Report: LA Galaxy closing in on Swedish winger Stefan Ishizaki

By Adam Serrano

Bruce Arena told reporters earlier this week that the LA Galaxy are nearing a deal with a foreign wide player and according to reports out of Sweden, the Galaxy are closing in on the signature of 31-year-old Swedish winger Stefan Ishizaki.

According to Fotbollskanalen.se's Olof Lundh (who some of you might remember as the man who broke the story of Christian Wilhelmsson's move to the Galaxy back in 2012), LA is nearing a deal with the wide midfielder who is currently with IF Elfsborg in the Swedish first division (Allsvenskan).  A right midfielder, Ishizaki  tallied two goals in 27 appearances for Elfsborg during the 2013 season, making a total of 25 starts.
