Expansion side LAFC could be moving the number one overall pick if the offer is right, and according to MLSSoccer.com, there are plenty of deals being offered.

People use the term untouchable and off limits and all the rest of it, but the reality is there is no such thing in our world,” LAFC general manager John Thorrington said in the report. “So it just depends. And we are absolutely comfortable that if we make that pick we’ll be ecstatic with it, and therefore it would need to be something better than that to tempt us to trade it.”
LAFC has the first pick in Friday’s draft with the LA Galaxy second and D.C. United third.
