Guillermo Ochoa, Mexico's hero in their 0-0 draw against Brazil, has become a target for as many as 20 clubs. 

Ochoa, who is available on a free transfer after reaching the end of his contract at Ajaccio, has become a bargain option for many of European clubs as his stock has rapidly risen, according to reports.

'KEEPER CAN BE SIGNED FOR FREE

His reputation is currently so high that Barcelona have enquired, according to his agent Jorge Berlanga, where the Mexican could possibly get his first taste of the Champions League.

Little known before his encounter with Neymar and Fred, the Mexican has plied his trade in before the Mexican and French leagues.

He was a cult hero at America, the biggest club in Mexico and become elevated to a a very high status, being cited for advertising campaigns and the like, drawing huge national attention until 2011.

This was largely due to his detractors who claimed his acrobatic style was purely for the cameras and that he was actually a liability, dividing the nation and stalling his national career.

It was at this point he decided to become the first Mexican stopper in Europe, but a drugs allegation during the 2011 Gold Cup saw the suitors back away, despite the fact the Mexican was found not guilty.

THIS WILL BE THE BIGGEST MOVE OF HIS CAREER

He then ended up at Ajaccio in France's Ligue 1, where he was their first choice, but it is likely that his next move will be by far his biggest, if his incredible form for Mexico continues.

The Premier League is also on the cards, as behind Barcelona, Arsenal and Liverpool are interested, after the Gunners lost Lukas Fabianski to Swansea and Pepe Reina is unlikely to play again at Liverpool.
