The Houston Dynamo could certainly be on their way to make a huge splash before the summer transfer window closes this week. According this report that the Dynamo is close to signing Mexican forward Luis Angel Landin.

Hat tip for Brian Zygo over at the Zygo Soccer Report for digging this one up. Apparently a few other Houston media guys are talking about this one right now too.

After making a failed attempt to acquire Landin from Monarca Morelia this past winter, it appears that the Dynamo are on the verge of acquiring the 26-year old striker who has been on loan to Cruz Azul.

Reports suggests an announcement could come by the end of the week. Landin is also being reported as in Houston at the moment. At this time, it is unclear as to whether Landin will come to Houston on a loan or a full transfer, more than likely it will be a long-term loan.

The club is declining comment on this deal at the moment.

This signing would be very big for the Dynamo. Adding a striker like Landin would easily put some of their offensive issues to bed and possible give them the attack they need in the CONCACAF Champions League.
