Bordeaux’s Honduran international striker Alberth Elis (26) is set to sign for MLS outfit Los Angeles FC, according to a report from France Bleu Gironde. Elis is set to fly to California this Friday to complete the move.
Ligue 2’s second-placed side and LAFC have reportedly reached an agreement for a loan with a quasi-obligation to buy of €5m. Elis is no stranger to the North-American league, with the 56-cap Honduras international playing more than a hundred games with Houston Dynamo between 2017 and 2020. He joined Boavista that year and was loaned in 2021 to Bordeaux then purchased by the Aquitaine outfit for a €6m fee last summer.
The 26-year-old wished to leave the Aquitaine outfit and Les Girondins wanted to sell him. Elis scored only one goal and made one assist in 16 Ligue 2 games, most of them starting from the bench. With Elis gone, the David Guion-led side are expected to step up their efforts to sign Guingamp striker Jérémy Livolant with a new offer.
