The Houston Dynamo have long been in the market to add a scoring punch, and after an unsuccessful stint with Spanish striker Koke, the team appears to have turned its attention to Honduran international Carlos Costly.

The Houston Chronicle reports that the club is in negotiations with Costly, who is out of contract after being released by Mexican club Atlas. According to The Chronicle, Costly's deal with the Dynamo would run through the end of the season with a club option to extend it through 2012.

Both coach Dom Kinnear and team president Chris Canetti told The Chronicle that the team is actively looking to sign the 29-year-old Costly, who scored three goals during this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup, all of which came in a 7-1 victory over Grenada. With rookie striker Will Bruin out for the next 4-to-6 weeks after surgery to repair a torn meniscus, Houston could certainly use the help up top.

What do you think about the potential move? Do you think Costly would succeed in Houston?
