These footballers have shone with their respective clubs, some even with the Mexican National Team
Several Mexican players could end up emigrating to Europe in 2023, as the talent they have shown in the Liga MX has drawn the attention of a number of European clubs.
Over the past few years, Mexican players have been making headway in the Old Continent and two have already completed moves to Spanish clubs during the winter transfer window: César Montes has joined Espanyol and Santiago Román who was signed by Real Oviedo, in the second tier of the Spanish league.
However, in Mexico other players are waiting for an opportunity after showcasing their talents at Qatar 2022. We take a look at some of those ones who could soon be on their way to Europe.

For the moment, he continues to be a member of the Rebaño Sagrado squad, and even played a few minutes with during the recent Sky Cup tournament.
The América defender is another Mexican player who will surely soon have an opportunity in European soccer. He has shone in Las Águilas under the guidance of Fernando Ortiz. The Azulcrema full-back has similar qualities to other players who have moved to play in the best football leagues in the world. He is currently laid low with a fractured rib injury.
Generally speaking, Mexican goalkeepers have not excelled in Europe, Tex-Tex has enough attributes to make the grade elsewhere. The Santos Laguna goalkeeper is one of the most reliable custodians in the Liga MX and although no firm offers have been confirmed, there was talk a few months ago that at least two clubs have him in sight
Another Santos Laguna player who also has a good chance of booking a ticket to the other side of the Atlantic. The 20-year-old has received an offer, reportedly from Turkish giants Galatasaray, but due to the low amount of money offered for him, the club would rather to wait until a more reasonable proposal comes in.
The Tuzos del Pachuca midfielder shone not only with the Hidalguenses during the recent Apertura, but also with Mexico at the Qatar World Cup. His strike against Saudi Arabia was among the 10 nominees for the Hyundai Goal of the Tournament award. Chávez is still waiting for a European club to give him the opportunity he needs to develop his talent further.
