FC Dallas have proven to be a force in MLS this season, but that's not stopping them from looking for reinforcements.
Shortly after FC Dallas dispatched Orlando City, 4-0, in an Independence Day match on Monday night, the Western Conference club's technical director, Fernando Clavijo, stated that help is on the way in the form of a forward. Clavijo did not reveal who the player was, but stated that the forward would help starting striker Maximiliano Urruti.
Clavijo recently said on ExtraTime Radio that Dallas were in the market for reinforcements to help push the club towards its goal of winning a championship. MLS's secondary transfer window opened on Monday.
"I think that we only have one really true striker when you're talking about Urruti, which he does an incredible job on the field. How much he runs is incredible," Clavijo said on ETR. "But I think, realistically, we have to look at somebody up front and Oscar is asking us for some other help."
Bolstering the forward corps is smart insurance for FC Dallas, who moved to the top of the MLS standings with their win on Monday night. Urruti, who was acquired by FC Dallas when the club selected him with the No. 1 pick of the Re-Entry draft after last season, has scored three goals and added three assists in 17 games (16 starts) for the club this season. He had an assist in Monday's win against Orlando City.
