With his skillset, we believe that Chinonso will complement our current attacking players very well and be a key contributor to the team.”

Offor signed a contract through 2023 with a club option for 2024 and will occupy an international roster slot.
The Fire announced their end of season roster decisions on Thursday, the most notable of which saw veteran forward CJ Sapong depart the club. Offor is currently the club's 28th player under contract.
Chicago fell just short of the playoffs in 2020, finishing in 11th place, one point behind Inter Miami and the final playoff place.
