The Sounders have acquired defender Román Torres from Inter Miami CF for a conditional first round selection in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft.  Torres played for the Rave Green from 2015-2019, helping the club to three MLS Cup appearances and two titles. 

Torres can join in training and matches after any mandatory quarantine period under local government and MLS health and safety protocol.

Torres made 80 appearance for the Sounders over four seasons.  He started and played every minute of Seattle's three MLS Cup appearances and scored the winning penalty kick in 2016 MLS Cup against Toronto FC.  Torres has started four of his five appearances this season with Miami.
