It is no secret to anyone that the duo of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son is one of the best in the world, and ahead of the coming season, Spurs are trying to add a third attacking player to complement the two stars.
During the 2020 / 21 campaign, Son formed one of the most lethal pairings in Europe along with Kane, as the duo recorded 14 goal combinations, which is a record for a single Premier League season.
Many names have been said by media outlets, but the new managing director, Fabio Paratici is reportedly looking to sign Porto's winger and Mexican International, Jesús Manuel Corona.
'Tecatito', who can play either as a right winger or full-back, played a big role in Porto's UEFA Champions League quarter-final run last season.
“Jesus Corona is one of the best players in Portugal over the past few years. I would say he is the best player in the Portuguese league,” Portuguese journalist Sergio Krithinas said on The Transfer Window Podcast.
“He is a tremendous, skilful player who is really strong with both feet. He can play in every position in the attack except striker.
He could be a good player for a top team in England. If Tottenham sign him, they’re doing a great job.
Porto is a tough seller and Corona has one year left on his contract. His buyout clause increased automatically from €25m to €40m on July 15. Porto will make it tough for anyone who wants to buy him.”
Since arriving to Primeira Liga from Eredivisie's Twente in 2015, Corona has won six trophies with Porto, including two Portuguese league-titles, and was named as the 2019 / 2020 player of the season.
In six years at Portugal, 'El Tecate' has played 269 games across all competitions, recording 31 goals along with 68 assists and 41 yellow cards.
The Hermosillo native, who is worth 30,00 mill. € according to Transfermarkt, started his career with Liga MX's side, Club de Fútbol Monterrey.
Jesús Corona has competed in some important international events over the years, including the 2018 FIFA World Cup, 2012 FIFA Club World Cup, and multiple Champions League and Europa League knock-out stages.
The 28 year-old is under contract at Oporto until the summer of 2022.
He is currently playing the Gold Cup in the United States with the Mexican National Team.
