Alan Velasco, FC Dallas

2022 Stats: 94 minutes, 1 G, 1 A; 1.91 G+A/90, 5 Shot-Creating Actions

Of all the young imports to MLS in recent years, FC Dallas's Alan Velasco may be the most exciting of them all. He's played just 94 minutes for the Texas club, but he's been sensational from the moment he hit the field. His solo goal against Nashville SC was a magical run and his ability on the ball is special.

He's already fitting in well with the system and compliments Dallas's other attacking options perfectly. The former Independiente star is so good, I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a one-season layover in MLS before a huge move across the Atlantic.
