The Chicago Fire seem set to make their next major move of the offseason. This week, reports emerged that the club will sign Ignacio Aliseda from Argentina Superliga side Defensa y Justicia. Few details of the deal itself have yet to be confirmed, but rumor has it that the transfer fee for the player is around $3 million, which is a significant outlay.
Like most, I had never heard of Aliseda before this news broke out publicly. However, just because he is a relatively unknown player does not mean he will not be a potentially excellent acquisition.
