Looks like we could get a signing or two this summer.

The MLS secondary transfer window opens July 10 and the New England Revolution are expecting to be active.

Revs president Brian Bilello took a moment on July 4 to answer a few fan questions. Although brief, Bilello mentioned that the club is looking to make moves and has targeted multiple players.

These comments came a day after the Revs secured the second spot in the Allocation Order via a trade with the San Jose Earthquakes. The Allocation Order is used to determine which teams have the inside track for when it comes to signing select Youth and Senior U.S. National Team players and returning MLSers who garnered a transfer fee of $500,000 or more.

In June, Bilello made news when appeared on “Six States, One Podcast” and said that the Revs are looking to bring in a couple of “higher-end roster guys.” This could mean using a Designated Player slot or Targeted Allocation Money.

"I think we could wind up bringing in another guy that’s not a DP or TAM as well—we have a little bit of roster space from a cap perspective—but I think the higher-end guys are where we’re looking to focus," Bilello said.
