Update: A day after Dennis te Kloese traveled to Tijuana to monitor Cristian Pavon as Boca played Xolos in a preseason friendly, CBS’ Roger Gonzalez has been told the Argentina winger is expected to join the Galaxy.

Huge if true.

It’s midnight in Southern California. Tuesday, July 9th is upon us and the MLS secondary transfer window of the 2019 season is now open. Running until August 7th, the window affords teams the ability to sign new players. As the league website explains, “Per FIFA regulations, MLS teams are able to request International Transfer Certificates (ITC) from players’ former clubs to complete signings, loans and transfer deals”.

A few deals have already been completed, with Columbus acquiring a young Costa Rican DP and Curacao goalkeeper Eloy Room, Carlos Fierro joining San Jose and Atlanta securing Emerson Hyndman from the Premier League.

The LA Galaxy have several positions in need of help, but only one name matters for the fans at the moment: Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon, who has been rumored for weeks to be coming to LA and is reportedly open to the move.

Another Argentine winger on the market is Yamil Asad, who thrived with Atlanta United and D.C. in two seasons and was recently released by Velez Sarsfield. MLS clubs are reportedly interested and he’d certainly be a quality pickup.

What do you think the Galaxy should do in this transfer market?
