With Ola Kamara on a plane heading to China, is there a potential replacement for the LA Galaxy on the way inside another plane?

Gazzetta dello Sport based journalist Nicolo Schira is reporting the Galaxy are closing in on a deal to bring the 32-year old striker to Los Angeles. Furthermore if the word of an Italian outlet wasn’t convincing enough, Rossi hopped on Instagram to post a cryptic snap on a plane himself with the caption “Destination” and an arrow pointing towards a bright sun. Think he might be referring to LA?

The New Jersey born forward has enjoyed a relatively successful career despite a history of injury troubles, scoring 54 times for Villarreal in a three-year spell and 16 times for Fiorentina in 33 appearances. Rossi recently suited up for Genoa, leaving the club in July 2018.

A quick striker, the 5’8” Rossi has the potential to form a formidable partnership with Zlatan should he manage to stay healthy.

What do you think of the rumor?

Update: Reports are now claiming Rossi is set to land in Los Angeles for a trial with LAFC. Interesting if true.
