Liverpool should sign promising South Korean center back Kim Ji-Soo (Seongnam FC), according to a local newspaper.

England’s ‘’ said on June 6 (KST), “Liverpool must find the ideal successor to Joel Matip at the U-20 World Cup, following in the footsteps of Darwin Núñez and Elling Holland. One of the biggest surprises of the tournament was South Korea, who beat strong youth teams like France, Ecuador and Nigeria to reach the final four. One of their brightest talents is Kim Ji-Soo, who could be an ideal target for Liverpool.”

Kim was born in 2004 and is a center back with a lot of potential. He made his professional debut last year when he signed a semi-professional contract with Seongnam. He made 19 league appearances last season, earning the trust of coach Kim Nam-il. He was selected for Team K League last summer and showed his quality in a friendly against Tottenham Hotspur.

This season, he hasn’t played much for the club as he was away at the FIFA U-20 World Cup Argentina 2023. Nevertheless, Brentford were interested in his potential. They’ve even made a formal offer.

Brentford’s eye was spot on. Kim Ji-soo has been making his presence felt at the U-20 World Cup. Alongside Choi Seok-hyun (Dankook University) in the back line, Kim Ji-soo has defied his age with his composure and steadiness, helping his team to a top-four finish. Having a center back like Kim Ji-soo is one of the reasons why coach Kim Eun-jung is able to build a solid defensive line and then launch counterattacks.

His performance caught the attention of Liverpool’s local newspaper, “Over the years, the U-20 World Cup has been a tournament that has produced great stars. At the 2019 tournament in Poland, Núñez and Holland made their mark for the first time. Players such as Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona also made their mark at the tournament,” he said, arguing that it’s important to keep an eye on up-and-coming players. 토토사이트

He emphasized that Kim Ji-soo should be on the radar. “South Korea impressively reached the semifinals of the tournament and will face Italy. We will now see many young Korean batsmen attracting interest from top European clubs. Among them, Kim Ji-Soo could be an ideal target for Liverpool. He has impressed with his composure on the ball and excellent reading of the game.”

The analyst also suggested that Kim Min-Jae would be ideal for Liverpool’s current center back position. “Bringing in a young center back like Kim would be a perfect fit for Liverpool. Joe Gomez is struggling with injuries and Matip is 32 years old. Kim could be a future starter at Anfield. They should make a move for him now before he moves to another European club and his transfer fee inflates.”
