Marcelo Flores Joins Tigres on Permanent Deal 3

Arsenal youngster Marcelo Flores has joined Mexican side Tigres on a permanent deal. The 19-year-old midfielder joined Arsenal’s academy in 2019 and made 15 appearances for the club’s under-23 team. He also made three appearances for the Mexico national team.

Flores was expected to make a breakthrough into Arsenal’s first team this season, but he has fallen behind other young players in the pecking order. He has also been linked with a move to other European clubs, but he has opted to return to Mexico to join Tigres.

Tigres are one of the most successful clubs in Mexico, having won the Liga MX title seven times. They are also the current holders of the CONCACAF Champions League. Flores will be hoping to win silverware with Tigres and establish himself as a regular in the Mexico national team.

The transfer is a blow to Arsenal, who have lost two young players in the past week. Nicolas Pépé has also left the club to join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr. Arsenal are still looking to strengthen their squad this summer, but they will need to find players who are ready to make an immediate impact.

Flores’ move to Tigres is a good opportunity for him to play regular football and develop his career. He is a talented player with a lot of potential, and he will be hoping to make a big impact in Mexico.

Here are some additional details about the transfer:

  • The transfer fee is reported to be around £2 million.
  • Flores has signed a four-year contract with Tigres.
  • He will be eligible to play for Tigres in the upcoming CONCACAF Champions League.
  • Flores is the latest in a long line of Mexican players to join Tigres. Other notable Mexican players who have played for Tigres include André-Pierre Gignac, Javier Aquino, and Carlos Salcido.
