Ifunanyachi Achara - Greg Vanney - Toronto FC

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Signing


Toronto FC have signed winger Ifunanyachi Achara, the club announced Friday. Achara was selected with the No. 25 overall selection in the 2020 MLS SuperDraft.


Achara, 22, has enjoyed a stellar preseason, with three goals in four matches. The Nigeria native spent four seasons at Georgetown University, where he captained his side to a NCAA National Championship this fall. He had six goals and five assists in 15 appearances this year.


“Achara has had a terrific preseason. He works hard, is dynamic offensively and has a great way about him where he fits very well within the group,” TFC GM Ali Curtis said in a statement. “We’re excited about adding him to the team as we feel he has a lot of potential.”

Achara joins a long list of wingers on the senior roster. TFC open their season on February 29 against the San Jose Earthquakes.
