“Mikael comes highly recommended. Several big teams in Sweden, Norway and Denmark were starting to take an interest but we got him through a good contact of ours who felt Mikael had so much upside,” Minnesota head coach Adrian Heath said in a release.

“It’s an area of the field that we’ve been trying to get more depth. … He’s 21, incredibly athletic, has played fullback, played right side in a three-man backline, played right side of a four — there’s a lot of versatility there. We’re excited to get him in and we feel he’s only just started. There’s a lot of growth in him.”

Marques played for Swedish clubs IFK Malmo and Jonkopings Sodra IF before joining AFC Eskilstuna in January 2022.
