Toronto FC reportedly close to deal that swaps Yeferson Soteldo for Carlos Salcedo


Toronto FC are close to making another blockbuster transfer after landing Italy’s Lorenzo Insigne. 

According to the Athletic’s Sam Stejskal, the Canadian club are close to a deal that would see  Yeferson Soteldo transferred to Tigres UANL in exchange for defender Carlos Salcedo.

The transfer would not see any money exchanged, but merely a transaction of players. Essentially, a swap of  Soteldo for Salcedo.

Should the deal be finalized, Salcedo would occupy a Designated Player spot on Toronto’s roster, alongside Insigne, Jozy Altidore and Alejandro Pozuelo. Toronto FC would have to offload one player before the Italian forward arrives in the summer. 

Salcedo is no stranger to Major League Soccer, having kicked off his career with Western Conference side Real Salt Lake in 2013. He later went on to feature for Chivas de Guadalajara before making stops at ACF Fiorentina and Eintracht Frankfurt.
