For the second time today a Revolution striker, this time Saer Sene, has been linked with a transfer out of New England. A report from NE Soccer Today's Sean Donahue states that two French Ligue 1 clubs, FC Sochaux and Stade Rennais F.C. have inquired about Saer Sene.

The report cites a French language report from Yahoo France/Maxifoot.fr that also states this would be a summer move and also mentions an unnamed team in England as a possible landing site.

Sene, who led the Revolution in scoring last season with 11 goals in 23 games, has one goal and two assists in 11 games so far in 2013 after returning from an ACL tear suffered at the end of last season.

Sene has experience playing in France as well as Germany before coming over to the Revs last season and was a bright spot in a dismal 2012 campaign. Sene has featured mainly as a wide midfield/winger type player this season and with the Revs usually employing just a lone striker up top, there is still depth if Sene were to leave. This move combined with the potential exit of Juan Agudelo, however, would leave the Revs in the market for a striker going into next year.

Still, the big Frenchman quickly became a fan favorite last year and his return to the pitch this season was met with great expectations and fanfare as New England struggled out of the gate. His opening goal in the 5-0 goal fest against LA in his first start since his injury was a great moment for him and the team in 2013.
