Sounders sign a new CAM in Magnus Wolff Eikrem

The Seattle Sounders are already preparing coverage for an aging Clint Dempsey and a World Cup bound Nicolas Lodeiro. The Sounders looked to Norway to add depth with the pickup of Magnus Wolff Eikrem. Eikrem’s style is reminiscent of former Sounder Erik Friberg, which in no small part is due to being Friberg’s sidekick at Malmo FF, winning the Allsvenskan in 2016 and 2017.

Eikrem was a starter for Manchester United’s under 18 team, but was not able to crack the starting lineup of the Premier League squad. Eikrem did however, accumulate 16 goals and 34 assists at Malmo FF. At only 27 years old, Eikrem has plenty of good years ahead of him.
