Revolution looking for right pieces to add during summer transfer window

Arena: “We’ve been looking, we haven’t yet come up with a player we’re comfortable with.”

The New England Revolution haven’t identified any players to add during the summer transfer window, but they are looking.

The MLS secondary transfer window will be open from Jul. 7 to Aug. 5. It’s an opportunity for teams to bolster their roster ahead of the home stretch. Last year, the Revolution added Matt Polster, Kekutah Manneh, Tommy McNamara, and Lee Nguyen and traded Wilfried Zahibo.

We could see moves this year, but that depends on finding the right pieces for the team.

“There’s no information to give,” head coach and sporting director Bruce Arena said when asked for an update about the summer transfer window. “If there’s a player that we can add, we’ll add a player. We’ve been looking, we haven’t yet come up with a player we’re comfortable with.”

The Revs currently have three open roster slots but all eight of their international slots are being used. Their three Designated Players slots are also occupied.

It’s worth noting that the Revs are in a different spot than they were last year. Instead of fighting for a playoff spot, they’re competing for a Supporters’ Shield. Of course, there are still areas that could be improved.
