One of the most-rumored targets of MLS is back in the transfer speculation news.
Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder, who has been linked to MLS on countless occasions, has interest from expansion club LAFC, per AD in the Netherlands.
The report states Sneijder’s agent has flown to Los Angeles to meet with officials from LAFC.
Sneijder is currently under contract with Nice in Ligue 1, but he has fallen out of favor with the staff at Nice over formation changes, per the report. Despite the potential interest, Sneijder isn’t currently fit, as he’s been ruled out until the end of 2017 with an injury.
The 33-year-old Dutch international has played five games for Nice since joining during the summer transfer window. He spent the last four-and-a-half seasons with Galatasaray in Turkey, where he was a consistent starter and provided the club with 35 goals.
Signing someone like Sneijder, who has played 132 games for the Netherlands, might be risky at this point in his career, but he’s proven he can still make an impact at the club level in Europe.
