Bou, 29, started his career with River Plate in 2008. He was sent on a series of loans starting in 2012, spending time with Olimpo (2012–13), LDU Quito (2013-14), and Gimnasia de La Plata (2014).
From 2014–2017, he played for Racing Club, which is where he scored 45 goals in 100 appearances. In 2017, he headed to Tijuana, though he returned to Racing Club in 2018 in a loan deal. Bou’s contract with Tijuana runs until June 2020, according to TransferMarkt.com.
It was believed that Bou would head to Cruz Azul but those plans have seemingly changed. It’s reported that the Revs have made a $10 million for the attacker.
It’s worth noting that Bou’s agent is Christian Bragarnik, who helped bring Brian Fernandez to the Portland Timbers in May 2019. Fernandez is a Argentine attacker who played in Mexico before heading to the Untied States.
