Please use google chrome and use the built in translate feature...hilarious!

Isn't this the same club that Bobby Wood plays for? Sounds good to me, Get some understanding in what could be the 4th and 5th choice 2018 WC strikers, but if their partnership pays immediate dividends their stock could rise significantly.

Munich - The Lions are on the lookout for a new striker. A trail leads to a U.S. National player. The learned our online newsroom.

A new attacker is still at least get to 1860. That the lion still get two strikers, was "quite possible," said Sports Director Gerhard Poschner on Tuesday against the tz.

He naturally wanted to mention any names. Our online editorial learned now but one candidate: The sixties are Juan Agudelo (21) off. The managers deal with the US-striker, consider a possible obligation.

What is so interesting Agudelo: The 21-year-old would be a free transfer. Most recently, he played on loan at FC Utrecht, scored three goals in 14 games there and prepared three more before. But in the Eredivisie he was active only on loan, he actually stood by the Premier League club Stoke City under contract. Because he scored in England without a work permit, the contract was void.

Ah I get it, because he scored in England without a work permit, his contract was void, should have stuck to the Brian Ching/Emelle Heskey School of strikering.

I don't know if that's fair to say about Heskey, he provides a lot of intangibles on the pitch just like Jozy...big, physical striker who's mostly there for hold up play and to occupy the CBs to make space for other attackers.

But when did Juan score in England? I thought he wasn't ever able to get a WP so how could he have scored?

I'm not saying that he's a good striker, I'm just saying that when your bread-and-butter is being physical, scoring isn't the end all, be all. Of course, it's always nice when you can have both a la Drogba, but you're not going to find that combination too often. Andy Carroll looked he might have been one but so many injuries in the past few years have severely stunted his growth curve. My point is that you wouldn't call Jozy a bad striker for his lack of goals, because we can see his work rate and the difference it makes during a game.

We don't have to worry about that with Juan though...he's way more Luis Suarez than Emile Heskey.

I went to an 1860 game a decade ago when they were a Bundesliga team playing against Schalke in the Olympiastadion and Benny Lauth was their up and coming striker as opposed to a washed up vet that reminds fans of yesteryear. The 1860 fans spent half the game heckling Schalke's fans for being Arbeitslos (unemployed) and the other half of the game singing about how much they hate FC Bayern, just because.

I grew a lot of admiration for 1860 that day. If Juan could lead 1860 back to the promised land he'd be a god. They've been mid table for a number of years but maybe Juan could help them get back to 1860 wir sind starck wie noch nie!

At this point anywhere would be good for Juan. But form what I have seen from 1860 it's there backline that needs new players.

No move for agudelo its pretty worrying that no team would take a player on a free who was previously contracted to stoke. His wage demands apparently have been too high. He priced himself out of the market and now he is without a club very strange situation. I am surprised shea also didnt make a move. Anyways back to agudelo hopefully he can get signed within the next week. It is an absoloutle ridiculous situation that has been occurring with agudelo.

His arrogance and immaturity continues. Perhaps US Soccer should take some of the blame, calling him up to USMNT at age 17...

Since he's free he can sign whenever. Transfer window is only for people who are currently under contract.

Also there are restrictions but Shea can still get transferred I believe but now only to other English clubs if I understand the rules correctly.

agudelos big mistake is not taking the extension at utrecht that was offered before his departure. all he has to do is step down his wages, and he will get a club. at his age, and unprovenness, it should not be the tough ask that it is. cannot blame the mnt, he got called up at 17 but he also got snubbed one a many times, and was given tough love from mls coaches as well...his hard head is his own problem. if his twitter is any indication his ego seems to be growing.

Nope. Window is closed. He can still be loaned out, that window closes the 4th Thursday of November. Also those loans can only be to the lower divisions in England.
