TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Report
Eriksson joined San Jose for the 2018 MLS season from Swedish side Djurgardens IF, and now Kristoffersson reports that the 30-year-old attacker is on his way back to the Allsvenskan side. The Earthquakes would reportedly stand to earn a transfer fee for Eriksson, with the deal possibly wrapping up by next week.

Eriksson has earned the captain’s armband from head coach Matias Almeyda, helping San Jose reach the quarterfinals of the MLS is Back Tournament. He has 13 goals and 14 assists in 69 matches since arriving a few years back as a Designated Player. No longer a Designated Player, Eriksson often features centrally and flanked by wingers Vako and Cristian Espinoza, both of whom hold that label for San Jose.
Before joining the Earthquakes, Eriksson co-led the Allsvenskan with 14 goals in 2017 while playing for Djurgardens. He’s also earned one cap for Sweden – it came during a January 2014 friendly against Moldova – and twice won the Allsvenskan while playing for Malmo FF.
