Eduardo Aguirre is one of the names of the moment in the Mexican soccer environment. The Santos Laguna striker has had an effective performance with the Olympic Tri in Tokyo 2020 and adds two goals in the fair, despite having few minutes. The 23-year-old footballer arouses the interest of some Liga MX clubs. His name has been strongly linked to the Chivas de Guadalajara, a team that is looking for nine after the departure of José Juan Macías.
The ‘Mudo’ had an exceptional closing with the Warriors and showed a high level in the league. With Santos he was one step away from lifting the Guardians 2021 title. In the midst of all the rumors about his possible departure from the Torreón club, Aguirre stoked the fire and revealed the link that links him with the Sacred Rebaño.
In statements made to the Guerrero podcast, in April 2020, Edu Aguirre indicated that when he was younger, and he worked as a goalkeeper, he went to Chivas, since his example to follow was Oswaldo Sánchez. Once he signed with the Lagunero team, the ‘Mudo’ changed his hobby and began to support Santos Laguna.
“I started as a goalkeeper, that’s why I went to Santos. I was a big fan of Oswaldo Sánchez, as he was in Chivas, because he was going to Chivas. And then when he went to Santos, the love for this club began.”

The striker originally from San Pedro, Coahuila, rang out with great force to become a new Guadalajara player. According to the Transfermarkt portal, his letter is valued at $ 1.1 million. However, it is very likely that the Santos Laguna board will seek a higher price given the interest and need of the rojiblancos.
