Do you like to be entertained? The Houston Dynamo may be booking you tickets for a summer of fun thanks to one electric young Honduran talent.

Reports claim that Alberth Elis could be headed to Major League Soccer with Wilmer Cabrera’s Dynamo. UPDATE: Elis has signed with Houston.

The 20-year-old attacker is currently property of Monterrey, and has 15 caps with three goals for Honduras. He had two goals and one assists in five matches during Honduras’ Olympic run.

The thought of him running wide could set the Dynamo forward corps up for some easier goals (maybe even rebirth Will Bruin).

He was even better in qualifying, as U.S. fans learned first hand.
