The Red Bulls are gearing up for the second half of their season and keeping lots of options available.

For the first time in a long time the Red Bull rumor mill is churning again.

Following the Red Bulls’ announcement that they had acquired Panama’s Fidel Escobar on a loan deal, MSG’s Kristian Dyer reported that Escobar’s move to the Red Bulls is just the beginning.

Dyer reported that the next official signing could be Norwegian attacker Muhamed Keita (no relation to Naby).

Keita joined Lech Poznan in 2014, but has spent most of his time with the Polish club on loan to teams back in Norway. Most recently, he spent a short stint with Valerenga.

Additionally, Dyer reported that recently-released Columbus Crew midfielder Dilly Duka was in training with the Red Bulls, and head coach Jesse Marsch referred to the Montville, NJ native’s appearance as “more than just a training stint.”

Since being drafted by Columbus 8th overall in the 2010 SuperDraft, Duka has made over 130 MLS appearances in stints with the Crew, Chicago Fire and Montreal Impact. He has 12 goals and 14 assists in his MLS career.
