With the possible departure of Celta de Vigo, the Californian midfielder has a golden opportunity to stand out on the international stage and potentially attract the attention of big European clubs. The Copa America, one of the most prestigious tournaments in world soccer, will be the perfect stage for De la Torre to showcase his talent and skills.

De la Torre, who played 35 games for Celta last season, has shown versatility and consistency in midfield, contributing six assists and three goals. His ability to play in both defensive and offensive positions makes him a valuable asset for any team. With an 83% pass success rate and a strong presence in ball recovery, the player has all the tools needed to impress during the Copa America.

The competition offers a showcase for players looking to make a name for themselves at international level. For De la Torre, good performances can not only guarantee a move to a bigger club, but also solidify his place in the US national team. Being in group C, along with Uruguay, Panama and Bolivia, will provide competitive matches where he can show his worth.

At just 26, De la Torre still has a lot to offer and his performance in the tournament will be crucial in defining the next steps in his career. He arrived in Europe through Fulham's youth ranks. His display against his opponents will not only benefit the USMNT, but could also open doors in other European leagues. The European transfer market, which opens on July 10 and closes on September 3, will be a decisive period for the player's future.

As the USA prepare to face Bolivia at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on June 23, all eyes will be on Luca de la Torre. His performances could be the springboard for a new chapter in his career, whether he stays at Celta or moves to another club.
