According to, LAFC will pay a $2.5 million signing fee.

Since 2019, the 26-year-old Arango has scored 22 goals with six assists in 58 games with Millonarios. He is expected to provide offense for a team that is 6-5-5 (23 points) and tied for fifth place in the Western Conference heading into Wednesday's home game against Sporting Kansas City.

Eight MLS teams have scored more goals than the 22 LAFC has this season.
