Warren Zaire-Emery, who could become Lee Kang-in’s partner or competitor, is expected to sign a new contract soon.
Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his SNS on the 27th (Korean time), “Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has almost completed renewing Emery’s contract. He, a gem born in 2006, is evaluated as a suitable player for the PSG club project. “There was a possibility of a swap deal last summer, but he is currently classified as a key player.”
Emery is a promising player born in 2006 and is currently 17 years old. A graduate of the PSG youth academy, he made his first-team debut in the Ligue 1 match between PSG and Clermont Foot in June last year. He was only 16 years, 4 months, and 29 days old at the time. And about six months later he scored his debut goal against Montpellier. He broke the record as the youngest scorer in PSG club history.
He played as a rotation member in 26 Ligue 1 games last season. His average playing time per game is around 35 minutes. Nevertheless, he scored two goals and had a smooth adjustment period.
And this season, he is receiving more opportunities. PSG had a lot of changes this summer. Coach Christophe Galtier stepped down and new coach Luis Enrique took over. Additionally, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe also left. 토토사이트
Instead, a large number of new players joined. Players such as Gonzalo Hamus, Randal Colo Muani, Ousmane Dembele, Bradley Barcola, Lee Kang-in, Sher Ndour, Marco Asensio, Manuel Ugarte, Milan Skriniar, and Lucas Hernández were recruited.
Nevertheless, Emery is in a solid position. He is trusted by Coach Emery and is starting all six league games. He also played full-time in all but one game, averaging 89 minutes per game. As Emery began to show his presence, PSG began renewing his contract. The current contract ends in the summer of 2025.
Emery is likely to become Lee Kang-in’s partner or competitor for the remainder of the season. Coach Enrique currently has Ugarte as a defensive midfielder and has Emery and Vitinha up front. Lee Kang-in played as a side resource at the beginning of the season, but at that time, Mbappe was not playing due to controversy, and it was not long after Dembele and Barcola joined.
Therefore, it is expected that Lee Kang-in will play between the side and center in the future. In this case, Emery becomes Lee Kang-in’s partner and competitor at the same time.
