After San Lorenzo, it’s time for another Argentinean club to get into the Ignacio Piatti sweepstakes. One of the 2 Argentinean giants, Boca Juniors is reportedly showing massive interest in the Montreal Impact’s 2016 MVP.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto , Boca Juniors’ manager, seems to want Piatti...badly. With Tevez officially gone to China, Boca Juniors is looking to get their hands on an experienced offensive played with Copa Libertadores experience.

The good news is that the Impact will be getting an opportunity to start a bidding war between San Lorenzo and Boca Juniors. The bad news is that the club will probably lose its best player since joining MLS in 2012 and the transfer fee will be divided between MLS and Montreal.

The winter transfer market is not usually very active but one thing for sure, Piatti's loss could be devastating for the Impact.

With Blerim Dzemaili's arrival confirmed for the summer, Adam Braz, Nick De Santis and Mauro Biello can focus on finding more offensive punch upfront.
