Brazilian forward Samuel, 22-years-old, joins the LA Galaxy on loan from Brazilian club team Fluminense FC.

As reported on Tuesday morning, the Galaxy acquired the young striker from the Brazilian league and is only waiting for the receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and his P1 Visa.

The Brazilian star has two years under his belt with Fluminense with 15 goals in 72 appearances.

Samuel will be the fourth Brazilian in the Galaxy squad, joining midfielders Juninho, Marcelo Sarvas, and defender Leonardo. With the new striker in the front, the Galaxy will have Brazilians in every part of the field.

This is a good move by the LA Galaxy since last season the club traded away Mike Magee who could have helped the Galaxy finish the last season.

Magee was on a hot scoring streak, but he was traded away to acquire midfielder Robbie Rogers, who was the first openly gay player to play for the MLS. Rogers did not provide the guns that Magee had, and the Galaxy lacked some scoring abilities.

With Samuel, hopefully, the LA Galaxy will go back to its high scoring ways, along with Irish forward Robbie Keane and Golden Boy Landon Donovan.

Next, the Galaxy will need to fortify the defense, because it still needs some work, especially after losing Sean Franklin to the DC United with the Re-Entry Draft.
