Toronto FC close to filling third designated player spot as Argentine Pablo Piatti undergoes medical

Toronto FC appears to have found its new designated player in Argentine winger/forward Pablo Piatti.

A source, granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the subject, said the 30-year-old Piatti was in town undergoing medical tests.

The MLS club has been looking for a third designated player to bolster its attack. Room for another marquee player came open in December when captain Michael Bradley accepted a new deal using targeted allocation money.

Spanish playmaker Alejandro Pozuelo and U.S. international striker Jozy Altidore are Toronto’s current designated players.

Piatti, who played in Spain for Barcelona-based Espanyol, is no stranger to Toronto.
