The Sounders have until 1 p.m. Friday to claim midfielder Marco Pappa through the allocation order, and Guatemalan publication Nuestro Diario is reporting Seattle will do just that.
Pappa’s representation is citing as the source.
Reports have been out for several weeks now linking the Sounders the acquisition of the former Chicago standout. The Fire were also interested but noted Thursday that Seattle’s asking price to move up in the order for Pappa was too high.
