COMMERCE CITY, Colo.— The Colorado Rapids made a third addition to their attack in as many days, signing attacking midfielder Braian “Brian” Galván on Thursday.
The 19-year-old Argentinian winger will join Colorado at the start of the secondary transfer window in July as a young designated player.
“Braian is a highly touted prospect whose development we’ve been monitoring for some time now,” Rapids executive vice president and GM Padraig Smith said in a statement. “He’s a fast, skillful and talented player who has already made his professional debut and has been a part of the Argentine youth national team system. We see great potential in him and couldn’t be more thrilled to have him join our club.”
Galván joins Colorado from Argentine first division side Club Atlético Colón, where he made eight appearances over three seasons, scoring one goal. Galvan debuted professionally at the age of 17.
A native of San Miguel de Tucumán, Galván has spent time with both the Argentina U-20 as well as the senior team, where he was called up ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
Earlier in the week, Colorado announced the additions of midfielders Nicolas Benezet and Younes Namli as new attacking options under head coach Robin Fraser, who enters his first full season with the Rapids.
