Sources have told @90min_Football the Portland Timbers are in pole position to sign Venezuelan midfielder Abraham Bahachille, despite European offers 🇻🇪— Chris Smith (@CJSmith91) January 27, 2022
The 20-year-old has been on trial with #RCTID & played the full 90 in their game v Seattle Soundershttps://t.co/Rk95CbWmOB
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.
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.
