Former 'El Tri' striker Kikin Fonseca eyes MLS move

KikinFonseca (

The list of foreign players expressing interest in signing with Major League Soccer is growing by the way, and now you can add another familiar name to the list.

Former Mexican international Francisco "Kikin" Fonseca is seeking an MLS contract, sources close to Fonseca told SBI on Tuesday.

The 31-year old forward/midfielder made 43 appearances with the Mexican national team, but his star faded after an inconsistent three-year stint with Tigres.

Fonseca is currently a free agent, with a lawsuit filed against Tigres for unpaid wages blocking him from signing with Mexican clubs. Fonseca had a deal with Mexican club Atlante held up by his lawsuit.

Fonseca is prepared to play in MLS and isn't seeking Designated Player money, but the question now is whether a team will take a chance on a striker who hasn't really been a major impact player since leaving Cruz Azul for Europe five years ago.

What do you think of Fonseca? Would you want your team to sign him? Think he could help an MLS team?
