Lee ‘strong contender’ if PSG return…Dutch 20-year-old diva to join Leipzig on loan to complete move?
Xavi Simons has expressed his satisfaction with his loan spell at RB Leipzig.
Transfer market pundit Fabrizio Romano published an interview with Simmons on his social media accounts on Monday (April 29). “In football, you can’t predict anything. You never know what’s going to happen,” he said, adding, “Coming to Leipzig is like coming home. I want to be successful and I want to leave my mark on the club.”
Simmons is a Dutch prospect born in 2003. He can play in all areas of the field and has the ability to dribble and pass well. He has already been called up to the Dutch national soccer team and is expected to be a resource for both the present and future.
Simmons broke into the Barcelona youth academy in 2010, and nine years later he joined the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) under-19 team. He made his first-team debut for PSG, but failed to make an impact. He made six appearances in the 2021-22 Ligue 1 season, but only one start.
Eventually, Xavi Simmons’ time with PSG came to an end. He joined PSV Eindhoven as a free agent. Upon joining, he made an immediate impact. In 34 Dutch Eredivisie games, he was a regular starter, scoring 19 goals and providing eight assists.온라인카지노
This led to PSG re-signing him. Simmons signed a contract until the summer of 2027. However, he didn’t immediately break into the first team roster. Instead, he went on loan to Leipzig. And the move worked out perfectly. As of the start of the season, Simmons is a key member of Leipzig’s core. He has three goals and four assists in five Bundesliga games.
Naturally, the possibility of a full transfer has arisen. According to Romano, Leipzig’s director said, “We want Simmons to stay with the team until the summer of 2024 and beyond. He has made a very good start and we are convinced that he has a good relationship with the club.”
If Simmons does return to PSG from his loan this season, he will be a strong competitor for Lee Kang-in. Lee can play both in the center and on the flanks.
