After losing a lot of their offensive firepower by parting ways with leading scorer and Designated Player Andres Mendoza, the Columbus Crew took a step in finding an attacking solution by signing Chilean midfielder Milovan Mirosevic on Wednesday.
Columbus had success with a Chilean signing a year ago, finding a stable right back in Sebastian Miranda. The hope for the Crew is that Mirosevic turns out as well. The 31-year-old attacking midfielder scored 46 goals over the last three seasons for Universidad Catolica. He's been capped 25 times for the Chilean national team, including during recent World Cup qualifiers, and he should combine with Eddie Gaven and the up-and-coming Dilly Duka to provide a spark in the middle of the park for Columbus.
The Crew might not be done in the international market, either. According to reports out of Costa Rica, Columbus is set to sign Saprissa forward Olman Vargas, who was on loan at Herediano last season.
What do you think of the moves? What else do you think Columbus needs to do to be considered a competitor in the Eastern Conference?
