Even after the additions of Christian Tiffert and Mario Martinez, the Seattle Sounders might not be done adding to their attack just yet.

According to the Seattle Times, Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer said that former Chelsea and Barcelona attacker Eidur Gudjohnsen will be with the club on trial this week ahead of the Sept. 15 MLS roster freeze deadline. As a free agent, he is able to sign with the club this season even though the league's transfer deadline has come and gone.

Gudjohnsen, an Iceland international who will turn 34 later this month, has had a journeyman career following his more notable stops at Chelsea, where he won two Premier League titles, and Barcelona, where he was part of the 2008-09 UEFA Champions League winning team along with Thierry Henry. He last played for AEK Athens last season following a 2010-11 season split between Fulham and Stoke City and spent time at Tottenham and Monaco prior to that. 

What do you think of this development? What do you think this would mean for the Sounders' attack? Do you think his potential acquisition could change the Sounders' outlook?
