In the past few days, the team reportedly has been interested in two defensive midfielders, Jonathan Gonzalez of Monterrey and Sebastian Perez of Boca Juniors, and striker Erick Torres of Tijuana.
Eales didn’t comment on any of the players, but said this when asked if the team had the space within its salary budget to sign a potentially impactful player: “With our salary cap, we have got potential space. There are always ways we can be creative. It’s difficult in a salary-cap situation. With a bit of ingenuity we might be able to conjure something up.”
