From one Argentine to another, the New York Red Bulls look to be on the verge of adding a solid presence to its attack.

Argentine club Huracan released a statement on Saturday stating that winger Alejandro Romero Gamarra (aka El Kaku) had been sold to the Major League Soccer side for a whopping $6.25 million.
While an official announcement from the Red Bulls has yet to come down the pike, it seems like a matter of time until they have the 22-year-old’s signature.
The Red Bulls — who lost in the Eastern Conference semifinals in November — were looking to help bolster its attack ahead of the 2018 season.
The team has long been led by Bradley Wright-Phillips and his 100 career goals since joining the Red Bulls, but with the departure of Gonzalo Veron this offseason Jesse Marsch’s side is certainly lacking on the wing.
Gamarra has scored a goal and added three assists this season in the Primera Division de Argentina, with his soon-to-be-former club Huracan sitting in fifth place.Follow @MattReedFutbol
