Juho Mäkelä lainalle MLS-liigaan: Finnish striker might add depth to defense

I'm regulating this to a Fan Post because it a rumor at this point.  The MLS daily 'Kick-Off' mentioned it.  Here is the link to the article.

A straight take of it put into Google translate comes to:

Australia MTV3.fin sports reach the delivery Juho Makela says that any loan agreement between the United States Football League will be resolved within 24 hours.

Sydney FC will be represented by the Finnish striker Juho Makela australialaisjoukkueen did not fit into the Asian Champions League group play, but because of ulkomaalaiskiintiön. Increased leisure time due to Mäkelä decided to check out lainavaihtoehtojansa-League and MLS Chicago Fire showed their interest.

- Contract negotiations went into the already once the trees because of the duration of the agreement, but today, the negotiations have been reopened. The clubs are spinning the lance length of the loan. Chicago wants to keep me until the end of Sydney and wants me back as soon as the pre-season started. Lets see how old man is - time for consultation is 24 hours, Makela said.

Mäkelällä a valid contract in Sydney FC's with the coming season.

You need to fill in the blanks where Google translate fails, but you see where this is going.  Guillermo Rivera of Fire Confidential pointed out that Makela is 6'3.  Makela's addition to the front would help a Fire team that had over a dozen corners with no goals to show for it.  If this move happens, it could also suggest the Fire are ready to dig in with the 3-5-2.  Makela would be the last international spot and the last roster spot period so I don't think he would be brought in just to be a late sub/occasional starter.  Orr Barouch is handling that role just fine.  If I were coach and Makela was brought in, I'd start Diego Chaves and Makela up top, go with Marco Pappa, Gaston Puerari, Mike Videira, Logan Pause, Patrick Nyarko in midfield.  Videira's spot is up in the air though.  He could be replaced by Marko Maric or Baggio Husidic

This move would make the team deeper overall because Pappa and Puerari could back each other up at the CAM position.  For most games, Pappa can stay out at LM.  This moves Gonzalo Segares back to LB.  Cory Gibbs could rotate at LB and CB spot depending on Josip Mikulic's health.  Based on Jalil Anibaba's performance so far, I wouldn't mind seeing Gibbs get a start at RB either.  We'll see how this one plays out but I'm not opposed even though a striker seems like an odd addition for a team that is so glaringly lacking in the back.  The team is missing some height and if you shift the cards right, this could be a boost for depth across the board.
