Arsenal in race to sign Jesus Corona from Porto

Arsenal is among the clubs trying to sign Porto winger Jesus Corona this summer.

Arsenal is interested in signing Porto’s Jesus Corona as the club look to strengthen their right-wing options.

Corona is attracting major interest among clubs across Europe as Fiorentina and Sevilla are also reported to be among the clubs that are interested in signing the right-winger who can also play as a right-wing back. The 28-year old was a key player in the Porto side that reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season before eventually losing to Chelsea.

Corona’s current deal with Porto expires next summer and his contract is reported to have a £21.4million (€25m) release clause which is active until mid-July. This will prove to be advantageous to Arsenal especially in a pandemic impacted market where the Gunners need to sell players before they buy.

Willian looks set to leave Arsenal on a permanent transfer this summer after failing to live up to expectations upon his arrival from Chelsea last summer on a free transfer. Hector Bellerin has also been linked with a move away from London with Villareal, Real Betis and Atletico Madrid said to be interested in the right-back. Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his options on the right flank of his squad as Corona can fill in comfortably as a right-winger and right-wing back.

Corona scored three goals and providing 13 assists in 48 appearances in all competitions for Porto last season.
