The New England Revolution are struggling to score goals in 2013, but help is on the way. The Revolution acquired Juan Agudelo on Tuesday, trading allocation money to Chivas USA in exchange for the 20-year-old forward. Agudelo is expected to join the team later this week, according to a club statement. “We’re very pleased we were able to complete this deal with Chivas USA,” Revolution general manager Michael Burns said. “While Juan is a young player with tremendous potential, he also already has a lot of experience both inside our league and internationally with the U.S. National Team. We believe Juan will improve our attack and make us a better team.” Agudelo is a fourth-year MLS player, and the Revs will be his third team. He also has 17 appearances with the U.S. Men’s National Team, despite his young age. He burst onto the scene in late 2010 when he debuted for hometown club New York Red Bulls. His impressive performances earned him a call-up to the senior national team, where he was a regular for much of 2011. But his form dipped in 2012, as he struggled to break into the Red Bulls’ starting lineup. He was traded to Chivas USA in May 2012 and went on to make 26 appearances, scoring five goals and adding four assists. Agudelo’s presence should strengthen the Revs’ attack which has scored just four goals in eight games this season (joint-worst in MLS). Forwards Jerry Bengston, Saer Sene, Diego Fagundez, Chad Barrett and Dimitry Imbongo face newfound competition in Agudelo, which should help the Revs ease their scoring woes.
