Eric Ayuk could be on the move as the Philadelphia Union midfielder is eyeing a job in Europe.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a source tells Metro that Ayuk is close on a deal in Sweden. The move follows his recent strong showing for Cameroon in the U-20 African Cup of Nations tournament.

Signed in 2015, Ayuk came on strong in his first year in MLS with 28 appearances and 14 starts. But a crowded midfield in Philadelphia and constant national team duty made playing time harder to come by last season.

A move would give Ayuk some playing time while also giving him a European platform. The source tells Metro that teams in Switzerland as well as England are trailing the player.
