Austin FC are being linked to another offensive signing in Cecilio Dominguez
As their inaugural season draws near, Austin FC are continuing to build their roster. After signing Rodney Reyes in July they are being linked to another offensive playmaker. As reported by Roberto Rojas of beIN Sports USA via Twitter, Austin FC have expressed interest in signing Cecilio Dominguez of Independiente.
Dominguez is a Paraguayan winger who is a former member of Club America in Liga MX. Since January of 2019, he has played for Independiente in Argentina’s top flight. According to Transfermarkt, Redes and Dominguez are both represented by the same agent which definitely adds an interesting element to this report.
Primarily a left-winger, Dominguez scored two goals and registered two assists for Independiente during the 2019-20 Superliga season. He put together an impressive career at Club America where he scored 21 goals and recorded five assist in 74 appearances.

Internationally, Dominguez has represented Paraguay 17 times during his career. More recently, he made two appearances in the 2019 Copa America. The 25-year-old has registered four assists in his international career with Paraguay.
This would be another big signing for Austin FC who appears ready to make plenty of moves ahead of their first season in Major League Soccer.
Redes is an up and coming threat on the wing and his fellow countrymen would be a great addition to the attacking unit. The duo has the potential to be a real threat in the league and generate plenty of goals.
Dominguez has proven he can be a key contributor offensively and that is exactly what Austin FC will need in their first season in MLS.
At 25, he could be one of the veteran leaders of the offense. He already has experience in top leagues which could prove to be invaluable for Austin FC.
