Chicago Fire want Costa Rican striker Paulo Wanchope

The Fire are looking to beef up their very thin attack with the signing of Paulo Wanchope. Wanchope is one of the best strikers ever produced by Costa Rica and at the age of 30, still has a number of quality years ahead of him. However, Wanchope does have a history of under performing as seen by his recent release from FC Tokyo.

If this does happen, it will be up to new Fire coach Juan Carlos Osorioto make this happen. The good news, Osorioto has a coaching history with Wanchope as he was conditioning manager at Manchester City for while Paulo was with the club.

As a player, Wanchope would need to force defenders to stay deep, thus opening up the midfield for Cuauhtémoc Blanco and if Blanco has time, Chicago will be in a good place.
