After a rough first season at Club Tijuana, Herculez Gomez is on the move with the hopes of earning more playing time.
Gomez is currently undergoing medicals with Tigres UANL and is set to join the club ahead of its Apertura campaign in Liga MX. There is no word yet on whether Gomez is signing with Tigres via a loan or an outright transfer, but he will reunite with fellow American and former Pachuca teammate Jose Torres at the club.
The 32-year-old forward did not enjoy the type of debut season with Xolos that he surely envisioned when he signed with them last summer. Gomez made just 10 starts in 25 appearances across all competitions for Tijuana, and all three of his goals for the club came in CONCACAF Champions League play.
Tigres is the latest Liga MX club Gomez will suit up for. Aside from playing for Tijuana and Pachuca, the well-traveled striker has also represented Santos Laguna, Estudiantes Tecos and Puebla since leaving MLS back in 2009.
In addition to Gomez, Tigres will reportedly be acquiring FC Dallas and Under-20 Mexico goalkeeper Richard Sanchez.
What do you think of Gomez joining Tigres UANL? Do you see him thriving there? Wishing an MLS club would just make him an offer that he couldn’t refuse?
