Impressive two games at World Cup result in transfer interest from Emirates Stadium and Anfield.
English Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool are set to make formal offers for Mexican international goalie Guillermo Ochoa, reports the Daily Express.
The 28 year-old has run down his contract with Ligue 1 side AC Ajaccio, and has indicated that he wants to play in the Champions League.
Ochoa has been phenomenal in Mexico’s two World Cup games against Cameroon and Brazil so far, and pulled off a couple of stunning saves against the hosts on Tuesday to give his side a valuable point.
Ochoa has said that he is open to offers from anywhere, but that he does prefer to stay in France after having fully adapted to Ligue 1.
Speaking about his plans for the future, Ochoa said, “My priority is to stay in France, but I am open to any propositions. I have improved in the last three years, most notably in handling the pace of games. Champions League to be sure of my level.”
Arsenal and Liverpool will not have it easy in persuading the shot stopper to move to the Premier League as Ligue 1’s cash rich giants AS Monaco are also believed to be on his case, and could easily beat the English clubs to the free agent’s signing by offering him high, tax free wages.
