Jesus Tecatito Corona Surging in Milan Offensive Shortlist

Jesus Corona is gaining momentum in the never-ending Milan search for a new attacker. The Rossoneri reached out to Porto to inquire about his price tag. The two sides are not distant on his evaluation, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Dragoes want €13M for the 28-year-old winger because they have to give Twente 40 percent of the sum. Milan are ready to place a €10M bid. They could quickly close the gap if they decided that he is really the guy they want for the role, the outlets adds. The fact that his deal expires in a year facilitates the deal.

Instead, they consider Pablo Sarabia too expensive at the moment. The Spaniard will become a fringe option given PSG’s star-studded reinforcement campaign. However, he fared well in the Euro and has a few suitors. Moreover, he is under contract until 2024 and earns €4M per year.

Neither of the two players is pure no.10, but Milan would not mind purchasing a versatile contributor. Coach Stefano Pioli could use a 4-4-2 scheme more in 2021-2022, deploying Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic together. The recent arrival of Pietro Pellegri, who put pen-to-paper earlier today, adds further depth up front.

The Rossoneri have also joined the race for Junior Messias, who is being pursued by a plethora of Serie A teams. The Crotone forward would easily pick them over the rest of the bunch. However, the front office is internally debating whether he would be the right choice, as they see him more as a complementary piece.
