Major League Soccer admit they are still hoping to tie down the future of Erick 'Cubo' Torres.
The 21-year old striker is back with Liga MX club Chivas de Guadalajara following a successful season-and-a-half loan spell with Chivas USA, where he scored a total of 22 goals, but MLS is looking to get him back.
A league statement read: "Over the past several weeks, MLS has been engaged in discussions with Erick Torres and Chivas de Guadalajara regarding the league's option to acquire his contract.
"Although no agreement has been concluded, these discussions are continuing."
Since departing Los Angeles, Torres has been back training with Guadalajara and representing the Mexico U21 side in the Central American and Caribbean Games in Veracruz
