Is this the start of the goalkeeper chain movement?
Goalkeeper is a special position. Once selected as the starting goalkeeper, participation is guaranteed. On the contrary, if the main goalkeeper transfers or leaves for a long time, the team will suffer a big blow. There are signs of a chain move of goalkeepers in this transfer market.
First of all, Song Bum-geun finishes his life in Jeonbuk Hyundai and transfers to J-League Shonan Bellmare (Japan). Shonan Bellmare and Jeonbuk Province have made official the transfer of Song Bum-keun. Starting with 30 games in the 2018 season, Song Beom-geun played more than 27 games every year for 5 seasons until last season. He was the immovable Jeonbuk starting goalkeeper. Based on these performances, he also accompanied the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Song Bum-keun, whose contract with Jeonbuk expired at the end of last season, had a strong will to go abroad. He couldn’t catch Jeonbuk either.
Jeonbuk immediately started looking for a replacement. Jeonbuk’s choice was Jeong Min-ki, who showed a high level of saving ability at FC Anyang. 토토 Despite spending the transfer fee, Jeonbuk brought Jeong Min-ki. Jeong Min-gi, who made his professional debut in Anyang in the 2018 season, showed a steep growth by leaping to the main player from the 2021 season. He has been praised for being the next national team goalkeeper.
In addition, Jeonbuk is expected to compete with goalkeeper Kim Jeong-hoon, born in 2001, who showed outstanding skills at Kimcheon Sangmu last season. Another Jeonbuk goalkeeper, Lee Beom-soo, is known to be continuing contract renewal negotiations with Jeonbuk. On the other hand, Anyang, who left Min-ki Jeong, is contemplating whether to infuse a new goalkeeper from the outside or appoint a goalkeeper from within the team.
Same with FC Seoul. Goalkeeper Yang Han-bin, who firmly guarded the back door, was also receiving attention from J-League Cerezo Osaka. The Japanese media ‘Sports Hochi’ predicted the possibility of a transfer, saying, ‘Cereso is conducting last-minute negotiations with Hanbin Yang’. Cerezo is also a team where another Korean goalkeeper Kim Jin-hyun has been active as the starting goalkeeper for a long time.
With the departure of the main goalkeeper, Seoul was on fire as well. They are looking for a new goalkeeper. It is known that goalkeepers who performed well in the second division as well as the first division were put on the recruitment list. Depending on their decision, the goalkeepers may move again.
