Portland Timbers are completing a club-record signing! According to The Athletic’s Sam Stejskal, Timbers have closed a deal for Brian Fernandez, after a long spell of rumours about his arrival. Fernandez arrives at Portland from Liga MX side Necaxa ahead of the end of the primary transfer window which ends on Tuesday for all MLS clubs.
The final transfer fee has not been confirmed, but the Mexican media claim it is in the range of $10m-$12m. That means Timbers are breaking their $5m record from 2015 when they signed Lucas Melano.
Fernandez is 24 years old and has featured at right wing for the club, where he has 18 goals and five assists in 32 appearances across all competitions since joining in 2018. He is set to finish as the second-highest scorer with 12 goals in the 2019 Liga MX Clausura, where the regular season will be coming to an end next Sunday.
