Toronto FC has ended its bid for Argentine forward Maximiliano Urruti.
But manager Ryan Nelsen says an announcement is expected soon on another Argentine. The MLS club has not identified who that is but it is widely believed to be midfielder Matias Laba.
Urruti has been linked with Toronto for weeks but club officials appeared to have been frustrated in their dealings with the South American side, which is undergoing financial issues.
Nelsen also confirmed interest in veteran Bolton Wanderers forward Kevin Davies.
British reports have linked the 36-year-old Davies to Toronto, although he likely has other options.
Nelsen, who is friends with Davies, says any MLS coach would be happy to have Davies on their roster.
