Houston Dynamo FC acquired forward Sebastian Ferreira in a full transfer from Club Libertad Asuncion in Paraguay on Tuesday.
Terms were not released by the Dynamo, other than to announce the deal was the most expensive signing in club history. Ferreira will occupy an international roster spot as well as one of the team's designated player spots.
The 23-year-old won two league scoring titles and the 2021 Paraguayan Primera Division Apertura title with Asuncion.
"Sebastian is a high-potential attacker with an impressive scoring record in South America and LigaMX. He also possesses the tenacity and selflessness that we are looking for in Houston Dynamo FC players," Dynamo general manager Pat Onstad said in a statement. "Our top priority this offseason was to sign a forward who can be a difference maker."
Ferreira finished with 34 goals and 12 assists in 79 appearances in all competitions for Libertad.
The transfer will be completed pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and P-1 Visa.
