Toronto FC has actively offered Yeferson Soteldo to other clubs, 90min can reveal.
The creative Venezuelan moved to Canada from Santos only in April 2021. But despite a strong individual season with four goals and six assists in 26 games for a team from Toronto that fought near the foot of the Eastern Conference table, the move has not worked out on it. at all.
Reports of Soteldo’s accident in Toronto – on and off the pitch – have created an unfortunate partial account of his debut in the MLS season.
TFC is currently strongly linked to Napoli and Italy winger Lorenzo Insigne. Waking the Reds Michael Singh tweeted on Tuesday that the two parties had agreed on terms, with Insigne planning to move to Toronto this summer.

90min understands that Insigne’s representatives are still waiting for further offers around Europe with Inter Milan and Tottenham still interested, but it is unlikely that anyone will be willing to match the generous terms offered by Toronto.
In order for the Reds to facilitate a deal for Insigne, who will be the highest paid player in MLS history, they must move on to one of their existing designated players (DP).
Soteldo has recently been linked with a return to Brazil, with Sao Paulo and Palmeiras among the aforementioned teams. 90 Minutes gets to know that Toronto has offered the player to other clubs globally at a asking price of $ 7 million – $ 500,000 more than they paid for him earlier this year.
In addition to Insigne, TFC is also linked with Torino’s striker Andrea Belotti. Again, if they were to make such a high-profile and expensive transfer, another DP would have to be relocated or bought down.
Alejandro Pozuelo suffered a decline in form and struggled with injuries last season but was the league’s MVP 2020 and is unlikely to leave. Jozy Altidore has long been linked with a departure from Toronto, with the two parties believed to be working on a way to terminate his contract.
