"The FC Barcelona and the Seville FC have arrived to an agreement for the cession of Luuk of Jong until 30 June 2022. The Barcelona club does charge of the index card of the player and has a free option of purchase". Of this way announced the FC Barcelona in full morning of 1 September that Luuk of Jong will play to loan in the Camp Nou until 2022, when the culés will have an option of purchase no compulsory.

The group barcelonista does , therefore, with the descarte of the Seville for his forward. After the arrival of Rafa Mir pertinent of the Huesca, Julen Lopetegui signalled to the Dutch like the third option as '9' after the Spanish and Youssef In-Nesyri, by what became prescindible. The Barça has taken advantage of of this by request of Ronald Koeman, that has chosen him to have an alternative with a distinct profile for the forward.

As it signals the communiqué of the Barcelona, "Luuk of Jong (31 years) arrives to the Barça after having played 69 parties in the League, with the Seville, the season 2019/20 and the 2020/21. A time in which it has marked 10 goals and has done two assistances". They are not numbers ilusionantes, but rather all the contrary, since it has marked very few goals to be '9'. Thus, of him it expects especially work, fight, game of backs and game by up.

The Dutch is a '9' strong, high and that it can manage like only reference or in a double leading. In spite of his height and corpulencia, has a good game of feet and stands out for associating well with his mates. Besides, it goes well by up, it is intelligent in his movements and plays well of backs to goal. His elder has to is the goal, since it fails too much to be tip, something that has condemned him in a Seville that has finished descartándole.

Of Jong, another alternative to play of '9'

Koeman Has thought in him for his Barcelona after the course of Antoine Griezmann. It is an opposite profile to the of the French, that will have his more natural relief in Ousmane Dembélé or in Ansu Fati when they are recovered. Luuk Will compete with Martin Braithwaite and the Kun Agüero (when it was recovered) by the minutes like leading centre. It will be necessary to see which role gives him his trainer and if this operation finish being beneficial for the Barcelona.
