Major League Soccer expansion team St. Louis CITY SC have signed Swedish winger Rasmus Alm on a free transfer.
The 27-year-old joins on a three-year contract through 2025 with an option for 2026. He last played for Elfsborg in Sweden’s top flight, where he managed 27 goals and 17 assists in 108 matches.
“We are excited to bring Rasmus onto the roster for the 2023 season and beyond,” sporting director Lutz Pfannenstiel said.
“He brings great European experience from IF Elfsborg, who play in Allsvenskan the top tier of Swedish football, while also competing in the UEFA Europa League Qualifiers last season. Alm’s technical ability and speed on the wing will prove to be helpful in the attacking third.”
Alm becomes the eighth international player on Bradley Carnell’s team, and their third winger to join just this week, following the signings of Aziel Jackson from Minnesota United and Jared Stroud from Austin FC via intra-league trades. With that, the St. Louis CITY SC roster is now at 12 players for their inaugural season.
