Keseru currently plays his club football with Bulgarian side Ludogorets, where he was the league's top scorer with 22 goals during the 2016-17 campaign. Internationally, the 31-year-old has scored six goals in 23 appearances for Romania, including three during 13 appearances in qualifiers for either the World Cup or European Championships.
Colorado are expected to take a more attack-minded approach under new coach Anthony Hudson, and would stand to need more striking depth if they go ahead with an expected switch to a 3-5-2 formation this year.
Keseru spent a sizable chunk of his early pro career in the first and second divisions in France before stints at Steaua Bucharest in his native Romania and Al-Gharafa in Qatar. He's seen action in UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches both at Steaua and with Ludogorets since his move to Bulgaria before the 2015-16 season.
