Bravo would join the team in January in time for the 2021 MLS season and the deal could be worth up to 75% of the player’s rights.
The left back has played for Argentina’s U-23 national team and made his debut in the Argentine Primera Division side in 2017. Should he join the Timbers, he would be the fourth Argentine player joining Diego Valeri, Sebastiàn Blanco and Tomas Conechny.
In a Banfield uniform, the 23-year old has recorded three assists.
