The Houston Dynamo has made signing a forward one of its biggest off-season priorities and the former MLS Cup champions are still in play for what would be a truly impressive signing.
Houston is still in pursuit of Morelia striker Luis Angel Landin, who Morelia is in the process of trying to sell rather than loan out. If Morelia cannot find a taker for the former Mexican Under-23 international, the Dynamo could wind up landing Landin on loan.
"We worked through the weekend with Morelia officials, Landin's representatives and the league to try and get a better idea of whether this thing can happen," Dynamo chief operating officer Chris Canetti told SBI on Monday. "The talks are there, the talks are serious, whether or not Morelia wants to is what we’re waiting to see."
As of today, Morelia had yet to secure a deal to sell Landin, and if it cannot, the club could turn to Houston, which Landin has expressed strong interest in playing for.
What do you think of this development? Think Landin could be a star in MLS? Would his arrival make the loss of DeRosario easier to take? Is Landin the exact kind of player MLS teams need to be targeting? Still don't think Houston will pull it off?
