Sebastian Giovinco is going to be a headache for any defender in the MLS. The 27-year-old Italian striker is very fast, very skilled with the ball at his foot, can dribble and is exciting to watch. Currently, he is stuck behind some of the top talent in the world at Serie A powerhouse Juventus but in July, he’ll be making his way across the Atlantic Ocean and is set to join Toronto FC.

Giovinco has played for the Italian national team in both European and World Cup qualifiers and has been a part of back-to-back Serie A championship teams next to superstars like Paul Pogba and Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Pirlo.

Toronto FC has been very aggressive the past year to significantly upgrade talent on the team. Last January, the club added US national team star Michael Bradley, who learned to speak Italian when he was with A.S. Roma, and just a few days ago added another top American, Jozy Altidore. Those two, with Giovinco and No. 9 overall draft pick Clement Simonin, will make for a very interesting mix of players that could end up making Toronto not only a good team but also a fun team to watch on the field.

The canadian MLS franchise ended up in seventh place of the Eastern conference last year, just one point behind Philadelphia in the final standings and eight behind Sporting Kansas City, which clinched the fifth spot into the playoffs. Toronto’s overall record was 11-15-8. But they have been aggressive trying to turn that around.
