Swedish Media outlet, Expressen GT, is reporting that Minnesota United is close to a deal that will send 25-year-old Finnish midfielder, Rasmus Schüller, to the Twin Cities.

The midfielder is currently with BK Häcken in the Allsvenskan where they finished 10th in the table this past season. According to the reports above, the signing could be done within a week, but nothing is clear. When the Swedish outlet reached out for comment, the sporting director for BK Häcken was not willing to answer.

According to transfermarkt.com, Schüller is a central midfield player that can play in either a more advanced position or a more defensive central midfield role. The move comes on the heels of reports that United are on track to sign Vadim Demidov, who was most recently in the Norwegian leagues.

Schüller has made over 100 appearances for his clubs through his time in Finland and then in Sweden, and he has been capped 14 times by the Finnish National Team since 2013. We will bring you more information as we receive it.

Fun little factoid: According to Wikipedia, Schüller studied law at the University of Helsinki.
