By Greg Lalas

Could Polish goalscorer Ireneusz Jelen solve Columbus's scoring woes?

According to MLS-News.fr, Crew manager Robert Warzycha is interested in bringing his countryman to the side, which is currently in 8th place in the East and last in the conference in goals scored (17).  

Jelen, 31, has been in France since 2006, spending five seasons with Auxerre and one with Lille. He has scored 49 goals in 153 league appearances in Ligue 1.  

At the international level, he has 29 caps and five goals for Poland, making three appearances in the 2006 World Cup. But was not part of the recent EURO 2012 squad.
