With each passing day, the Orlando City SC transfer rumours seem to be hotting up with Josué Colmán the latest player linked with the Lions.

According to respected Paraguayan reporter Markos Gonzalez, he tweeted yesterday that Orlando City SC are in the final stages of negotiations to sign the 19-year-old attacking midfielder.

Gonzalez’ tweet suggests that Jason Kreis‘ Lions are currently in talks to buy 80 per cent of Josué Colmán’s rights for $3.5 million from Paraguayan side Cerro Porteño.

With Orlando City UK eager to hear any new snippets of information this off-season, we researched the web to find out who exactly Josué Colmán is.

Mr. versatile?

A classic number 10 attacking midfielder by trade, this is the number Josué Colmán currently wears for Paraguayan 2017 Clausura champions Cerro Porteño.

Carrying this prestigious number at such a young age is typically seen by football fans as a sign that the player is very highly-rated.

Also capable of playing as a secondary striker or on the right wing, Josué Colmán seems a highly adaptable forward-thinking player.

Interestingly, Cerro Porteño was the team where Atlanta United midfielder Miguel Almirón began his career too.

Under-23 international

Still a teenager of course, 19-year-old Josué Colmán has earned four caps for the Paraguay Under-23 national side since 2016.

Having also made 10 appearances for Los Guaraníes Under-17 side and two outings for their Under-20s, he is a clearly highly-rated player.

Still making his way in the game, a transfer to Major League Soccer would surely boost his prospects of making his senior international debut for Paraguay in the near future.

Pocket sized

Josué Colmán is a diminutive midfielder standing at just 5 ft 6 in, making him just three inches taller than Toronto FC’s Sebastian Giovinco.

Making 32 league appearances for Cerro Porteño this year, he also appeared in two Copa Sudamericana fixtures too.

Would Josué Colmán make a good signing for Orlando City SC?
