Seattle Sounders GM Hanauer expects to be active in transfer market

Seattle Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer says they're ready to be active in the summer transfer window.

Hanauer was asked about how "aggressive" they will be in the market by the Seattle Times.

"I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the word 'aggressive,' but we want to get better," he replied.

"We always want to get better. We will certainly not be shy about going out and signing a bigger player, as long as that player is going to make us a better team and fit in to the organization and be a good fit. We're not going to take risks or be desperate or make knee-jerk decisions because maybe we get shut out two games in a row or because we take a few goals two games in a row. We want the decisions to be good, strategic decisions for building a championship team.

"So whether that means multiple players, whether it means one player, whether it means multiple players in one position versus balance throughout the roster, whether it means big money or maybe a smaller designated player or just players that fill in where we feel like we may have some deficiencies, all of that will be addressed in the process."
