Ola Kamara, DC United

If Orlando wants a pure goalscorer, Kamara would be a great option. The Norwegian had a career renaissance with DC United last season, scoring 19 goals, joint-best with Taty Castellanos. That number was heavily inflated by his nine penalties, but Orlando also needs a penalty taker, a role Kamara thrives in. His non-penalty expected goal numbers are still pretty good at 0.43 per 90 minutes. He’s a good finisher who will find the back of the net, something Orlando could use on the frontline. Rumor has it, DC United are looking for a trade, so Kamara is definitely available if that’s the route Orlando goes down.
