“Sometimes things just take a little longer than you hope, but I think that we should be just about there with the goalkeeper,” Bradley said Tuesday from San Diego, where the MLS team is holding its training camp. “And we’re still working on some other things.”
Toronto has not identified Johnson but the club has been widely linked to the U.S. international, who spent the last six seasons with New York City FC. Reports that NYCFC is in talks to secure goalkeeper Matt Freese from the Philadelphia Union have added fuel to that fire.
Freese is a backup to Jamaican international Andre Blake in Philadelphia. Blake is the reigning MLS Goalkeeper of the Year and the first to earn the honour three times.
