Report- Everton linked with Porto winger Jesus Corona

Everton are reported to be in the hunt for a player who once turned down a move to Barcelona as they couldn’t immediately offer him first-team football, and who “wants to reach the highest level possible”.

The Toffees are one of several clubs linked with highly-rated Porto winger Jesus Corona, according to Portuguese outlet A Bola.

As well as Everton, the likes of West Ham, Inter Milan, Roma, Sevilla, Valencia and Schalke are all said to be eyeing the 27-year-old Mexico international.

Corona joined Porto in 2015 from Dutch outfit FC Twente on a four-year deal for €10.5million (around £9million) and has made 211 appearances, registering 26 goals and 51 assists.

This season, the attacker has played 41 times in all competitions and, along with two goals, has claimed an impressive 17 assists.

The report claims that Corona has a buyout clause of €50million (around £44million) and that Porto want the entire amount in his clause despite their need to move players on due to FFP regulations.
