Arsenal among the teams that want to sign versatile Porto star

Arsenal has joined Sevilla and Fiorentina in becoming interested in a move for FC Porto winger, Jesus Corona.

The Mexican is one of the top stars at the Portuguese side and he impressed for them as they reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League last season.

He plays on the right-wing and can play as a defender or a winger.

Arsenal will probably lose Hector Bellerin this summer as the Spaniard considers a change of scenery after 10 years at the club.

The Gunners remain keen on signing several top players to bolster their squad and the Daily Mail says Corona is the latest name on their transfer wishlist.

The report says he has just one season left on his current Porto contract and he is very likely to leave before next season starts.

His present release clause stands at £21.4 million and it will expire around mid-July.

Arsenal will have to see off serious competition to sign him, but the lure of the Premier League and living in London might help them to win the race for his signature.

    While Arsenal burns.
    The question to be asked is how did Brighton & Hove Albion manage to acquire players of the standard of Yves Bissouma, Ben White and Lamptey? Arsenal reportedly (and in the case of Bissouma should) now wants to buy them for inflated prices, yet was no where to be seen, when these players were unknown.
    To be fair Arsenal has developed or bought excellent young players like Smith Rowe, Saka, Willock, Mavropanos, Guendouzi and Saliba, but in some cases gives them no opportunity and then will probably sell them at bargain basement prices.
    Over many years Arsenal’s scouting of promising players has been very poor. The Hale End Academy has produced some excellent young players, yet few have been developed to take their places in the first team. Some notable examples like Gnabry and Reis Adelaide were sold for a pittance or left on frees to flower elsewhere.
    It is reported that over the last 8 years Arsenal has made money on 3 transfers, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Iwobi being prime examples.
    This poor financial and player management is draining the life from this Club.

      You’ve asked a question then answered it! The players were simply unknown! This applies to hundreds of players around the world. Players like Bissouma and Ben White apparently take time to show their ‘true worth’ as they are not strangers to the Premier League.

    At the moment I have counted 23 players ‘linked’ with Arsenal. The only one we know for sure is Emi Buendia, which shows how crap Arteta is as an attraction. Arteta is talentless, Edu is totally inept and sadly at the moment the team are not much better. We are ££££ed.
    Ben White is totally who we do not need, Yves Bissouma is exactly who we do need.

    1. Sylva says:

      Our defence didn’t do bad last season what is the rational of trying to buy White above €40,000. What we need is a creative & Defensive midfielders + a backup left full back for Thieney.

      Arteta should buy what will make the team better to solve last season’s defficiecies.
      The fans are watching him closely and expectation very high on him.

    This summer has become a CIRCUS of links to this, that………

    Transfer news is simply make believe!
    Arteta will make up permanently average, top level ambitious coach required to take us back to the top.
    He can’t spot a player. If he buys Ramsdale after letting Emi go.
    And Ben White, good but 45M? Behave! We need a workaholic striker, like Watkins as our midfield don’t play to Aubameyangs strengths.

  6. Isaac says:

    Bissouma is all we needed from Brighton,
    Ben White is as good as William Saliba
