Report: Timbers close to signing Abraham Bahachille

by Charlie Folkestad

The Portland Timbers are close to signing 20-year-old Venezuelan midfielder-defender Abraham Bahachille, according to Chris Smith of 90min.

Bahachille, 20, has mostly played in a defensive midfield role for his former club, Metropolitanos, in Venezuela. He played center back last night for the Timbers in a scoreless preseason draw and was the only player to go a full 90.

According to Smith’s report, “Despite receiving offers from Europe, 90min can confirm the Timbers are now in pole position to complete the free transfer of Bahachille ahead of the 2022 MLS season.”

Bahachille has 54 career appearances for Metropolitanos before becoming a free agent after the 2021 season. It is unclear whether he would be an under-22 signing or have a standard contract.
