After a debut season that shocked many, Atlanta United's trademark attacking prowess could get even more dangerous as they tie up the loose ends on a deal that would see one of Argentina's hottest prospects arrive in Georgia.

18 year old Ezequiel Barco could soon belong to the Five Stripes as the MLS club prepare to splash $12 Million on the Independiente player.

Right footed Barco starred 27 times for the Argentine club last season in his first professional year and has manned the Independiente midfield 8 times since the start of their 17/18 season in November.

Barco is widely recognised as one of the brightest young talents in world football and could arrive in Atlanta after the Copa Sudamericana is played in mid-December.
