Major League Soccer website's transfer watch is saying there is a team making a move for Yura Movsisyan. The Columbus Crew may be out of international transfer spots, but could they be looking to incorporate some more firepower up front with a green card in hand.
If so, Movsisyan would be a delightful option. He's made the Russian Premier League look like an Indoor Soccer League with his strike rate there (44 goals in 82 overall games).
Yet, with English Premier League interest this past Summer, I doubt Spartak Moscow would let Yura go cheaply; Probably why the Major League Soccer side that made the offer was turned down.
Still if you were to go for broke, and wanted someone that could finish chances, Yura Movsisyan would be an excellent, green card target.
A sort of target that you could say "there you go, we are done with our offseason. Let's go win a trophy." But, I guess that depends on how ambitious Columbus Crew SC are in their first season rebranded.
**In other news, Juan Agudelo is also in negotiations with MLS again.
Not as interested in Agudelo. But, would like the Crew to be a little more aggressive and throw their hat in the ring for another player up top. I think the Crew are one credible striker away from a complete team.
