Erick Torres is further advanced than compatriot Javier Hernandez was at the same age.

“El Cubo” (the cube) established himself in the Guadalajara first team as an 18-year-old and quickly hit the goal trail - the opener in a 3-0 win against fierce rivals America further endearing him to supporters.

More of an all-round player than former Guadalajara striker Hernandez, Torres is adept at holding the ball up and building up play from deeper positions. He may lack the physicality of the Manchester United player, but has all the qualities to be a top striker.

Torres has been linked with Deportivo La Coruna, PSV Eindhoven and Manchester United.
