Where is Raul Jimenez’s future? Is Hirving Lozano bound for Serie A? What’s next for Hector Herrera? Goal summarizes the transfer talk
America may part ways with Menez
Club America is considering parting ways with midfielder Jeremy Menez this offseason, according to Esto.
The Frenchman still has six months remaining on his contract with Las Aguilas but his recovery from an ACL injury was followed up with another injury, and America is considering setting the player loose early to free up an international place.
Herrera’s mind made up to head to Spain
Hector Herrera has made up his mind and will sign with Atletico Madrid this summer, according to O Jogo .
The Mexico midfielder is set to spurn Inter after the Italian club’s long courtship, opting instead to play in La Liga. Herrera’s Porto contract expires this summer, allowing him to move on a free.
Bundesliga club interested in Santos defender
Werder Bremen is keeping a close eye on Santos Laguna right back Jose Abella, according to Televisa .
The Bundesliga side is interested in the defender, who could command a transfer fee of 3 million euros, though it’s also looking at other options in the Americas.
Wolves will trigger Jimenez clause
Wolves are set to exercise the buy option for Raul Jimenez and will pay 38 million euros to sign the Mexican forward on a permanent deal, according to Portuguese newspaper Record .
The sale would make Jimenez, who has 12 goals in the Premier League on loan with Wolves this season, the most valuable player sold by Benfica.
PSV watching Alvarez, dropped Pizarro interest
Club America and Mexico international Edson Alvarez is on PSV’s radar and could sign with the club in the summer, according to Eindhoven Dagblad reporter Rik Elfrink .
Able to play center back, defensive midfielder or even right back, the versatile 21-year-old also has been the target of interest from Celtic and Ajax but PSV has a long history of signing Mexican players.
The Dutch reporter noted, however, that the interest that previously existed for Rodolfo Pizarro has died out since the former Chivas playmaker made his move north to Monterrey.
La Maquina looking at Fernandez
Cruz Azul is looking to get ahead of others in the race to sign Brian Fernandez, according to Record .
Necaxa is open to selling the Argentine in the summer but already are bumping up the starting point for offers from $10 million to $12 million. The 24-year-old has eight goals so far this season, putting him second in Liga MX.
FMF pursuing LA Galaxy’s Alvarez
Efrain Alvarez is in line for a Mexico call-up, perhaps as soon as this summer’s Gold Cup, according to ESPN .
However, the United States remains an option for the 16-year-old, who made his MLS debut and had an assist for the LA Galaxy in 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire.
Chivas ready to play hardball for Macias
Chivas are in no rush to sell forward Jose Juan Macias to Leon, according to Record .
Currently on loan with Leon, Macias has four goals in five matches. However, Chivas have put a price of $15 million on the 19-year-old to join Leon full-time after the season.
The high clause was inserted in part because of Grupo Pachuca, which owns Leon and Pachuca, driving a hard bargain and demanding $8 million for goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota in the 2018 Clausura.
Cruz Azul considering move for Milan midfielder
Cruz Azul is looking to bring in AC Milan midfielder Jose Mauri in the summer, according to Sport Mediaset .
The 22-year-old has played in only four Serie A matches this season and is set to leave the club on a free after the season concludes.

Lozano’s agent, Napoli have agreement
Hirving Lozano’s agent, Mina Raiola, already has given Napoli the thumbs up for a move for Lozano, according to Il Mattino .
But while the Serie A side has a deal on the table to the representative’s liking, they’re still $6 million away from meeting PSV’s $40 million asking price after tabling a bid of $34 million.
This winter, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Napoli would target the winger in the next transfer window. The 23-year-old PSV player has stood out since moving abroad from Pachuca and garnered attention from a number of top clubs.
