Expansion team San Diego FC, which is set to join Major League Soccer in 2025, is working to reach a deal with Mexican forward Hirving “Chucky” Lozano, The Athletic reported on Monday.

Per the report, San Diego FC would pay a transfer fee of approximately $12 million to PSV Eindhoven for the 28-year-old Mexico City native. Lozano is in his second season with the Dutch club, which is running away with the championship in the Eredivisie, the Netherlands’ top league.

Lozano got his start with Pachuca in Mexico’s Liga MX, scoring 31 goals across 120 appearances from 2014-17.

He then moved to PSV, where he banged in 34 goals in 60 matches from 2017-19, prompting a move to Napoli in Italy’s Serie A. He helped the Naples club capture the league championship last season, ending a 33-season title drought.

In 120 matches with Napoli, Lozano scored 23 goals before returning to PSV before the start of the current season.

Lozano has six goals and three assists in 21 matches (16 starts) in 2023-24.

A mainstay with the Mexican national team, Lozano has appeared in 70 matches for his country, scoring 18 goals. His lone career World Cup goal gave Mexico a 1-0 win over Germany on June 17, 2018, in Moscow.

San Diego FC currently have three players under contract: 17-year-old U.S. goalie Duran Ferree, plus two Danish midfielders, Marcus Ingvartsen and Jeppe Tverskov. The latter are currently on loan with Denmark’s FC Nordsjaelland, which shares the same ownership with the incoming MLS club.
