Sevilla close to signing Jesus Corona from Porto and Gonzalo Montiel from River Plate

Sevilla are in advanced talks to sign Mexican footballer Jesus Corona from Porto according to Fabrizio Romano. Details will be sorted as soon as possible, with a final fee of €12m expected. Gonzalo Montiel is also expected to join Sevilla from River Plate.

Monchi has been vocal in his desire to freshen up Sevilla’s squad. Bryan Gil was sold to Tottenham Hotspur in exchange for €25m plus Erik Lamela, while Jules Kounde is on the market. Julen Lopetegui is keen to build upon Sevilla’s fourth-place finish in La Liga last season, a campaign that saw them reach the semi-final of the Copa del Rey and the last 16 of the Champions League; they lost to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
