Liverpool and Arsenal Chase After Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano

After FIFA named the Mexican international among the top ten young players of the year, two EPL powerhouses have shown interest in signing him.

It’s hardly a surprise for anyone that FIFA named Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano as one of the top ten young soccer players of the year. Having scored 11 goals in 16 matches playing for Dutch club PSV Eindhoven, the 22 year-old Mexican international is off to a blistering start to his European career.

Other young talents acknowledged by FIFA on the aforementioned list are:

Dominic Solanke - England

Federico Valverde - Uruguay

Joshua Sargent - United States

Jean-Kevin Augustin - France

Lewis Cook - England 

León Goretzka - Germany

Hirving Lozano - Mexico

Philip Foden – England

Rhian Brewster - England

Jann-Fiete Arp - Germany

Jadon Sancho - England

Moreover, Lozano has scored seven times in 24 fixtures playing for the Mexico National Team. ‘Chucky’ even scored the goal that officially qualified Mexico to the World Cup during the international playoffs.

Rumor has it big European clubs are targeting Lozano as a reinforcement for the next transfer window. The Daily Star recently reported Liverpool and Arsenal are both on the race to purchase Lozano.

Jürgen Klopp and Arsène Wenger are looking to bring in some fresh talent as Alexis Sanchez and Philippe Coutinho look likely to leave Arsenal and Liverpool, respectively, in the near future.

A winger, Lozano has the speed, skills, goal-scoring efficiency and youth any major club in the world looks for. Securing his talent at a young age could very well mean selling him a few seasons later for even more stratospheric amounts. 

And even if they didn’t sell him, the would have acquired one of the most desired rising stars in contemporary soccer.

At 22, Hirving Lozano is a highly attractive bet that could turn into an even more valuable asset. This June, PSV signed Lozano coming from Liga MX side Pachuca for a Mexican soccer record amount of €24 Million.

Only a few months later, Arsenal and Liverpool are said to be willing to offer around €50 Million for him, which is double what PSV payed last summer.

PSV fans have taken a liking for Lozano and are sure to be heartbroken if he leaves the Netherlands after only a few months of shining at the Eredivisie.

Who would you rather see managing Chucky: Klopp or Wenger?
