Santiago Simon, River Plate
Lose one highly touted winger in Argentina, how about another? Simon is a rising star for Argentine titans River Plate. He has one goal and three assists in 11 league games this season, playing for a stacked roster that features one-time Orlando target Julain Alvarez and Uruguayan star Nicolas de la Cruz.
Simon has the exact profile of a high-level U22 initiative signing in modern Major League Soccer, and with Orlando's new budget, is the exact type of player the Lions should and likely will target.
