Roma striker Marco Borriello may well be on the verge of becoming the latest European striker to try his chances in Major League Soccer.
The Serie A frontman is reportedly in talks with the North American league and could find himself lining up alongside Frank Lampard and David Villa at New York City FC according to Sky Sport Italia.
The blue side of New York has used two of its designated player spots on the two World Cup men and the former Italian international Borriello could well be the third one on the teams roster.
The 32-year-old recently returned to the Giallorossi after an unsuccessful six-month loan spell at West Ham United last term, where he made just two Premier League appearances and failed to trouble the scorers list, and it seems he could be set for a possible move to MLS in the coming weeks.
The MLS outfit apparently want the 32 year old Italian international to form a formidable partnership with Villa up front and a deal could take place soon.
New York are debuting in the MLS at the start of next season as an expansion side and expectations are high in the Big Apple. The team have spent big already and their link with Manchester City could see them bring in several talented youngsters on loan from the English side to boost the roster.
NYCFC currently have a squad of five players, with Villa and Lampard being joined by MLS veterans Josh Saunders, Jeb Brovsky and Andrew Jacobson.
Juventus in the Race
Borriello is also being linked with a move to former club Juventus as the Serie A reigning champs with the Old Lady looking for a low-cost option to provide strength in depth
