It’s been a tough few seasons for Bobby Wood as he’s tried to regain the form that made him a regular as a forward in the USMNT setup. After a breakout year with Union Berlin in 2015/16, Wood has struggled with Hamburger and Hannover 96. This year has been particularly tough with his playing time dwindling to just 153 minutes so a change might be welcome by Wood and his club.
According to a Bild article that was Google translated by the author, Wood’s agent Volker Struth will be heading to the US to finalize the transfer. At 27 years-old, Wood is in the prime of his career and a move to MLS would allow him to find some playing time and potentially be one of the best American strikers in the league if he can regain the form that he had in Berlin. FCC also lacks a solid option at forward, so the move would be an ideal chance for him to rebuild his career.
