Who will coach El Tri long-term? Is Hector Herrera bound for Serie A? Could Chicharito make a big winter move? Goal summarizes the transfer talk

Martino will be announced in January

A verbal agreement exists between Tata Martino and the FMF for the Argentine to take over as men's national team coach, but he won't be announced until January, according to  Fox Deportes .

Once he has signed a contract, it will be a four-year deal. However, with Mexico putting its eyes on the 2026 World Cup and Martino hoping for time to work, the deal may include an option for a four-year extension.

Grupo Pachuca bringing Everton stars to Leon

Grupo Pachuca, which controls Pachuca, Leon and Chilean side Everton, is moving several top players from South America to Leon, according to AM .

Left back Dillon Zuniga, a 22-year-old Chilean who has played with La Roja's youth teams, is set to join the club. Midfielder Ivan Orozco, a Mexican who spent the last three years in Chile, already has been announced as a new signing for Las Panzas Verdes.

America working to bring in Boselli

Club America has emerged as a potential destination for Leon forward Mauro Boselli, according to  AM .

The 33-year-old said in November that he would leave the club he has been at since 2013. Reportedly, he was offered a year-long extension for a lower salary and turned down the offer with Boselli hopeful to get a MLS deal. However, a switch to play for Las Aguilas could see Boselli earn a higher wage.

Te Kloese already working with Galaxy

Dennis te Kloese already is working with the LA Galaxy ahead of an official announcement Monday, according to the  LA Times .

The Dutchman will serve as the club's general manager after a successful term with the Mexican federation. He oversaw the youth national teams before a promotion last year to Director of National Teams.

Sosa set to leave Tigres

Ismael Sosa is preparing to exit from Tigres and has a number of suitors, according to  Reforma .

Sosa and Juninho could leave the club this offseason, with Tigres not planning an overhaul of the side despite missing out on the Liga MX semifinals. Sosa has interest from teams in Mexico, MLS and Saudi Arabia - though  Multimedios   reports using the Argentine winger as currency in a swap with Pachuca currently is the strongest possibility.

Chivas want to bring in Talavera

With an offseason overhaul already underway, Chivas manager Jose Cardozo is setting his eyes on Toluca goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera, according to  ESPN Deportes .

While the Red Devils may be willing to let the 36-year-old go, the deal could hit a snag because of the transfer fee with Chivas already agreeing to terms with Hiram Mier and Tony Alfaro and still working to bring in Dieter Villalpando, Marcel Ruiz and Alexis Vega.

Tigres after national team rising star

After Tuca Ferretti's interim stint with the Mexico national team, the manager wants to bring Pachuca's Erick Aguirre to the club, according to  Univision Deportes .

The versatile 21-year-old could arrive as soon as this winter, with Tigres likely to use him as a central midfielder instead of the left-wing spot he's played with Tuzos.

Atleti one of Guzman's suitors

Atletico Madrid has taken an interest in Pachuca and Mexico midfielder Victor Guzman, according to Mundo Deportivo .  

Pachuca president Jesus Martinez said  last month that there is interest from a number of European teams, and in addition to the Spanish club, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and PSV look to be on that list.

Chicharito on Besiktas' list

Besiktas sent a board member to London and have Mexico forward Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez on its shortlist of winter targets, according to  ESPNFC .

The club is yet to make a formal offer to West Ham United but could do so if the 30-year-old is open to the idea of playing in Turkey. His high wages, however, may be a barrier the Istanbul side is unable to overcome.

Herrera could land at Juve

Juventus is considering a move for Porto midfielder Hector Herrera, according to  A Bola .

The midfielder's contract is up at the end of the season, and he's also been linked to Inter and Roma as he looks for a deal that would earn him up to €300,000 per month.
