An agent is your best bet. If you haven't played at a competitive level enough to have been scouted, then you will have to start hitting up free agent camps for various leagues. If you know someone in the business side, and are a decent enough player with a good work ethic and high light footage, sometimes you can be referred to teams.
As far as playing in Europe, unless you are already playing professionally, you might have to start off at the premier level before you can make the elite leagues. Usually some premier leagues don't allow for as many import players because they prefer to develops their own nations players at that level. The English elite league is like that with their premier league.
You also see limits on import players in the Asian leagues too.
Summer is coming, start working on your endurance and strength now so you can be ready for those free agent camps. Lots of competition, and a lot of guys are already working their ass off to make a spot. Good luck.
