According to Calcio Mercato, Mexican attacker Hirving Lozano is very close to being signed by Carlo Ancelotti and his team.

Mexican forward Hirving Lozano is a product of the Pachuca youth system in the Liga MX.

He debuted in 2014 for Los Tuzos and three years later he was traveling to the Netherlands to play for PSV in the Dutch Eredivisie.

And now, he is rumored to be wanted by Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Italian Lega Serie A side Napoli.

“It is a move that has looked on and off for nearly the entire summer but there now appears to be an acceleration towards a deal for Serie A giants Napoli to sign PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano,” a report by Calcio Mercato read.

“Lozano, also known as ‘Chucky’, first burst into the knowledge of many a football fan with his performances at the FIFA World Cup last summer with his native Mexico; including scoring a fantastic goal against holders Germany in the group stage.”

Lozano played all four games for Mexico during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“Lozano was being linked with all sorts of top teams last summer, most notably Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Manchester United all being considered interested parties,” Calcio Mercato added.

“However, Chucky remained in the Netherlands where he played another successful season with PSV.”

“According to what has been learned by CalcioMercato.com, Napoli is preparing their strategy to meet Lozano’s 42 million euro release clause,” they wrote.

“Their first option is a full-cash offer, which is what the Dutch side appear to prefer. The alternative is an offer spread across multiple years, perhaps with an increase in the overall sum via the fixed part or the addition of bonuses.”
