Speaking to the media in past weeks, New England Revolution sporting director and head coach Bruce Arena said that he wanted to make another move. It looks like he finally did.
According to Frank Dell’Apa of the Boston Globe, the Revs have acquired 27-year-old Arnor Traustason from Sweedish side Malmo FF.
Traustason is a well traveled player having stints with the likes of AEK Athens in Greece as well as his latest stop at Malmo FF.
Last season in the Allsvenskan, Traustason racked up a goal and three assist in 20 appearances.
Traustason also has experience on the international level for his native Iceland. He made his debut for Iceland’s national team in 2015 and has appeared in 36 matches and has five goals to his name.
What will stick out to Revolution fans is his versatility. While lining up on the left wing seems to be where Traustason will end up, he also has experience in the midfield.
It’s safe to say that the Revolution have made some changes after the 2020 season and have shown that they want to improve after losing in the Eastern Conference Finals. On April 17th, fans will get their first chance to see if all these moves were worth it.
