Inter Miami has lost five straight games and it was apparent in the MLS is Back Tournament that reinforcements are needed.
And after struggling to put the ball in the net, the club should prioritize improving its goal-scoring.
Here are three offensive transfer targets for Inter Miami:
Silva would be the dream signing for Miami. He’s been linked with the club for a while, after Tony Evans of The Independent reported that Silva would sign with the club in September 2019. Inter Miami is still being mentioned as a possible landing spot for Silva in Manchester City’s post-match, but a move to Qatar seems like the more likely move.
Silva has scored 90 goals and dished 118 assists in 497 club appearances throughout his career. He was a key factor in Spain’s 2010 FIFA World Cup Championship run and has won the Premier League in England four times.
The Sturridge situation will be an interesting one to follow. At his best, he scored 22 goals in 29 games in the English Premier League in 2013/14. His injury history is a concern as he’s only played in 26 EPL games over the last two years because of those issues.
His most recent stint was for Trabzonspor of the Turkish League was rather successful, as he contributed four goals and four assists before being suspended for sports betting. He’s been a free agent since having his suspension end in June.
Sturridge has played for England’s Senior National Team and it’ll be interesting to see if those ties play a role in attracting the attention of David Beckham. Sturridge has made it known that he’s interested in expanding his music label in the United States while finding a place to play.
A player that’s in a public dispute for playing time with his current manager at Real Madrid could find the playing time he’s been searching for in Miami.
Beckham has been in contact with Madrid’s president over the Colombian star and it’s likely that he’ll be on the move when Real Madrid finishes their 2020 Champions League campaign.
Rodriguez comes off of a 2018-19 campaign in which he appeared in 20 matches with 13 starts for Bayern Munich, scoring seven goals and registering three assists. Since coming back from a two-year loan with the German champions in 2019, Rodriguez’s contribution has been limited for Real Madrid.
Nonetheless, the 29-year-old Rodriguez has the potential to make a significant impact and attract young talent to Inter Miami.
