The LA Galaxy continues its roster renovation with a high profile loanee and a high profile surname from just down the road.

Yony Gonzalez is joining the MLS club on loan from Benfica, while free agent goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann is also heading to the Galaxy according to the LA Times.

Gonzalez, 26, scored nine times with five assists on loan to Brazilian powers Fluminese last year. The right wing moved to Benfica in January but has yet to appear for the Portuguese side.

Don’t expect to see Gonzalez right away, however, as he remains stuck in Brazil due to travel restrictions placed on the South American country.

The German-born Klinsmann, son of former USMNT coach Jurgen Klinsmann, is no stranger to California having played at the University of California after spending much of his youth career in the Golden State.

Klinsmann, 23, was with Hertha Berlin but stuck in the reserves before joining Swiss side St. Gallen last year. He’ll be behind David Bingham in Carson.
