If the Fire are unable to land a big name striker during the transfer window, it looks like they have a backup option lined up. This report says the Fire have offered a contract to Peruvian striker Andy Pando. Pando, 28 years old, has spent his career bouncing around Peruvian clubs. His past season has boosted his stock, leading the league in the 2012 season with 13 goals. This output has propelled newly promoted Real Garcilaso to third place in the Peruvian top flight. The article mentions that he has a release clause in his contract, so if the Fire are in fact interested in him, it shouldn't be much trouble to sign him. Pando also recently gave an in depth interview in Spanish.
