Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis admits it may be tough for his club to bring in a replacement for the injured Javier Morales.
The Utah outfit are looking to find an attacking playmaker to fill the void left by the Argentine and have a few midfielders on trial such as Melbourne Victory star Carlos Hernandez and forward/midfielder Dustin Corea.
But Kreis says it would be difficult for his side to bring in a player from overseas as they do not have much transfer money.
"We face multiple challenges in trying to bring someone in to fill Javier's shoes," Kreis said.
"First and foremost is style of play. Second is transition to the physical nature of our league. Third is to have to play on both sides of the ball for us. A lot of teams that play with a No. 10 expect absolutely no defending from them.
