The article, posted Wednesday, states that the Revs have been testing the market during the last couple of weeks and have spoken to multiple teams. One sticking point appears to be Nemeth’s salary, which is said to be $1 million for 2018.
Nemeth, 29, joined the Revs in August after 18 months with Al-Gharafa SC of Qatar. To get the striker from Columbus Crew SC, who was atop the Allocation Ranking Order, the Revs traded $200,000 in Targeted Allocation money, $200,000 in General Allocation Money, and an international roster spot until Dec. 31, 2018.
Nemeth had one goal and one assist in six games last season. He made the bench for the Revs’ 2018 season opener but didn’t play.
If the talk is true, it’s certainly interesting as the Revs already moved their 2017 Golden Boot winner Kei Kamara during preseason. Kamara, who collected 12 goals in 2017, scored in the Vancouver Whitecaps’ first game. If Nemeth is traded, the team’s primary strikers would be Juan Agudelo, Teal Bunbury, Brian Wright, and Femi Hollinger-Janzen.
