Chelsea allegedly identify Porto winger Jesus Corona as an ideal cut-price alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho.

Chelsea have reportedly identified Porto's Jesus Corona as an ideal alternative to Jadon Sancho.

Corona, who is capable of playing as a wide midfielder or full-back, has registered two goals and 17 assists across all competitions during an impressive 2019-20 campaign with the Primeira Liga outfit.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is supposedly still keen on a deal for Borussia Dortmund's Sancho, but Manchester United are said to be in pole position for the 20-year-old's signature.

As a result, Chelsea are eyeing up other options ahead of the summer transfer window, and according to the Daily Star, Corona is firmly on Lampard's radar.

The report suggests that the 27-year-old could be available for £26m, and the Blues are likely to be in the market for wingers with Willian and Pedro both expected to depart Stamford Bridge.

Corona has chalked up 26 goals in 211 appearances for Porto since 2015, and the Mexico international's current deal with the Portuguese giants runs until 2022.
