The Chicago Fire acquired forward Kei Kamara from CF Montréal for $250,000 in GAM split across two seasons, $125,000 in 2023 and $125,000 in 2024. CF Montreal could receive an additional $150,000 in conditional GAM.
“Kei has shown throughout his career that he can consistently produce goals in MLS, including this past season with CF Montreal," said Chicago Fire sporting director Georg Heitz. "Not only will he help to make us more dangerous in the attacking third, but he will bring experience and leadership to the squad. Kei will be an important addition to the team as we continue to build the squad for the 2023 season.”
The 38-year-old Kamara had nine goals and seven assists in 2022 for CF Montreal, helping the Canadian team to a second-place finish in the Eastern Conference in 2022. In January, he sought a trade.
