Transfer Profile: Lazar Arsić

Transfer Profile: Seoul E-Lands Lazar Arsic

Seoul E-Land have been very active in the transfer window this year. With a lot of players coming and going from the capital, this could be a big year for the Leopards. Seoul have brought in three foreign players this year. One player, who looks to make a mark in Seoul, is Serbian attacking midfielder, Lazar Arsić. Let's look further into the career of Seoul E-Land's new number 9, as he looks to set the K League 2 ablaze in the 2020 season.

European Journeyman

Lazar Arsić started his career in 2009, at FK Obilićin Serbia. The 18-year-old Lazar made a great impact with 28 games under his belt at his first club. Arsić spent a little under two years in his home country, before Hungarian side Vasas Sc came calling. Arsić has plied his trade in several countries, including, Serbia, Hungary, Greece, and China. The most noticeable period of his early career was playing for FK Radnički Niš in the Serbian Superliga. The strong-minded midfielder gained a cult-like following in his two years at the club. Scoring over 18 goals in 56 appearances.

Lazar's last club was in China's League One, with Meizhou Hakka football club. However, he made only 15 appearances for the side, before Seoul came calling for his services. A player who has played all over, Arsić will bring experience, and character to the young Seoul E-Land side with his knowledge of European and Asian football.

A Vital Piece in the Puzzle

Korean football fans will know all too well the name of Seoul E-Land's manager, Chung Jung-yong. A visionary, who got the Korean- U20 team to the world cup final back in the summer of 2019. The boss will have picked his team carefully, and with a lot of consideration. If you look at the other players from abroad that Seoul have brought in, you can see his intentions in the league. The boss will look for quick, fast, attacking football. Bringing in the likes of Leandro, and German veteran Richard Sukutu-Pasu will help the side in their climb up the table. Whatever formation the boss will choose, either a 4-3-3, or a 4-4-2, we will see all three foreign players heavily throughout the season.

Arsić loves to attack, but he is also able to drop back and send the ball to the forward players. If he can play behind Leandro, and Sukutu-Pasu, he could help in distributing the ball upfront, as well as being in the thick of it on a heavy attack. The three players have looked as if they are gelling well in the side. Posts from their social media accounts show a hard-working and dedicated group of players. Fans will hope to also see this on the pitch. He plays as a box to box midfielder, with a lot of energy, and stamina. This will be vital for Seoul during the hot summer months in Korea. Seoul last year, had a problem with counter-attacks and defending after a missed attacking opportunity. If Lazar can be there to support the defence, then they can stop the leakage of goals, like they had last season.

Another Eastern European superstar?

We have seen the likes of Dejan Damjanović, who has won both league and FA Cup titles in his time in Korea, make a true mark in the game of Korean football. The Montenegrin is also known for scoring against England in two different games, one being in front of a Wembley crowd.  Also, more recently, Incheon United's Stefan Mugoša, who is making a real impact in Incheon's side. His position in the squad helped massively towards Incheon's 2019 survival. In a league where mostly South American talent comes in, Lazar Arsić could become one of a few Eastern European players who can really dominate in the league. Seoul E-Land fans will welcome the Serbian with open arms and will be amongst some of the most passionate fans in the K League. If he can be part of a special year for Seoul E-Land, then he will truly make a name for himself in Korea.

From looking at Seoul E-Land's training in recent weeks. Lazar Arsić looks motivated, dedicated, and ready to take the league by storm. This could be a big year for the Leopards, and Lazar Arsić could be a catalyst in that success.

Seoul E-Land will start their 2020 K League 2 campaign away to Jeju United on May 9th at 1:30pm
