Report: Unnamed MLS club makes $11 million offer for young Romanian

Florinel Coman - celebrating - 2017


An unnamed MLS club has made an offer of $11 million to acquire 21-year-old winger Florinel Coman from Romanian side FCSB, according to a report from Romanian outlet Digi Sport.

Former Romanian international Lita Dumitru, who works as a youth coach in the Atlanta area, told the Romanian outlet he was in his home country with an American entrepreneur and that an offer had reached Coman's agent, Ioan Becali, who is the cousin of FCSB owner Gigi Becali.

Coman was previously linked to New York City FC at the same price by Romanian journalist Emanuel Rosu in October.

The Cityzens would be a logical landing spot for Coman, who could join countryman Alexandru Mitrita on NYCFC's roster. 

Coman has 20 goals in 67 appearances with FCSB in Romania's Liga 1 and has also scored four times in UEFA Europa League play. Between FCSB and previous club Viitorul, he already has 111 first-team league appearances after making his debut during the 2014-15 season.
