Report: 28-year-old connected with odd Leeds move has chosen his next club and been offered a £91k-a-week contract

According to the Italian tabloid Gazzetta Dello Sport, Napoli winger Hirving Lozano has selected his next club despite suggestions that Leeds United were interested, with the Mexican deciding to join MLS champions LAFC this summer.

Lozano, 28, is nearing the end of his contract. Despite appearing 41 times for Napoli previous season, the Serie A champions were eager to get rid of him. Leeds, along with Stoke and Everton, have held Lozano negotiations, according to W Deportes.

According to El Portal Deportivo, Everton made an offer for Lozano, but the winger was unimpressed by the Toffees, given their recent struggles with relegation. He desired to compete for titles.

Leeds has always appeared implausible, and this has now been demonstrated. According to GDS, he is expected to join Giorgio Chiellini’s LAFC, where he will nearly completely replace Gareth Bale after he retires. A few details need to be worked out.

According to GDS, LAFC are proposing £12.9 million for Lozano, while Napoli are asking £17.2 million – although there is optimism that a cost can be agreed upon. Lozano is poised to fly to America on Napoli’s orders and sign a three-year contract worth £91k per week.

Hirving Lozano has chosen his next club, despite suggestions that Leeds were interested in signing him.
Lozano was never going to be signed by Leeds. The only way he could have moved was if Leeds were in the Premier League and a loan deal was on the table. His contract with Napoli expires in June, so that was out of the question.

A permanent move to Everton seemed more likely, and if the Toffees had gone for the Mexico star, it could have diminished their interest in Willy Gnonto. Instead, Lozano will join LAFC in the MLS this summer.
