Following a procession of rumors at the end of December, the tip of New York City FC’s midfield appears set for an official boost.

Panama international attacking midfielder Miguel Camargo, who most recently plied his trade in Venezuela for Mineros de Guayana on loan from parent club Chorillo FC of Panama, is on his way to the Five Boroughs, per WFAN and SiriusXM radio man Glenn Crooks.

Previous chatter suggested that this would be a free transfer, although no terms have been made public, and neither NYCFC nor MLS have commented publicly on any deal.

The 23 year old Camargo likes to come up the middle, but can man either wing in a pinch. Before getting sidelined with a knee injury said to keep him out into February, he bagged 12 goals in 32 total league appearances for Mineros. A full international for Panama’s Canaleros since 2014, he has 12 caps to date.

Along with Jack Harrison, Khiry Shelton, and Sean Okoli, Camargo figures to be yet another explosive, field-stretching attacking option for Patrick Vieira in 2017. New York City led MLS in scoring in the regular season last year— are we in for an even more sublime fireworks display next time around?

We’ll keep you posted on all the latest details on the reported deal as they become available. In the meantime, the mouth fairly waters. Let it do so, and enjoy.
