Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, said on social network service (SNS) on the 9th of last month (Korean time), “Koku is moving to Benfica.” The contract will be signed for 5 years until June. The transfer allowance clause (buyout) is 120 million euros (approximately 167 billion won),” said the news.
Koku is a midfielder who has been active for Feyenoord since his professional debut in 2018. He is called the type of playmaker who is good at creating threatening opportunities while stabbing sharp passes with outstanding techniques such as sophisticated ball control while being able to play both the second and third lines. He is also equipped with his scoring ability to the extent that he can complete the finish himself in case of emergency.
In fact, despite the young age of 18 in his first season, he played 12 official games and scored 4 goals and 4 assists, performing beyond expectations. Since then, he has been active as a main player in earnest. During his five years at Feyenoord, he played 175 games for Feyenoord, recording 27 assists in 32 appearances.
Such Koku was expected to transfer with Arner Slot (44, Netherlands) coach last month as a strong candidate for Tottenham’s new command tower. Locally, it was enough to be included in Tottenham’s best eleven for the new season.
Koku, however, had no transfer to Tottenham as manager Slot remained. In the midst of this, he recently received a ‘love call’ from Benfica and took on a new challenge in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. Already, while he was about to leave for a medical test, a photo of him meeting fans at the airport was released through social media.
