LA Galaxy are reportedly looking to sign another Barcelona player after Riqui Puig joined the club earlier this week.
Puig received interest from a number of European clubs but signed for the MLS side after being persuaded by fellow ex-Barcelona star Victor Vazquez.
The Galaxy then announced that midfielder Rayan Raveloson would be transferred to Ligue 1 team AJ Auxerre to open a roster spot for Puig.

Bringing in Puig was something of a coup for the club, as he is just 22 and was receiving a fair amount of game time at the Nou Camp.
The Galaxy are currently ninth in the MLS Western Conference with 22 points and a 9-10-3 record.
According to reports in AS, the MLS side now have their eyes on another player within the current Barcelona squad.

They failed to reveal a name, but suggested it was likely to be a defensive player.
AS also claim the Galaxy approached Barca over Sergi Roberto, but a deal could not be reached.
The Catalan giants will be key to get unneeded players off their books, as financial issues have left them struggling to register new players.
Despite this, Xavi’s side have still been happy to spend big, with Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski, and Jules Kounde all arriving for over £40 million.
