Govea nearing Belgium return


Omar Govea is set to sign a deal to join Royal Antwerp, according to Marca.

The midfielder was involved in several national team camps last season while on loan with Royal Excel Mouscron. While local media reports linked him with a return to that club, the San Luis Potosi native is heading to Antwerp where he'll look for Europa League minutes. Govea currently is still a Porto player, though it's unclear if he figures in their future plans.


America may move matches


Club America is evaluating the quality of the field at the Estadio Azteca and may move future home matches, according to Record .

The field has been in poor condition since the start of the season, and with Cruz Azul also playing at the Azteca this season it has taken a heavy amount of wear and tear. Club America's women's team already has moved their matches out of the facility, but it's still set to host five games in the next 15 days between the two men's teams' league and cup commitments.


Reyes hoping for late Premier League move


Diego Reyes still is looking to complete a move to the Premier League, according to  Marca .

Currently a free agent, the closing of the transfer window won't affect Reyes who has had interest from Newcastle and another English club. If a deal doesn't get done in England, Turkish clubs Besiktas and Fenerbahce would like to sign the defender.


Turkish club has offer on table for Moreno


Mexico center back Hector Moreno may be on the move once again. Galatasaray has presented the Real Sociedad with a formal offer for the 30-year-old, according to Futbol Arena .

Moreno had been in talks with the Chicago Fire, according to  The Athletic but no deal was completed before the transfer deadline.


Ochoa to Napoli done deal


Napoli has all but completed a move for Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, according to  Record .

The Serie A side's new boss Carlo Ancelotti still wants an experienced goalkeeper, and the El Tri No.1 is ready for a Serie A switch. Standard Liege is, however, requesting the shot-stopper stay for a Champions League match against Ajax, which would not cup-tie the keeper for the competition since it comes in the play-off round.


Monaco reaching out to Gignac


Andre-Pierre Gignac may return to France this summer after being contacted by Monaco, according to  France Football.

The Ligue 1 side would try to convince Gignac to return closer to home after playing with Tigres since 2015. His services would be needed only if Radamel Falcao leaves the club, with "El Tigre" considering a move to China or to AC Milan.


Lokomotiv wants to bring Reyes to Moscow


Diego Reyes has a pair of suitors in Russia, though it is uncertain if either club can actually afford the Mexico defender, according to Sport Express .

FC Krasnodar is interested in bolstering its central defense but is losing hope of signing Reyes because of his price tag. Lokomotiv made a concrete offer, but Reyes' team, including agent Matias Bunge, has informed the Moscow club it will take more to sign the player.
