Report: Several teams interested in trading for LA Galaxy's Joao Pedro


Several MLS teams are interested in trading for LA Galaxy midfielder Joao Pedro, according to Metro New York's Kristian Dyer.

Dyer reported on Monday that Pedro has drawn interest from “a couple of teams” in the trade market. The 24-year-old central midfielder was signed by the Galaxy from Portuguese club Vitoria in January using Targeted Allocation Money. He struggled through an up-and-down year with LA, recording one goal and two assists in 28 appearances as the Galaxy limped to the worst regular season in their history.

The Galaxy are also reportedly considering the possibility of moving forward Gyasi Zardes, according to a Dec. 1 report from Dyer. Meanwhile, veteran fullback Ashley Cole has expressed his interest in playing another season in LA.
