Jurgen Locadia was Brighton and Hove Albion’s record signing just over two years ago, and now he might be coming to Major League Soccer.

FC Cincinnati would be the destination, according to reports, in a massive coup for the Ohio club.

The Dutch playmaker managed just six goals and two assists in 43 appearances for Brighton, but has four goals and an assist on loan to Hoffenheim this season.

Big MLS signings have often fallen into young players on the come up and players on the back end of their careers, but this is a powerful attacker very much in his prime (26).

The report doesn’t specify whether it would be a loan or permanent deal, but the ex-PSV star would be an almost surefire gamebreaker for FCC.

It was a mere 13 months ago that Locadia was scoring in back-to-back games versus Arsenal and Everton. There’s a surreal feeling to this report, and it would be a real show of power from MLS and FCC.

Love this signing. Make it happen. It’s record-threatening good.
