Liga MX transfer news: The latest rumors and chisme in Mexican soccer

Sporting News — (Sporting News)

America may move matches

Club America is evaluating the quality of the field at the Estadio Azteca and may move future home matches, according to Record .

The field has been in poor condition since the start of the season, and with Cruz Azul also playing at the Azteca this season it has taken a heavy amount of wear and tear. Club America's women's team already has moved their matches out of the facility, but it's still set to host five games in the next 15 days between the two men's teams' league and cup commitments.

Reyes hoping for late Premier League move

Diego Reyes still is looking to complete a move to the Premier League, according to  Marca .

Currently a free agent, the closing of the transfer window won't affect Reyes who has had interest from Newcastle and another English club. If a deal doesn't get done in England, Turkish clubs Besiktas and Fenerbahce would like to sign the defender.

Turkish club has offer on table for Moreno

Mexico center back Hector Moreno may be on the move once again. Galatasaray has presented the Real Sociedad with a formal offer for the 30-year-old, according to Futbol Arena .

Moreno had been in talks with the Chicago Fire, according to  The Athletic but no deal was completed before the transfer deadline.

Alanis could return to Chivas

Chivas would be willing to welcome back former center back Oswaldo Alanis, according to Fox Deportes .

Alanis left the Guadalajara club this offseason for Getafe but the La Liga side's new sporting director said this week that they're looking to move Alanis to another team with an excess of defenders.

Alanis is yet to play a single match in Europe but could be tempted to return to Mexico with Chivas getting ready for a Club World Cup run and in need of help at the back. So far, the center back appears reluctant to return to a club with which he was in a contract dispute less than a year ago.

Ochoa to Napoi done deal

Napoli has all but completed a move for Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, according to  Record .

The Serie A side's new boss Carlo Ancelotti still wants an experienced goalkeeper, and the El Tri No.1 is ready for a Serie A switch. Standard Liege is, however, requesting the shot-stopper stay for a Champions League match against Ajax, which would not cup-tie the keeper for the competition since it comes in the play-off round.

Monaco reaching out to Gignac

Andre-Pierre Gignac may return to France this summer after being contacted by Monaco, according to  France Football.

The Ligue 1 side would try to convince Gignac to return closer to home after playing with Tigres since 2015. His services would be needed only if Radamel Falcao leaves the club, with "El Tigre" considering a move to China or to AC Milan.

Lokomotiv wants to bring Reyes to Moscow

Diego Reyes has a pair of suitors in Russia, though it is uncertain if either club can actually afford the Mexico defender, according to Sport Express .

FC Krasnodar is interested in bolstering its central defense but is losing hope of signing Reyes because of his price tag. Lokomotiv made a concrete offer, but Reyes' team, including agent Matias Bunge, has informed the Moscow club it will take more to sign the player.

Inter planning Herrera move

Inter is hoping to bring Hector Herrera to Milan this summer, according to  Gazzetta dello Sport .

Herrera's agent, Matias Bunge, reportedly has told the Nerrazzuri his client would join the team if his €40 million (£36m/$47m) release clause is met. The issue for Inter is moving Joao Mario. The Portuguese midfielder doesn't figure in Luciano Spalletti's plans and his sale would fund the move but talks have stalled.

Herrera, 28, captained Porto to a league title last season and has one year left on his contract with the Dragons.
