Sebastien Le Toux on the trading block: Do you want the Fire to go all in?

Scott Kessler of The Brotherly Game is reporting that Sebastien Le Toux has somewhat shockingly returned home early from his trial with the Bolton Wanderers. Even more shocking is that the Philadelphia Union have put the striker on the trading block. Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact have emerged as trading partners according to Kessler.

Jonathan Tannenwald of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Philadelphia has already allocated the salary cap space Le Toux and the Union's 2011 starting goaltender Faryd Mondragon will free up. Mondragon's departure become official today when he announced he would finish his career with Colombia's Deportivo Cali.

Now for the big twist in Le Toux and Mondragón potentially leaving Philadelphia. The Daily News has learned that those moves could free up enough space for the Union to officially announce that they have have purchased - or at least intend to officially purchase - the contract rights of midfielder Roger Torres.

The 19-year-old Colombian is still officially the property of his original club, América de Cali.

If the Union really are up for trading Le Toux, he could be a perfect strike partner for Dominic Oduro. The Fire are seriously rolling the dice by banking on a repeat 10+ goal performance from the Ghanaian striker who has never scored more than 5 goals before this season. Le Toux could turn the Fire into an offensive force if he repeated production anywhere close to the 25 goals and 20 assists he has in the last two MLS seasons.

He wouldn't be cheap so what would you offer? Marco Pappa? Allocation money? Orr Barouch? Draft picks?
