Wolves are reportedly eyeing a bargain move for Jesus Corona in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Corona impresses
Corona has come off of the back of a very good season at FC Porto, making no fewer than 16 goal contributions in total in 48 games over all competitions (Transfermarkt), a respectable average of a goal or an assist every three matches.
Should Wolves sign Corona?
The Mexico international was simply a menace in the Primeira Liga in particular, creating as many as 15 big chances for his teammates, while he also won five of his duels per game and averaged 2.3 key passes and 1.8 successful dribbles a match (Sofascore).
The Latest: Wolves eye Corona
He has reportedly told Porto that he would like to leave and has asked his agent to go out and find him a new club, and the Portuguese team are willing to sell given that he only has a year left on his current deal.
Corona’s release clause is going down from €30m (£25.9m) to just €20m (£17.3m) at the end of June, meaning that the Molineux faithful could potentially snap him up for a bargain fee.
The Verdict: Corona a good option
Even though the Midlands club currently have the likes of Adama Traore and Daniel Podence in their ranks as recognised wingers at the moment, it would do no harm whatsoever to add another one to the squad, especially if it is of the quality that Corona possesses.
A goal contribution every three games is arguably impressive, and could prove especially useful if Raul Jimenez finds himself injured for a period of time, such as in the 2020/21 season.
Nonetheless, the 28-year-old could well be available for a bargain price if WWFC wait until the end of June, which should encourage them more to go out and buy him.
