente and spent three years in Holland before Porto snapped him up.
Corona now faces an uncertain future in Portugal with Chelsea being linked with a move. The fact he can play full-back as well as on the wing makes him an attractive proposition to the London club. He would add some exciting competition out wide to the likes of Pedro, Christian Pulisic, Willian and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
