FC Seoul is highly likely to have two star players from the Premier League at the same time. Ki Sung-yueng from Swansea, Sunderland and Newcastle, who recently renewed his contract, is reportedly likely to join Jesse Lingard from Manchester United, West Ham and Nottingham.꽁머니사이트

With the European football transfer market nearing its end, major British media reported the transfer news involving the K-League club. The BBC and Sky Sports of the United Kingdom reported that Jesse Lingard, a former Manchester United striker, is about to join FC Seoul.

Sky Sports said on its official SNS, “Jessie Lingard is on the verge of a shocking transfer to FC Seoul, Korea,” and sports media “The Athletic” also reported that “Jessie Lingard is close to joining FC Seoul, Korea,” and many media heavily reported Lingard’s entry into the K-League.

Lingard is a former 英n striker who played for Manchester United, West Ham United, and Nottingham Forest. He has many fans both at home and abroad for his unique ceremony and impressive attack. Born in 1992, Lingard joined the Manchester United youth team at the age of eight and played for Manchester United for more than 20 years until moving to Nottingham in 2022. After scoring zero goals in 17 league games at Nottingham last season, he remains an independent (FA) player.

The total Premier League record is 29 goals in 182 games, and he played for England from 2016 to 2021, and scored six goals in 32 A matches.

If FC Seoul embraces Lingard, it will have two English Premier League players. Ki Sung-yueng, who recently renewed his contract with FC Seoul, joined Swansea City in 2012 and played in the Premier League through 2020 after playing for Sunderland and Newcastle United. The Premier League record is 12 goals in a total of 160 matches. If a “ki-lin combination” is formed, the two will have 41 goals in 342 matches.

The two players also played together in August 2014 when Ki Sung-yueng wore a Swansea jersey and scored against Manchester United in the opening match of the 2014/15 season of the Premier League. Ki and Lingard were listed on the starting list for Swansea and Manchester United, respectively. In the match, Lingard was replaced by an injury in the 24th minute, and Ki scored the first goal after receiving a pass from Sigurdsson in the 28th minute. Rooney scored the equalizer, but Sagurdsson’s winning goal scored Manchester United’s victory away to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, if Lingard joins FC Seoul, it will be the first time in 23 years since Darren Atkinson (then Daejeon Citizen) in 2001, the first Premier Leaguer to enter the K League, a former Manchester United and England national team player will come to the K League. Born in 1968, Atkinson finished his career after one game from Daejeon and four games from Jeonbuk Hyundai, and died in 2016 in his hometown during excessive police crackdown. The police who shot Atkinson with a Taser and hit him in the head have since been sentenced to eight years in prison.
