Report: Revs Interested in Goalkeeper Josh Cohen
The Athletic's Tom Bogert provided updates on Noel Buck, DeJuan Jones, and Djordje Petrović as the European transfer window nears an end.
A new report from The Athletic’s Tom Bogert has provided an update on potential outbound transfers as European transfer windows prepare to close as well as a possible addition the New England Revolution could make.
Within his report, Bogert gave updates on Noel Buck, DeJuan Jones, and Djordje Petrović.
While the Revolution are keen on retaining standout goalkeeper Djordje Petrović through the remainder of the season, Tom Bogert suggests a shift in the goalkeeper market may test the club's stance on the matter.
As reported by The Telegraph's Mike McGrath, English Premier League side Chelsea may look to bring Petrovic in after loaning Kepa Arrizabalaga to Real Madrid.
Bogert also mentions how Manuel Neuer’s extended injury recovery and Al-Hilal’s addition of Sevilla keeper Yassine Bounou may increase attention toward the Serbian goalkeeper.
More interestingly, Bogert reported a name the Revolution might look to bring in upon a possible Petrović departure. According to Bogert, the Revolution are looking at American free-agent Josh Cohen.
Cohen has been a free agent since leaving Israel’s Maccabi Haifa in June. The 30-year-old has 262 appearances with Orange County SC, Phoenix Rising FC, Sacramento Republic, and Maccabi Haifa, where he notched 96 clean sheets.
Bogert went on to talk about U.S. international DeJuan Jones. Despite European interest, the Revolution ideally want to hold on to Jones, especially after the season-ending injury to counterpart Brandon Bye.
Finally, Bogert reports any deal for youngster Noel Buck is considered “not urgent” and expects the midfielder to stay for the rest of the season. Bogert added that several European clubs have their eye on Buck. Despite talks between New England and clubs, they seem to have been informal up to this point acccording to the MLS insider.
Bogert does add that things surrounding Buck may ramp up come the winter.
