Who will coach El Tri long-term? Are Chivas losing a rising star? Could Lozano make a big winter move? Goal summarizes the transfer talk


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.


Chivas agrees to Ruiz deal


Chivas have completed their capture of teenage Queretaro attacker Marcel Ruiz, according to Milenio.

The Gallos Blancos requested and will receive $8 million for the playmaker. The Guadalajara side, which signs only Mexican players, also is bringing defender Hiram Mier from Queretaro and has its eyes on Monterrey center back Cesar Montes and Toluca forward Alexis Vega.


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.


Chivas bringing in Mier


Queretaro defender Hiram Mier will join Chivas in the winter transfer window, according to MedioTiempo .

With Jair Pereira set to leave in the offseason, the club needs defensive reinforcements. Monterrey defender Cesar Montes also is set to be a target this winter for the club, which signs only Mexican players.


Martino in line for four-year deal


Tata Martino will be announced as Mexico national team manager once Atlanta United is eliminated from the playoffs, according to  Univision Deportes .

Martino is set to put pen to paper on a deal that would keep him in the position through the 2022 World Cup and earn him $8.8 million.


Mohamed not in Mexico manager picture


Despite recently parting ways with Celta de Vigo, former Monterrey and Club America manager Antonio Mohamed is not currently a candidate for the Mexico job, according to ESPN Mexico .

The coach won Liga MX titles with America and Club Tijuana and has his fans in the FMF but the process is too far along with other candidates to bring him back into the picture.


Pereira bidding Chivas farewell?


Jair Pereira has posted a message on Instagram that many are interpreting as a farewell to Chivas.

"Colors I'll remember my whole life. Always moving forward," the center back posted Sunday along with a picture of himself. The center back reportedly is set to be out of contract and is unable to reach new terms with Chivas. The 32-year-old has been with the Guadalajara club since the 2014 Clausura.


FMF speaking with Sanchez Flores


Mexico federation president Yon de Luisa met manager Quiqui Sanchez Flores in London about the men's national team coaching vacancy, according to  ESPN Spain .

The president may be willing to offer the Mexico job to Sanchez Flores, who coached six La Liga teams and also oversaw Watford in his coaching career, or may line him up as a back-up should Tata Martino reject the FMF's offer.


Chivas still shopping La Chofis


Chivas are open to moving Javier "La Chofis" Lopez during the offseason in exchange for a defender, according to  Record   and ESPN Deportes.

Queretaro manager Rafa Puente Jr., however, isn't sure hope Lopez would fit in his system and is reluctant to welcome the player in a swap deal for Hiram Mier. For that reason, Chivas may work out a different deal for Mier but are talking with Monterrey on a move that would send Lopez north.


Galaxy courting Te Kloese


The LA Galaxy are interested in bringing Dennis te Kloese, Mexico Director of National Teams, to Southern California to be the Head of Soccer Operations, according to  MLSSoccer.com

The Dutch director previously oversaw Mexico's youth national teams but has been working with the senior sides since August of 2017. He also has played a key role in El Tri's search for its next manager.


Guzman has European interest


Victor Guzman has been the subject of interest both from clubs based in Europe and from other Mexican teams, Pachuca president Jesus Martinez said .

The midfielder continues to play well both with Tuzos and the national team and could follow Hirving Lozano and Erick Gutierrez out the door with the president saying he'd prefer to have the player keep growing at Pachuca before moving across the pond rather than join up with a regional rival.
