Chelsea have identified Porto winger Jesus Corona as an alternative in case they cannot sign Jadon Sancho.
The England star is high on their wish list, but Manchester United remain the favourites to sign the Borussia Dortmund star, despite the disruption caused to the transfer market by the coronavirus crisis.
That has led to the London club considering other alternatives, and one man that has been identified is Mexican winger Corona.
The 27 year old Mexican, who has played 42 times for his country, moved to Porto from Dutch side Twente in 2015, and has since played more than 200 times for them in all competitions, scoring 26 goals for the Portuguese side.
He has several advantages to his name, one being that he can play as a wing-back as well, and another being that he his asking price is £26 million, a quarter of what Sancho is expected to cost.
