Is Kemar Lawrence returning to Major League Soccer?
It could very well be.
According to Ives Galarcep of Soccer By Ives reported that several MLS clubs are interested in the former Red Bulls left back, who was named a 2018 Best XI selection.
Nicknamed “Taxi, the Jamaican international has played for Anderlecht in Belgium the last two seasons after his transfer in 2019. He has made eight successive starts, having played in a dozen league matches.
I’m told multiple #MLS teams are lining up to try and secure a transfer for Kemar Lawrence. The Anderlecht fullback is open to a return to MLS, but it will require a transfer fee.

During his five-year tenure with the Red Bulls, Lawrence was a dynamic force on both sides of the ball. Utilizing his speed, the defender overlapped regularly. When he was caught out of position during one of his offensive forays, Lawrence’s speed allowed him to recover and close down his man on his side of the field.
