The 27-year-old Mexican winger Corona has two goals and 17 assists to his name this season for Porto and can also play as a wing-back, which is sure to encourage Chelsea to submit a bid for the player.

The Daily Star claim that Corona would be available for as low as £26m.

Elsewhere, the Blues have been urged by former Chelsea ace Frank Leboeuf to sign Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz instead of Philippe Coutinho according to comments the former Chelsea player made to ESPN FC.

The Sun suggest that Havertz is valued close to £100m and is in high demand, with Liverpool, Man Utd, Man City and Bayern Munich all also said to be interested in signing the 20-year-old attacker.
