Chicago add more attackers to the mix
Fire select three forwards in Tuesday's Supplemental Draft
The Fire continued to address their lack of depth up top Tuesday by selecting three attacking players in the Supplemental Draft.
Chicago drafted forward Amani Walker (UC Irvine) with the ninth overall pick, forward/midfielder Yannick Salmon (Rutgers) with the 27th selection and forward Sam Arthur (South Carolina) with the 45th pick.
“We selected three athletic players who have a knack for scoring,” Fire technical director Frank Klopas said in a statement. “Amani, Yannick and Sam have performed well at the collegiate ranks and we look forward to them joining the Chicago Fire Soccer Club.”
