The silly season for European teams may be over but for Major League Soccer clubs it is just getting started. Reports from South America today suggest that FC Dallas could be landing a new striker here soon. Andres "Manga" Escobar is rumored to be the player that could be Oscar Pareja's first signing as manager of FC Dallas.

En la operación, cerrada en la madrugada del miércoles, se acordó que el atacante de 22 años llegue al equipo de Texas con una opción de compra. Sus derechos siguen perteneciendo al Dínamo de Ucrania.

From the sound of it, FCD will get Esocbar on loan from Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv, who still own his rights.

The 22-year old has been on loan from Dynamo Kyiv for the last two seasons with the most recent loan to French first division club Evian. He originally played for Colombian side Deportivo Cali.

Escobar has been linked with MLS clubs in the past, back in 2011 he linked to both the Philadelphia Union and the Portland Timbers. He opted to stay with Deportivo Cali instead.
