MLS rumors: Alexandre Lacazette to the LA Galaxy

The LA Galaxy are looking for a new striker as Javier Hernandez has now departed the club. A replacement could be found in a former France and Arsenal player.

Matteo Moretto has reported that, "The Los Angeles Galaxy are looking for a forward for January. They seriously considered Alvaro Morata but the Spaniard has no intention of leaving Atletico mid-season. Now attention has focused on Alexandre Lacazette, of Olympique Lyon."

Lacazette is now 32 but still captains Lyon and has scored three goals in nine Ligue 1 appearances this season. It would be difficult to take the French club's captain away from them in January.

Nicolas Lodeiro leaving the Seattle Sounders

Nicolas Lodeiro is a Seattle Sounders legend who has made over 200 appearances for the club. In his time with the Sounders, he won the MLS Cup twice and the CONCACAF Champions League.

Unfortunately, last night his Seattle side suffered a 1-0 loss to LAFC in the MLS Cup, with Lodiero coming on as a substitute. It has now been revealed that this was the Uruguayan's final game with the club.

Jaime Ojeda has revealed that, "Lodeiro is leaving Seattle Sounders and will not continue in 2024."
