Liga MX clubs have been busy with big-name players coming and going from the league, but with Mexico's Copa América campaign concluding earlier than expected, focus now shifts back to domestic football and the transfer market. Several high-profile moves are poised to reshape the landscape of Liga MX. Here are five significant transfers set to be completed:

Cruz Azul is set to bolster their defensive line with the addition of Jorge Sánchez. The right-back has been a key figure for the Mexican national team, known for his pace and defensive prowess. The defender is coming off a loan spell with Porto after an initial European move to Ajax. Looking for more stability, this transfer is expected to bring experience to Cruz Azul's backline as they aim to improve their league standing in the upcoming season.

2. Julián Quiñones to Al-Qadisiyah

In a surprising move, Julián Quiñones is set to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Qadisiyah. The Mexican forward has been a standout performer in Liga MX, particularly with his tenure at Atlas, where his goal-scoring ability and physical presence made him a fan favourite. The striker played all three games for Mexico in the Copa América group stages but failed to make a significant impact. This move marks a significant step in his career, leaving Liga MX where he won six titles to provide himself with a new challenge in a different footballing environment.

3. Érick Sánchez to Club América

Club América announced the signature of Érick Sánchez from Pachuca. The dynamic midfielder has been a revelation, showcasing his versatility and playmaking skills. His ability to control the tempo of the game and contribute both defensively and offensively makes him a valuable addition to the squad. The midfielder was involved in Mexico's Copa América campaign but played a total of 12 minutes across the three games. América fans will be excited to see how Sánchez fits into their tactical setup and helps push the team toward championship contention.

4. Luis Romo to Cruz Azul

Romo (29), started all three of Mexico's Copa América games and has chosen Los Azules over Club América with a deal being agreed between the two clubs.
