Wolves shift focus to Porto's Jesus Corona

Porto winger Jesus Corona has been linked with Wolves over the last few days, with the Mexican's form attracting Nuno Espirito Santo's attention.

Wolves are yet to make an offer for Corona, yet are closely monitoring his games at Porto.

The Porto winger could make for a fantastic signing for Wolves, with the 27-year-old having a magnificent season so far, scoring four goals and providing 11 assists.

Naturally, Corona is a right-back, but he also has the capabilities to play as a right winger as well, also being capable of playing at left wing.

Corona's versatility could be very helpful for Nuno, especially since Wolves play with a three at the back system, making Corona's defensive capabilities even more crucial.

Nuno has worked with the Mexican before during their time together at Porto, being a very important player for the club during Nuno's 2016/17 season at the club.

The Mexican has managed an average of 2.2 dribbles per game in Liga NOS, as well as 1.8 key passes per game.

Defensively, Corona has been solid as well, making 1.4 interceptions and 1.3 tackles per game in Liga NOS, a very respectable set of statistics.

The idea of playing in the Premier League could be very tempting for Corona, especially if Wolves are able to secure Europa League football, or maybe even Champions League football for next season.
