The Impact add more depth in midfield with Adrián Arregui

The Montreal Impact announced that they have acquired Argentine midfielder Adrián Arregui on loan from Club Atlético Temperley

The 24-year-old midfielder was rumored to have links with the Montreal Impact and when the Impact acquired an international roster spot from DC United it looked like this deal would happen.

The arrival of Adrian Arregui was conditional to the addition of an international spot. As the Montreal Impact already maxed out all of those, a trade was required and D.C. United was the dancing partner. Arregui will join the club after passing his medicals and upon receiving his international transfer certificate.

The Montreal Impact were in need of more skillful CDM’s and with the team acquiring Adrián Arregui they filled that gap in the middle of the park. Adrián Arregui will bring experience and skill to the Impact. When playing in Argentina Adrián Arregui played alongside former Montreal Impact Leonardo di Lorenzo. Piatti and Arregui might get some instant chemistry as they are both from Argentina.

Arregui seems to be very good on the ball and has a skill for stealing the ball which leads him making a quick pass to the strikers.

The midfielder played in 50 games for Club Atlético Temperley in the last three years helping the club earn promotion to the second division, and then the Primera División. In 45 starts with the club, Adrián Arregui has 2 goals and 2 assists.
