Chicago’s Daily Herald is reporting that former Hamburger SV striker Maximilian Beister has been on trial with Chicago Fire.
The 26-year-old has struggled for playing time since leaving the Red Shorts in 2015, enjoying somewhat disappointing spells with Mainz, 1860 Munich and Melbourne Victory.
He has been a free agent since his contract at Mainz expired in June and is now fighting for a chance to sign for the MLS outfit.
Chicago Fire enjoyed a bright start to the new season, climbing to fourth in the Eastern Conference, but a four-match losing run is threatening to ruin their campaign.
Head coach Veljko Paunovic has two very good forwards in Nemanja Nikolic and David Accam, but he clearly plans to further reinforce his front line.
