Marcelo Flores, A Rising Talent From Arsenal, Poised To Join Tigres

According to respected journalist Fabrizio Romano, it appears that 19-year-old midfielder Marcelo Flores is on his way out of Arsenal. The talented youngster is set to join Mexican club Tigres on a permanent transfer deal, pending official confirmation.

Reportedly, both Arsenal and Tigres have reached an agreement for Flores’ transfer. Now, all that remains is for the necessary paperwork to be completed. Once that’s done, Flores will make the journey to Tigres to undergo a medical examination and put pen to paper on a four-year contract.

It seems that Flores wasn’t able to make his mark at Arsenal’s youth academy, as he never managed to make his debut for the first team. As a result, the promising Mexican talent is seeking a more significant role outside of European football.

Last season, Flores spent time on loan at Oviedo, where he made 15 appearances, with just eight of those being starts. This season, he has played four matches for Arsenal U-21, but has yet to be named in the starting lineup.
