The official account of the Spanish League announced the signing of Dutch striker Luke de Jong from the ranks of Sevilla, on loan until the end of the current season. The official account of the Spanish League, via Twitter, confirmed the arrival of the player’s official papers within the specified time.
Barcelona were linked with a seasoned striker over the past 24 hours and tried to sign Edinson Cavani before Manchester United blocked the transfer, then they moved to Joao Felix as part of a swap deal involving Antoine Griezmann, but Atletico Madrid rejected the proposal..
De Jong comes as Barcelona’s choice to replace Antoine Griezmann, who moved to his former club Atletico Madrid on loan, where Ronald Koeman worked with De Jong in the Dutch national team, and the 31-year-old striker is no longer a key player under Seville coach Julen Lopetegui.
It is noteworthy that Luke de Jong is a Dutch-born player, born in 1990, and plays as a strong striker for the Spanish club Seville.
