As reported by Futbol Total, Tigres’ board is about to receive a formal offer from Brazilian giants SC Corinthians to buy Colombian winger Luis Quiñones. Versatile, as he can play on both sides being left footed, the 29-year-old played a stellar match against Palmeiras in the historic semifinal victory in the FIFA Club World Cup.

According to Transfermarkt, Quiñones has a market price of $4.8 million, which could be raised a bit more if we consider the winger has extended his contract with the club until June 2023.
