U.S. national team midfielder Ricardo Clark looks to be the latest American to parlay Confederations Cup success into a transfer move, with Italian side Livorno reportedly ready to complete a deal for the Houston Dynamo midfielder.

According to Corriere di Livorno, Clark and Livorno are expected to finalize a deal in the coming days after Livorno and the Houston Dynamo reached an agreement on a transfer.

Clark enjoyed a strong Confederations Cup after starting it out in controversial fashion with a questionable red card in the opening match against Italy, but his performance against Spain surely turned heads and Livorno has apparently stepped up with a legitimate offer.

Livorno has also been linked with Landon Donovan, but that move has lost steam in recent days, in no small part to the Italian club balking at MLS transfer demands for the U.S. national team star.

What do you think of Clark making a move to Italy? Can you see him doing well in Serie A? Happy to see another American moving to a big European league?
