Monterrey midfielder Walter Ayovi says he "would love" to play in MLS
Herculez Gomez may not be going anywhere anytime soon, but another man who's given MLS sides plenty of trouble in CONCACAF Champions League play certainly has some interest in coming to the league.
With two months remaining on his contract and the possibility of a renewal looking unlikely, the future of Monterrey midfielder and Ecuador national team captain Walter Ayoví is uncertain, to say the least. But he may just be casting his eye north.
"In May, my contract with [Monterrey] expires and I still don't know what my future holds," Ayoví told FutbolMLS.com's Tiro Libre podcast. "I know something good will come of it, and we'll have to wait and see, and I have to keep working in the same way and hope that a good possibility presents itself."
Among those possibilities could be MLS, a league that the versatile 33-year-old has become familiar with over his four-and-a-half years in Mexico, given Monterrey's status as perennial contenders in the CONCACAF Champions League.
"Well, yes, the truth is I would love [to play in MLS]," the player revealed. "We'll see. It's a possibility that I've always had there, and hopefully that can happen."
