Courtship of Uhm Ji-Sung has begun in earnest

Swansea City’s courtship of Uhm Ji-Sung (Gwangju FC) has begun in earnest. Swansea City is actively pursuing the signing of Uhm Ji-sung, with the manager actively courting the player’s side.

“Swansea City, where Ki Sung-yueng played, has made an official offer to Gwangju to sign Um Ji-sung,” a soccer source said on Nov. 27, adding, “The terms proposed by Swansea City to Gwangju are a transfer fee of $100 million (1.4 billion won) and a sell-on clause. This is quite high compared to the usual rate for sell-ons.”

Uhm made his professional debut with Gwangju in 2021 after playing for the Gwangju Youth Kumho Go. In his first season, Uhm had high expectations as a rookie, scoring four goals and one assist in 37 games in the K League 1. He showed off his explosive speed alongside teammate Uhm Won-sang.

Although the team was relegated to the K-League 2 the following year, Uhm scored nine goals and provided one assist in 28 games. 안전놀이터 With the addition of Uhm, Gwangju was promoted to the K League 1 in 2023, and he became the star of the show.

Last season,

Gwangju produced their best results under head coach Lee Jung-hyo. Uhm continued his fierce form with five goals and three assists in 28 games. This season, he has two goals and three assists in 15 games.

His strength is his explosive speed. He is also highly regarded for his work rate and shooting ability. He has been in fierce form for Lee Jung-hyo’s Gwangju.

The reason why Uhm Ji-sung is so eager to play in Europe is because he hasn’t had many opportunities in the past. He missed the U20 World Cup due to the coronavirus pandemic, and he also missed the Asian Games due to injury. To make matters worse, he was denied the opportunity to compete in the Olympics, which prevented him from developing his skills.

He had already been offered a move to the Major League Soccer (MLS), but he stayed to play for Kwangju. He had already turned down a chance to play in the United States after communicating with the club. The reason for his strong desire to play in Europe is simple: if he postpones it any longer due to military service, his future could suffer.


Swansea City are serious about signing him. “Swansea City have made an increased offer to Gwangju for Uhm Ji-Sung,” said a source, “and have analyzed his play through the club’s system. As a result, manager Luke Williams has also conveyed to Gwangju that he wants to join the club.”

Of course, Gwangju isn’t going to let go of Uhm easily.

“Gwangju wants a high transfer fee for Uhm Ji-sung due to the recent problems with the financial stabilization system,” the source said. “However, 온라인 슬롯 Uhm Ji-sung is not hiding his desire to go to Europe as he has been dedicated since he was a youth player and helped Gwangju reach the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League.”
