Toronto FC is gearing up to make another big offseason splash. According to Spanish media, Toronto is working on a deal with La Liga side RCD Espanyol to sign Argentinian winger Pablo Piatti.

COPE’s Quique Iglesias recently reported that Piatti isn’t training with the team, as he is expecting a transfer to MLS.

Piatti rarely got the opportunity to feature this season and has only played two games for the club. 

Toronto FC’s general manager Ali Curtis recently said that the team is ready to spend big on a big name this offseason in order to remain one of the best teams in the league. The team has one designated player spot left open, which will likely be filled with Piatti, who certainly fit the description.

Pablo Piatti started his career in native Argentina with Estudiantes, where he established himself as an up-and-coming star. He made a move to Spain in 2008, where he played for Almeria and Valencia before joining Espanyol.

Piatti played a total of 94 games with Espanyol in all competitions, scoring 14 goals in the process. He also has one cap for Argentina national team.
