The San Jose Earthquakes announced on Sunday that they have signed 19-year-old Marcos López. The team also signed him to a multi-year deal with their Targeted Allocation Money. 

He will use up one of their International spots on their roster. He will have receive his P1 Visa and an ITC before he will be able to play in the United States.

“We’re very excited to welcome a young player of Marcos’ caliber to San Jose,” said Earthquakes head coach Matias Almeyda. “His impressive play over the last few years gives us confidence that he’ll be an important contributor for us in the present and future.”

Prior to joining the Earthquakes, López played the past two seasons with Sporting Cristal, a Peruvian football team in the Peruvian First Division. He made 23 appearances with the team and had five goals.

He began his career with USMP (Universidad de San Martín de Porres) in 2016 and 2017. He made two appearances for that team.

“For several months, we have put a lot of effort in scouting a left back that can have an immediate impact on both offense and defense,” said Earthquakes general manager Jesse Fioranelli. “Marcos was a crucial player for Sporting Cristal, where he helped them win the Peruvian first division by contributing as a full-back, his natural position, and subsequently as a winger. Despite his young age, Marcos has already earned his spot with the national team under Ricardo Gareca.

“He held offers from European and South American clubs, which is why I am excited that Marcos committed to joining the Quakes on a long-term basis before the upcoming South American U-20 Championship.”
