MLS trio linked with transfer for Monterrey forward


A trio of MLS suitors have emerged as potential landing spots for Monterrey forward Aké Arnaud Loba, according to a report from Mexico-based reporter Felipe Galindo.

Per Galindo, expansion side Austin FC, Houston Dynamo FC and the Portland Timbers are the three MLS teams that are interested in Loba's services.

Loba has been with Rayados since 2020, scoring six goals in 21 appearances, but is reportedly aiming to make a move where he could garner more playing time. The 23-year-old hails from the Ivory Coast, where he began his professional career with SO de l'Armée in 2016 and has made four appearances for his country's U-20 side, scoring one goal.

He's also done a stint in the Peruvian top flight with Universidad de San Martín, where he put up 18 goals in 32 appearances, and a loan spell in Liga MX with Querétaro before he joined Monterrey — a goal-scoring track record that makes him a potentially intriguing fit in MLS.
