The Olympic players who could emigrate to Europe

Several players from the Tri Olímpico have stood out with their performances and with this they feed the possibility of emigrating to European football

After the defeat against Brazil in the semifinals of the Tokyo 3020 Olympic Games, Jaime Lozano, coach of the Mexico Under-23 squad, expressed his desire that several of his players emigrate to Europe after the Asian tournament to increase quality of the Mexican National Team.

Because of Lozano’s dream, ESPN Digital It introduces you to Mexican players who have excelled in Japanese territory and could play in the Old Continent.

Jorge Sanchez

The Águilas del América player was one of the most prominent defensive elements of the Tri Olímpico during the Group Stage and his performances in Tokyo could be just what the full-back needed to emigrate to Europe this summer with Premier League clubs interested in their services, according to the GOAL site. At just 23 years old, Sánchez could have a great career in one of the best leagues in the world.

Luis Romo

The midfielder has been one of Cruz Azul’s best players in recent Liga MX tournaments and had an outstanding performance in the Olympic tournament, highlighting his two touchdowns. A few months ago, Romo revealed that he was followed by several European clubs, so before the current transfer window closes, he could receive a proposal that convinces him to leave Aztec football.

Francisco Cordova

With three goals, Córdova could end his participation in Tokyo 2020 as Mexico’s top scorer, a distinction that he currently shares with Henry Martin. The azulcrema footballer is seen as one of the greatest talents in America and according to A Bola and Mundo Deportivo, Córdova is followed by Benfica, Sevilla and Betis.

Uriel antuna

Of this list, Antuna is the only one who has European experience playing for FC Groningen in the Netherlands between 2017 and 2018, so his knowledge of football from the Old Continent could be a factor in his favor. At 23 years old, Uriel did not start as a starter in Tokyo but with his work he removed Diego Lainez’s position and became a key part of Lozano’s scheme since the commitment against South Africa.

Alexis Vega

For many Mexican fans, the Chivas footballer has been the most outstanding Tri player in the Asian tournament. With two goals in the competition, Alexis was key for Mexico to qualify for the quarterfinals and his future could be in Portuguese football with Porto following in his footsteps, according to the Lusitanian newspaper Record.
