Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan could sign for struggling MLS side Toronto FC as early as tomorrow, according to The Globe and Mail.
The 34-year-old - who struggled for form at Serie A club Inter Milan after joining them in 2011 - will provide a welcome boost to the Canadian side, who find themselves second bottom in the current standings.
Forlan will also bring a global appeal to the club after the illustrious career he has had to date - featuring for the likes of Manchester United and Inter - and also has won the Golden Ball at the most recent World Cup in South Africa.
He most recently turned out for Brazilian side Internacional, where he averaged almost a goal every two games.
His ability to play in the hole behind the frontmen will be a welcome bonus for manager Ryan Nelsen with Rob Earnshaw and Jeremy Brockie in particular, crying out for some regular source of service.
Given Toronto's precarious position in the table - 14 points short of a play-off spot - the imminent signing of Forlan could prove to be a masterstroke by the club.
