- A quality defensive midfielder, especially if the team is going to predominantly use a diamond formation;
- A solid forward to augment the offense;
- A left back
Yesterday, New York City addressed two of those needs in the MLS Super Draft. They selected forward Khiry Watson with the number 2 pick, and drafted a potential left back in Connor Brandt with the 23rd pick. Brandt played midfield in college, but slotted as a left back during the draft combine.
