As usual, the world of Mexican soccer got a jump on the European transfer window earlier this month, when dozens of players traded sides in the Mexican league's (LMF) so-called draft. But the times when the only Mexicans on the move could be found at home are long gone. The real action in terms of transfers for El Tri national teamers on the move is set to kick off next week, when the European window opens July 1.

Several top Mexican players are likely to change teams, but there should also be strong demand for a number of domestic-based young players, particularly those set to show at the Olympics in London this summer. Before the talk of transfers for those prospects heats up, some veterans already in Europe will probably be on the lookout for improved situations.

Here are the five Mexican national teamers most likely to be on the move within Europe this summer:
