NYCFC after a No. 9
This won’t come as a huge surprise to anyone who watched Maxi Moralez play out of position at center forward on Saturday at Orlando, but New York City FC remain in the market for a striker. Sources told MLSsoccer.com last week that the club made a very strong offer for former LA Galaxy forward Ola Kamara before he was sold to Chinese club Shenzhen FC, a bit of news that head coach Dome Torrent partially confirmed when he told reporters that NYCFC were indeed interested in the Norwegian.
With Kamara no longer in play, NYCFC are now searching the international market for their forward. The club doesn’t have a DP spot to play with, but they do have the space to make a TAM signing. With no natural center forward currently on the roster following the offseason departures of David Villa and Jo Inge Berget, they’re looking to get a deal done as soon as possible.
