Ochoa wants big club move

Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has made it clear that he plans to leave his current employers for a top European club.

Having established himself as one of the most talented keepers in the Americas during his time at Club America, the Mexican surprised everyone when he decided to accept an offer from Ajaccio two years ago.

He has since done nothing to harm his reputation, having performed really well in France’s top flight, but the 28-year-old believes the time has come for him to leave the Corsican side.

“My goal remains the same: to play for a great team that compete in the Champions League and win trophies,” Ochoa explained to L’Equipe.

He is hoping to leave Ajaccio before the summer transfer window closes, although he could decide to remain in France as he needs to spend two more years in the country in order to gain citizenship.

Ochoa would, however, consider leaving French Ligue 1 if a top European club were to come calling this summer.

“Would it be worth to leave France and lose the benefit of my years here? If it was to join a great team, then yes.”

Guillermo Ochoa has made 77 Ligue 1 appearances during the two years at Ajaccio, while he has no less than 52 Mexico caps to his name.
