Winner: Denis Bouanga, LAFC
I'm fully sold on the Denis Bouanga experience. The Gabonese international came in at the end of the summer window last season, but played a key role in helping LAFC win its first MLS Cup. With a full season to integrate, Bouanga looks ready to explode in MLS.
His pace, technical ability and finishing will make Bouanga one of the deadliest attacking players in MLS. I expect him to hit around 30 goal contributions this season, and maybe even more.
Honorable Mentions: Nico Lodeiro (Seattle), Lewis Morgan (RBNY), Hany Mukhtar (Nashville)
