According to the Italian website, gianlucadimarzio.com, Orlando City could soon be making a move for Schalke 04’s midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng.

According to the site, Kaka recently contacted Kevin Prince Boateng to try to convince him to consider a move to Orlando, since he’s been having a few issues with his German club. The 2 players were teammates at AC Milan during Kaka’s second stint at the Italian club.

Other MLS teams and Galatasaray have also been linked to a possible transfer of Boateng, but could Kaka’s influence make Orlando City the front runner?

It would be a great addition to the team, since Boateng can play many different positions on the field, and we know how much Coach Heath loves players with that kind of versatility. He likes to play through balls and can become a good outlet to setup counter attacks, so his position will most likely be alongside Kaka in the midfield. Neal would be the most likely candidate to give up his role, but Inchy has used Neal in other positions so he’ll still have plenty of playing time.

Last year Boateng made 24 appearances for Schalke 04, 16 of those as a starter, with no goals and 4 assists.
