Breaking: The New England Revolution are close to signing 23-year-old Polish striker Adam Buska as their third designated player, according to multiple sources.— Sam Stejskal (@samstejskal) December 16, 2019
No specific transfer fee, but I'm told it's between what the club paid for Gil and Bou. https://t.co/tUk3rpoKWF
Buksa, 23, has spent his entire career to date in his native Poland, making his debut with Lechia Gdansk before playing for Zaglebie Lubin and currently Pogon Szczecin, and has been a fairly consistent scoring option last season and this term. A Polish youth international, he is on the cusp of making his senior team debut, having been called up, but not making an appearance, for a UEFA Nations League tilt last year.
The Revolution have one Designated Player striker in Gustavo Bou and a DP playmaker in Carles Gil, but among Eastern Conference teams to reach the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs they scored the second-fewest goals, with 50 in 34 regular-season games.
The Revolution's 2020 season kicks off Feb. 29 at the Montreal Impact.
