Secondary Transfer Window Primer: Arena wants to sign two, and here are two areas that need improvement

With Major League Soccer’s Secondary Transfer Window opening today and running until Wednesday, August 7, there is only a limited amount of time for the Revolution and their fellows to make moves in order to strengthen themselves for the stretch run.

A couple of months ago, some might have questioned whether or not The Boys In Blue would have made any moves over the course of the upcoming four weeks; after all, the season was in tatters, and it would have been too late — much too late — to make any moves resembling a seismic shift for the remainder of 2019.

But with the sacking of Brad Friedel and the run of form the Revs have been on under Bruce Arena — and with the club making a run at the playoffs following seven straight matches without a loss — it may make some sense to strengthen two areas of the pitch moving forward. And Arena has stated that he would like to bring in two players during this window.

Which two areas, though? Here’s how we see it, in the areas of importance:

Striker/center-forward

It has been a constant refrain for years now: the Revolution have plenty of attacking, goal-scoring talent, so why do they have trouble scoring goals?
