With Oscar Pareja moving to Club Tijuana, it looks like the former FC Dallas manager is looking to bring along a few familiar faces. ESPN Mexico is reporting that Walker Zimmerman could be signed by the team. The center back is currently out of contract with LAFC, who paid a total of $500,000 in various types of allocation money for him at the end of last year, and has been rumored to be looking to make a move overseas.

Last month it was reported that Zimmerman had interest from several leagues in Europe and was looking to make a move. That was despite LAFC general manager John Thorrington saying the team planned to keep Zimmerman.

Though he has only recently broken through with the national team, Zimmerman featured for the youth set up starting at the U-18 level. If he were to move abroad, Zimmerman would join Zack Steffen as another American heading to an international destination this off-season.
