Akron's Joao Moutinho was selected Friday by Los Angeles FC with the No. 1 overall pick in Major League Soccer's amateur draft.

The day also featured a major trade: The Philadelphia Union acquired winger Davis Accam from Chicago for $1.2 million in allocation money. Atlanta United also announced the much-anticipated arrival of attacking midfielder Ezequiel Barco.

Moutinho, 19, gained attention at the MLS combine. Last season as a freshman defender, he started in all 24 games for the Zips and was named the Mid-American Conference freshman of the year.
