A day after making a big blockbuster trade to land French striker Eric Hassli from the Vancouver Whitecaps, Toronto FC added some more depth at forward with the addition of Quincy Amarikwa.
TFC acquired Amarikwa in a trade from the New York Red Bulls, who picked him up off waivers after he was let go by the Colorado Rapids. Toronto sent New York a conditional draft pick for the 24-year-old forward.
Amarikwa and Hassli join former FC Dallas forward Andrew Wiedeman among the forwards brought in by Paul Mariner in hopes of helping the TFC offense overcome the losses of Danny Koevermans (to a torn ACL) and Joao Plata (who left the club to go on loan).
Toronto is still expected to add a centerback or two during the summer transfer period, with Swedish defender Olof Mellberg and Canadian centerback Kevin McKenna two potential targets.
