Royce Openda, who has been highly anticipated as a super prospect to lead the Belgian national team, has joined RB Leipzig.

On the 14th (Korean time), Leipzig announced 토토사이트the signing of Offenda through its official website. His contract lasted 5 years and numbered 17. Although not included in the announcement, according to local reports, the transfer fee is 42 million euros (about 60 billion won) plus a conditional option, which is the highest amount in Leipzig’s history.

Offenda is from Cliffbrugge, a strong Belgian province. He made his Brugge debut when he was only 18 years old. Two years later, he was loaned to Pittesser in the Netherlands, and he bloomed in full bloom by scoring a total of 28 goals, including 19 league goals in the 2021-2022 season. In particular, in the group stage of the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa Conference League, it was placed in a group with French powerhouse Staderen and English powerhouse Tottenham Hotspur, and played an important role in surviving to second place in the group by eliminating Tottenham.

His last year was spent with Lens in France, where he showed improvement once again, scoring 21 league goals.

Openda, who is not big but has excellent speed, breakthrough power and decisiveness, is expected to be a ‘upper compatible’ recruitment that can replace Timo Werner, who is a star striker of a similar style but has recently fallen into sluggishness.

He is a player who should play the role of a next-generation striker in the Belgian national team, where strikers are in short supply. He has recorded 9 goals and 2 assists so far. Belgium is experiencing problems in offensive power as former ace Eden Hazard is in a long slump, Dries Mertens is getting older, and Romelu Lukaku is suffering from a long slump. At the ‘2022 World Cup in Qatar’ held last year, he was eliminated with only one goal in all three group stage matches.

Offenda said: “I am very happy to join Leipzig. They are one of the strongest teams in the Bundesliga and regularly compete in the Champions League. They also won consecutive cup competitions. I wanted to take my next step in this promising team. It will suit a striker like me very well.”
