Rumour: Kenny Cooper

Could Kenny Cooper be the next Impact striker?

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Sources close to both the Montréal Impact and Seattle Sounders organizations have reported that veteran Seattle striker Kenny Cooper could be joining the Impact as part of a trade deal. Sources in Seattle expect to recieve allocation money and a draft pick in return for the striker.

Cooper played in the US Open Cup for Seattle in 2014, and occassionally as a substitute forward.

Santiago Gonzalez was released from the Impact roster Wednesday morning, clearing the way for another striker.

However, many in Montréal remain unconvinced that a trade for Cooper would be feasible, or in the interests of the Impact.

With Cameron Porter injured and Dominic Oduro coming into form on the right wing for an injured Justin Mapp, the Impact have few options up top. Kenny Cooper could be an option that would provide some relief to the Impact as they enter some important matches in the future.
