Porto have reportedly told Chelsea that they would need to pay around £27m in order to land the signature of Jesus Corona this summer.

The Blues have already agreed deals to sign Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner from Ajax and RB Leipzig respectively but manager Frank Lampard is still said to be keen on bolstering the attack.

Bayer Leverkusen's Kai Havertz is obviously is one the top names on the wishlist but Lampard is also looking at alternative options to strengthen the attacking department.

According to A Bola, the Blues are one of the clubs in the running to sign Corona from Porto but he won't be allowed to leave the Primeira Liga side unless the £27m release clause in his contract is triggered.

Corona is a right-winger by trade and he has been in good form for Porto this term with four goals and 10 assists in the Portuguese top-flight.

The Blues may have recently reinforced their attack, but they are bracing for the departures of Pedro and Willian on free transfers next month.
