Brentford, which sent a love call to ‘Korean defensive prospect’ Kim Ji-soo (Seongnam FC), is quickly building a squad for next season.
English Premier League (EPL) Brentford is trying to recruit Kim Ji-soo, drawing great attention from the domestic soccer world. An official from Seongnam admitted, “It is true that we have received an official offer. The conditions reported in the media are also roughly correct.
Kim Ji-soo is a defender born in 2004 who is growing through the national team by age. He signed a semi-professional contract with Seongnam last year when he turned 18 with superior physical strength of 192 cm and 84 kg. At the time, coach Kim Nam-il, who confirmed Kim Ji-soo’s talent early and boldly selected him, explained the advantage, saying, “The way he leads unlike his young age is amazing. Even though he is young, he has stable defense.” In the summer of that year, he was also selected as a team K-League All-Star against Tottenham Hotspur. Coach Kim Sang-shik, who was in charge of Team K League, praised Kim Ji-soo as “a player who comes to mind with Kim Min-jae.”메이저놀이터
Brentford are not yet done with the season, but they are starting to build a squad for next season. As the main goalkeeper David Raya received interest from multiple clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, a replacement was quickly confirmed. Journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European football transfer market, said on Twitter, “Brentford will sign a contract with Mark Flecken (Freiburg). The buyout clause will be activated at the end of the season, and the contract period is five years.”
If Kim Ji-soo wears a Brentford uniform, he has signed a new contract with Mathias Jorgensen, who can work together in the defensive line. His contract expires in the summer of 2025. As part of the club’s long-term project, a new contract was offered and the player accepted. Brentford was promoted to the EPL in the 2021-2022 season and finished in 13th, succeeding in remaining. This season, they have succeeded in entering the mid-table with the current 9th place (53 points). Brentford, who are ultimately aiming for the top spot, are looking at the right players early on to play with.
