“Enrique wants to turn Lee into a playmaker”…MF chances up

Lee Kang-in could become a playmaker for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), according to an analysis.
“PSG’s rebuilding still lacks an element that can initiate offensive play,” said French media outlet Le Parisien on July 21 (KST). This role should be entrusted to new signing Lee Kang-in,” arguing that Lee should develop into the team’s ace.
Since joining PSG in July, Lee has played a total of four games for the club, including a preseason match. Luis Enrique has deployed Lee primarily on the left flank. It’s not an awkward position. Lee played both left and right wing forward under Jürgen Klinsmann at Mallorca last season.
However, the roles are different. Lee played primarily as a left wing forward for Mallorca, switching between the flanks and the left flank. In a nutshell, Mallorca’s tactic was that the ball would eventually be distributed to Lee on the counterattack, and he would send in a cross from the left flank for Bedat Murki to finish.
However, Lee’s role at PSG was different. For starters, PSG doesn’t have a target man like Mourinho. Instead, Lee’s main role was to exchange passes with the wingbacks on the left and right flanks, or to cut in from the flanks to the center.
It’s a tactic that doesn’t play to his strengths. Lee’s style of play is to shake up the opposition from the flanks and send in crosses with sharp kicks, or to work his way into the middle of the field and deliver piercing passes to attackers.
Over the past four games, however, we haven’t seen much of that. There are a number of reasons for this, but the absence of a left or right wing forward in the team has been a big one. Until the last game, PSG were very much in danger of losing Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid, who have been strongly linked to the club. Luckily, PSG reached an agreement with Mbappe and he’s back in the team. Neymar has left the team. With the addition of Ousmane Dembele, they now have a left and right wing.
As a result, Lee’s position is likely to change. A move from the flanks to the center would allow him to play to his strengths. “According to our sources, PSG want to turn Lee into a playmaker,” Le Parisien reports. “With Lionel Messi and Neymar leaving the club, PSG need to find a new chance creator,” the publication said.
“PSG are looking for a rare pearl and have been thinking about Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva for a long time. The deal fell through when they decided there weren’t enough opportunities. Enrique trusts him, and today’s staff wants to transform him into a playmaker.”
It is very likely that Lee will be given a spot in the central midfield. Enrique primarily utilizes a 4-3-3 formation. He has already played in a 4-3-3 formation since his arrival at PSG. Mbappe, Gonzalo Higuain, and Dembele will form the top three. 온라인바카라
The back of the three midfield spots will be held by Manuel Ugarte. The left of the two remaining spots is being contested by Vitinha and Fabian Luis. The right midfield spot has so far been held by Warren Zaire-Emery. However, Zaire-Emery was born in 2006 and is still developing. Therefore, it seems more likely that Lee Kang-in will be deployed on the right.
The possibility of a midfield role for Lee has also been raised locally. The French ‘L’Equipe’ reported on the 15th that “Lee Kang-in has only been used as a winger since his arrival. However, he has already played in central midfield for Mallorca. He can be an option in any position PSG wants. He has played well in La Liga, where the tempo is high and the pressure is intense, and he has a good chance of winning contests. He is active, has good composure and does well when deployed in the center. He needs to show more to make people forget about Neymar.”
