Wolves target Jesus Corona may well become easier to sign at the end of the month.
According to a report from Portuguese outlet CM, Corona is entering the final year of his Porto contract.
That apparently means that his release clause will fall to 20 million euros (£17.1 million).
Corona is 28 now, and has apparently already decided he wants to move on this summer.
There will apparently be no shortage of suitors.
The report claims that Chelsea and Everton are also keen on the Mexican international.
If Nuno Espirito Santo is appointed at Goodison Park, it would add some extra spice to that transfer battle.
Perhaps if Chelsea got Corona, they’d cool their reported interest in Adama Traore after winning the Champions League.
Further afield, Sevilla and Fiorentina are also said to be keen. And with the asking price dropping, there could be a scramble for his signature.
Corona would be an experienced signing
Wolves have signed players with potential in recent times, but sometimes it’s worth investing in a player for the here and now.
Around £17 million would still be a significant investment for a player of Corona’s age, with little chance of maintaining resale value.
Beating the Champions of Europe to sign a player would be a coup.
But the first thing Wolves need to do is confirm their new manager. If it is Bruno Lage, as expected, then signings need to fit his system.
