After 03:30 this last morning, FC Barcelona finally gave official status to a signed signing, that of Luuk de Jong. The 31-year-old Dutchman lands at the Camp Nou on loan from Sevilla and with a non-mandatory purchase option. In addition, the culé box fully assumes its file.
" Luuk de Jong is a powerful striker with great capabilities for the offensive game. His ability for aerial play (1.88 meters) and his corpulence, which allows him to function within the rival area, stand out. Intelligent on the pitch, he can act as the only reference offensive of the team or accompanied thanks to its good associative capacity , " says the statement issued by the Catalan entity.
The experienced striker will fill the gap left by Antoine Griezmann, who also in the final stretch of the market was finally loaned to his home club, Atlético de Madrid. Both operations were already closed on the horn, although without the need for the League to grant an extension .
Recruited by the Hispanics in the summer of 2019, De Jong has accumulated a total of 19 goals and five assists in the 94 games he has accumulated. Now, he will face the challenge of succeeding in a squad in which he will meet a coach who knows him perfectly, his compatriot Ronald Koeman.
