Transfers: Loza-no Deal…Yet

With the Mexican transfer window closing for the winter in a day or two, ESPN FC reported earlier today there were rumors Pachuca winger Hirving Lozano received bids of around & more than 20 million euros to move to unspecified European teams, but he won’t be moved now. However a summer move is seen as “very probable”. According to Pachuca sporting director Marco Garces, in addition to money figures Lozano’s wife is also 7 months pregnany, he’d be going to clubs with seasons already in progress and with the transfer window closing tomorrow or Wednesday Pachuca wouldn’t get anything in return. Not to mention Loczano would “have to be like (Diego) Maradona” for the Tuzos to even get the 20 million. That may be asking way too much now given Lozano is only 21. If Lozano leaves in the summer he can do a full preseason with the new club and Pachuca would be able to get a replacement. Lozano leads Liga MX with 3 goals in the Clausura 2017 tournament, but all those goals came on a hat trick in round 1 and he is scoreless since.
