During this offseason, there has been a theme among transfer targets and new signings: forwards. From Eddie Johnson’s move to DC United to Jermain Defoe’s rumored transfer to Toronto FC, forwards have dominated MLS’s transfer window.
With so many talented strikers in the league, here’s a list of 10 forwards who might be competing for the golden boot at the end of the season.
Robbie Keane: The 33-year-old LA Galaxy and Ireland national team’s captain has been the most dangerous striker in the league since he moved from Tottenham Hotspur in 2011. Ireland’s all-time leading goal scorer has scored 34 goals in 55 games. If he stays healthy this year, Keane should score at least 22 goals.
