‘Career high’ Lee Jae-seong, ‘the highest ransom ever’
Lee Jae-sung took the ‘highest ransom ever’ with ‘Career High’.
‘TransferMarkt’, a statistical media that can check the ransom of soccer players around the world, is conducting ransom updates for major European leagues during the month of March.
The five major leagues were in the order of English Premier League메이저사이트 (EPL, completed on the 17th), Italian Serie A (completed on the 21st), Spanish La Liga (completed on the 23rd), and French Ligue 1 (completed on the 27th). Lastly, all updates were completed as the German Bundesliga was renewed today.
South Korea paid attention to national team midfielder Lee Jae-seong. After leaving Holstein Kiel in the summer of 2021 and transferring to Mainz, he made a smooth landing with 4 goals and 3 assists.
The second season in the Bundesliga. Still, there was no sophomore jinx. Currently, Jae-Sung Lee is leading the Mainz attack with 7 goals and 3 assists in 25 league games. Last month, he was also nominated for the ‘February Player’ selected by the Bundesliga Secretariat.
It peaked after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. He recorded 5 goals and 2 assists in 6 games from the 17th round against Dortmund, which resumed after the World Cup, to the 22nd round against Monchengladbach. Mainz is also looking forward to advancing to the European competition with Lee Jae-sung.
Along with ‘Career High’, ‘the highest ransom ever’ was taken. ‘TransferMarkt’ raised Lee Jae-sung’s ransom from 3 million euros (about 4.2 billion won) to 4 million euros (about 5.6 billion won).
Future trends are also noteworthy. Before returning to Germany after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Lee Jae-seong said, “I’ve dreamed of the EPL stage since I was young. I will do my best without giving up and achieve my goal.” As rumors of transfer have been flowing out little by little like his recent wish, the future is more anticipated.
Lee Jae-sung was called up to the Korean national team, which was newly appointed by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, to play against Colombia and Uruguay. As in Germany, it showed sharp movements. Lee Jae-sung will return to Mainz and focus on the rest of the season.
