Ji Dong-Won’s Profile in 2010 (start of a new game)

Scout Report (Steve Worsley)

Ji Dong-Won has just been bought by Sunderland in real-life, so clearly people agree with FM! Seriously though, Dong-Won is an incredible player that I feel is often overlooked by most people, he is a fantastic target man and I could easily see him playing for a mid-table Premier League side for many years.

In terms of a national job, he is one of the few good young players in South Korea right now and he will definitely be one of their key players in a few years, alongside Park Chu Young and Chung Yong Lee, the attacking trio that will make up part of South Korea’s new team when the guard changes from Park Ji-Sung and co.

My best buy rating: 7.5/10

Ji could easily start for any team in the Premier League outside of the big six (Man United, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool).  £2.7M is, in my opinion, a very good price for a player that could spearhead the front line of a mid-table Premier League club.

However, there is still good reason for you to buy him if you are a good club. He may not start, but he would definitely be a good bench warmer and a capable back-up for the top quality strikers of a top quality team, he is also very likely to increase in value so I reckon 9 times out of 10 you can sell him on for a good profit if you do want to get rid of him.

Note: Chunnam normally ask for a 10% profit of next sale clause, so make sure you try to squeeze every penny from a buying club!

    Cheers guys, I stumbled upon him when I was trawling U-21 teams in a previous save, I thought he looked good but thought nothing of it, but now I have started doing this I thought I would check him out again and when I saw the future profile on fm-base I couldn’t resist putting him up, it was a shame I couldn’t recommend him to people sooner as I feel he could have benefited a lot of teams if people had been able to snap him up earlier…
