The New England Revolution traded for Chivas USA forward Juan Agudelo on Tuesday in exchange for allocation money, reports Comcast SportsNet New England.
The Revolution are in need of some offensive help as they have scored just four goals in eight games.
Agudelo, 20, is in his fourth MLS season and made his professional debut in 2010 with the New York Red Bulls. He has scored two goals and assisted on another in six appearances with Chivas USA this year.
In 59 career appearances with the Red Bulls and Chivas USA, Agudelo has scored 11 goals and added six assists. Agudelo also has 17 appearances with the U.S. Men’s National Team.
“We’re very pleased we were able to complete this deal with Chivas USA,” Revolution General Manager Michael Burns said. “While Juan is a young player with tremendous potential, he also already has a lot of experience both inside our league and internationally with the U.S. National Team. We believe Juan will improve our attack and make us a better team.”
