According to a report from Bild, the New York Red Bulls are “very interested” in free agent attacker Daniel-Kofi Kyereh. The Ghanaian striker recently played for SV Wehen Wiesbaden in the 2. Bundesliga, but was released following the club’s relegation. He had seven goals and seven assists in 29 total appearances last season.
FC St. Pauli is currently leading the race for his signature. The 24-year-old spent his youth career with Eintracht Braunschweig and VfL Wolfsburg and made his professional debut with TSV Havelse. He joined Wiesbaden in 2018 and was instrumental in the club earning promotion to the 2. Bundesliga.
Red Bulls head of scouting Paul Fernie previously served as the head of recruitment at Wiesbaden and was an advocate for his signing. Bild states that the MLS club is at a disadvantage because “entry into the USA for negotiations or getting to know the club is not permitted.” However, Kyereh is not in a rush to sign.
The Red Bulls have been on a year-long odyssey for attacking players. The fruitless search has gone from Scotland to the Premier League to League One and now Germany. With the apparent struggle to score at the MLS is Back Tournament, the desire to outsource talent is understandable.
