Vancouver Whitecaps in talks for New England's Kei Kamara - report

The Vancouver Whitecaps are in trade talks to acquire striker Kei Kamara from the New England Revolution, according to a report in The Province newspaper.

New England picked up their 2018 contract option on Kamara, 33, last month, but the Vancouver daily said he could be on his way out after a year and a half with the Revs.

After Kamara helped Columbus reach the MLS Cup final in 2015, Crew SC looked to trade him the following year following an argument with Federico Higuain. Kamara was linked with a move to the Whitecaps before ultimately being traded to New England.

Kamara said in October that he was not happy in New England, as the team missed the playoffs this season, and he would rather suit up for a contender.

"It's been really tough times for me here, and I have to be honest again," Kamara said. "I'm finishing up a year with 12 goals and I don't see myself as a 12-goal striker in this league. I want to be able to produce, I want to be in the postseason. That's what you shoot for from the first day of preseason.

"So yeah, I'm not completely happy going into the offseason right now, saying this is how we finished up."

Kamara's 98 MLS goals are the 10th-most all-time and rank second among active players behind Chris Wondolowski.

Combined with last week's signing of Venezuelan striker Anthony Blondell, a move for Kamara would likely confirm that leading scorer Fredy Montero will not return to the Whitecaps.

Montero scored 13 goals in 2017 while on loan from Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda.
