Reported Wolves target Alexis Vega is in talks with clubs from around European, according to his father.
Vega has made two appearances for Mexico at the World Cup so, and impressed each time.
The forward has started against Poland and Argentina, and looked quite lively in the final third for El Tri.
Of course at the moment, Raul Jimenez is nowhere near fit for the national team. He’s appeared a couple of times off the bench.
With him lacking that match sharpness, it is important for the other Mexico forwards to really step up.
Although no one has scored yet for Tata Martino’s side, Vega has looked good.
Journalists have been really impressed with him so far, with TUDN journalist Andres Vaca even describing him as ‘another level’.
This World Cup could potentially be the catalyst for him to leave his club Guadalajara and go on to bigger and better things.
According to Vega’s father Ernesto, the 25-year-old is already in contact with some clubs about a potential move.
He said (ESPN): “He needs to leave the Mexican league, he is ready to compete in any league. There are already talks with teams, they do not specify, they have not yet materialised, but hopefully first [he] will have the opportunity to fulfil that dream of going to Europe.”
Vega has spent his whole career in Mexico so far, starting out at Deportivo Toluca before moving to Guadalajara in 2019.

So it looks like Vega might not be at Guadalajara for very much longer.
He has looked really good in Qatar so far, and it’s no surprise multiple clubs are on his tail already.
Reforma have reported that the list of options for Vega right now are Wolves, Sevilla, Real Betis and PSV Eindhoven. These four clubs are all looking at Vega right now (via El10.com).
It remains to be seen if Wolves will make a push for Jimenez’s teammate in January.
Surely, it would be a good idea if one of Hwang Hee-chan or Adama Traore left Molineux.
Hwang has been linked with Borussia Monchengladbach, while Traore’s contract with Wolves expires next summer.
