2017 Revolution Transfer Rumor: Revs eyeing Krisztian Nemeth

Could the Hungarian striker help the Revs?

MLS: Houston Dynamo at Sporting KC John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Revolution are interested in Krisztian Nemeth, according to ESPN commentator Taylor Twellman.

During an interview on Sirius XM, Twellman said that Nemeth has expressed interest in coming back to MLS. The Hungarian striker played one season with Sporting KC before transferring to Al-Gharafa of Qatar. Here, he scored 13 goals in 26 appearances.

If Nemeth does return, he would go through the Allocation Order. Columbus Crew SC, who are also in the running according to Twellman, will have first dibs with the Revs sitting second. It’s worth noting that the Revs moved up the Allocation Order on July 3 via a trade with the San Jose Earthquakes.

Nemeth would be quite the addition since he’s a known commodity in the league. In his only season with SKC, he grabbed ten goals and six assists while helping the club win the U.S. Open Cup. The 28-year-old is capable of playing as a striker or as a left or right winger.
