Hirving Lozano announced himself to the world, scoring the goal for Mexico against Germany which saw the defending champions suffer a 1-0 defeat in their first fixture of the 2018 World Cup.
The 22-year-old joined PSV Eindhoven from Pachuca last summer and has impressed in his debut season, scoring 17 goals and registering eight assists in 29 league games. His form for club and country hasn’tt gone unnoticed.
Today’s edition of L’Equipe claims Lozano snubbed an approach from Manchester United in order to join PSV in 2017. He has continued to attract interest from the Premier League with Everton believed to be following the winger, and directly mentioned by the French newspaper.
Apart from the Merseyside club, AS Roma and Juventus are also said to be in the race for the Mexican international. It’s said Pachuca sports director Marco Garcés recently admitted their former player is worth at least €50m in the transfer market.
When PSV sold Davinson Sanchez to Tottenham Hotspur for €40m last summer, his sale was the record fee the Dutch club earned from a transfer. If they decide to sell Lozano, L’Equipe think he’ll beat the current record.
A few days ago, Mexican newspaper Record reported Lozano is available for €35m, which would be a more attractive figure for Everton.
From the club’s named, Everton would stand a reasonable chance, if only because Juventus are being linked with so many players that only a fraction of the claims can be correct.
