Uruguay National Team winger and attacking midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro is currently with Boca Juniors, but that could be changing just as he looks to head to the United States for the Copa America Cenetario. Lodeiro, recently injured and healed, is now connected with a move from Boca Juniors to MLS.
Yesterday, it seemed that the destination was the Montreal Impact. Today, the word is that Montreal is out.
Selon lui, l'Impact de Montréal N'EST PAS le club qui tente d'acquérir ses services. Il s'agirait d'un club US. 2/2— Arcadio Marcuzzi (@_marcuzzi) May 18, 2016
Previously one outlet connected the multi-faceted attacker to Seattle Sounders.
El volante de Boca Juniors Nicolás Lodeiro es pretendido por el Seattle Sounders. El conjunto de la MLS ofrece U$S8M #MercadoDePases— Mercado Uruguaio (@MercadoUruguaio) May 17, 2016
Nicolas played in the 2010 World Cup with former Sounder Alvaro Fernandez. Seattle is one of the MLS teams that can and has paid transfer fees, though 8 million dollars would be hefty. They have the DP slot and cap space. This is the type of player and rumor that makes sense.
In the past few years Lodeiro transitioned from being a classic CAM/#10 to a creative winger. The Sounders are in need of more creativity at either role in their 4-2-1-3. Now, 27 Lodeiro only makes the team a touch younger, if signed. He would take minutes from Ivanschitz, Valdez and Gomez.
With Boca Juniors in league and Copa Libertadores play he has seven goals and six assists in 2,871 minutes.
