Toronto FC signed Venezuelan winger Erickson Gallardo on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old tallied 13 goals and 22 assists in 116 appearances with Zamora FC in his native country and made his debut with the Venezuelan national team in June.

“Erickson is a talented attacking player that will improve our team,” Toronto GM Ali Curtis said in a statement. “He has speed, can shift directions quickly and can open up the game for himself and others.”

Gallardo was acquired using targeted allocation money and is eligible to play Saturday when Toronto takes on the Montreal Impact.
