It’s no lie to say that Hirving “Chucky” Lozano is one of the best Mexican players in Europe, something he has proven since joining Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven and then with Serie A side Napoli, where he has played for the past three years, although he might be on the move once the season is over.

Lozano’s stint with the Azzurri has been full of ups and downs, as he hasn’t found the regularity that he expected thanks to the constant injuries he suffers when playing for Mexico National Team, added to the rotation of coaches that Napoli has had since he arrived.
But the lack of trust that Luciano Spalletti, Napoli’s current coach, has on him, hasn’t affected his performances, even if he has started only 18 games out of the 28 that he’s been on the roster -he also has missed seven games-, as he’s usually one of the most threatening players of the Azzurri when he’s on the pitch.
His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed by other teams, and now that Spalletti is set on parting ways with him, teams from La Liga and Premier League have started to following closely the 26-year-old right-winger, as he might become the steal of the transfer window if Napoli puts him transferable.
