Chivas USA took a step toward upgrading their attacking options by turning to MLS' breeding ground for talent: Colombia.

Chivas signed 19-year-old Colombian striker Jose Erick Correa from club Boyaca Chico FC to augment a strike force that has managed just four goals in six games.  

In Correa, Chivas get an in-form forward. He scored two goals over the weekend in Boyaca Chico's win over Cucuta Deportivo and his six goals in the club's 12 games are good for third-most in Colombia's top flight. His form earned him a call-up by coach Jose Pekerman to a brief Colombian national team camp for younger, domestic-based players this week, as well.
