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

Sporting News — customerservice@sportingnews.com (Sporting News)

Araujo nearing La Liga move


Santos Laguna center back Nestor Araujo is nearing a move to Celta de Vigo, according to Fox Deportes.

The only thing between him and a move is the medical, which likely will focus on Araujo's knee. Continuing effects from a March knee injury kept him out of the World Cup.

New Celta manager Antonio Mohamed reportedly wanted to bring Cesar Montes, whom he managed at Monterrey, to the club but after Rayados' asking price turned Celta away, he has turned his attention to Araujo.


Ospina potential replacement for Guzman at Tigres


Tigres goalkeeper Nahuel Guzman continues to draw closer to Boca Juniors, a move that could set off a domino effect for goalkeepers, according to MedioTiempo.

The Argentine may be headed home, though he said in a news conference this week he's not keeping close track on transfer talks. Tigres would turn to David Ospina of Arsenal, or Racing's Juan Musso as potential replacements.


Ochoa out at Standard


Standard Liege is lining up a move for a new starting goalkeeper with Guillermo Ochoa set to leave Belgium, according to La Derniere Heure.

Ochoa reportedly has interest both in Spain, where he played with Malaga and Granada, and Italy.


Lyon looking at Hector Herrera


Hector Herrera has drawn interest from Ligue 1 side Lyon, according to Le10Sport.

The Baja California native just captained Porto to a championship but has been linked with a move elsewhere. While Lyon is yet to make a formal offer for the midfielder, the club has reached out to begin the process.


Ben Arfa has offer from Tigres


Tigres have an offer on the table for Hatem Ben Arfa, according to L'Equipe.

The former Newcastle and PSG winger is out of contract after spending most of his time the past two years out of the squad in Paris. While Tigres' offer may be his best at the moment, he's hoping to find a way to play in European competition next season.


Spanish clubs have Lainez interest


Villarreal, Betis and Espanyol scouted Club America midfielder Diego Lainez at the Toulon Tournament, according to Marca.

Already rumored to have interest from French clubs, the 18-year-old has made no secret that he'd like to move to Europe. America, however, reportedly is willing to hold out for a $25 million fee.


Toluca makes Negredo bid


Toluca has made a bid to bring Spanish forward Alvaro Negredo to Mexico, according to Record.

Currently with Besiktas in Turkey, Toluca reportedly has offered $3.5 million for the 32-year-old. That should be enough to pry away the former Real Madrid and Manchester City man, but his salary near $5 million annually is currently the roadblock.
