Monterrey chairman Duilio Davino has confirmed the club’s interest in PSV Eindhoven striker Luuk de Jong.

Reports in Mexico claimed that Monterrey were in advanced talks to sign De Jong, but these rumours were debunked by Eindhoven’s Dagblad. Monterrey are interested but no move is imminent.

This has been backed up by Monterrey chairman Duilio Davino who confirms the club’s interest in De Jong, but no deal is close.

Davino told Televisa Deportes, “We are interested in attracting a player of that calibre. “It is a lie that we are well advanced, but we are interested and sit down to negotiate.”

De Jong currently has a contract with PSV until 2021 but the club are trying to tie him down to a new deal.
