According to a report from Portuguese media outlet A Bola, alleged West Ham and Wolves target Jesus Corona has convinced Porto’s president Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa to cut his £45 million price-tag down to just £25 million.

A Bola reported two months ago that the Hammers and Wolves are both keen on signing the winger turned right-back.
The Mexico international has been in sensational form for Porto this season. He has racked up four goals and an incredible 17 assists in 44 games for the Portuguese giants from right-back (Transfermarkt).
And A Bola suggest that both West Ham and Wolves could pick up Corona for just £25 million now.
And despite the financial woes in the game caused by the global health crisis, that still could represent great value for either West Ham or Wolves.
David Moyes certainly needs to bring a new right-back to the London Stadium this summer.
Wolves’ need for that kind of addition isn’t quite as pressing. But even so, Nuno Espirito Santo would surely love to have the 27-year-old Mexican at Molineux.
Corona is a fleet-footed, marauding full-back. If we’re being honest, he is probably better suited to Wolves’ system than he is West Ham’s.
He would surely be more tempted to move to the Molineux than the London Stadium.
And as things stand, who could blame him.
If the Hammers stay up, however, then who knows? They might be able to convince the Mexico international to move to east London.
But West Ham fans won’t be holding out much hope with David Sullivan and David Gold at the helm.
