Source: Beckham's Inter Miami in talks to sign America's Roger Martinez as Designated Player

After Alan Pulido confirms his departure from Chivas, Herc Gomez assesses where his most likely destination is.
Steve Nicol believes Whitecaps manager Marc Dos Santos was out of line calling MLS a "Mickey Mouse" league.

David Beckham's Inter Miami CF is in talks to acquire Club America and Colombia international attacker Roger Martinez, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The Athletic was the first to report Miami's interest.

Martinez, 25, would be Miami's second Designated Player signing following the acquisition of 19-year-old Estudiantes winger Matias Pellegrini.

The Colombian has scored 17 goals in 65 league and cup appearances for Las Aguilas since he was acquired from La Liga side Villarreal in 2018. Prior to his stint with Villarreal, Martinez was on the books of Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning where he scored 18 goals in 36 league and cup appearances. He made his professional debut with Racing Club in 2013, before being loaned out to Argentine clubs Deportivo Santamarina and Aldosivi.

At international level, Martinez has made 18 appearances for Colombia, scoring two goals.

A source confirmed that Miami had also been pursuing River Plate attacker Exequiel Palacios, but reports out of South America indicate that Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen has the inside track to obtain Palacio's signature.

A source also told ESPN that Miami are in the market to acquire Sebastian Driussi from Zenit St. Petersburg, with the odds of a deal being "50-50."
