Luuk de Jong, born 27 August 1990 in Aigle (Switzerland), started playing football for DZC'68 together with his brother Siem de Jong. Luuk made his professional debut for De Graafschap. In 2009, the striker joined Twente and stayed there until 2012 before leaving for Borussia Mönchengladbach. After two years in Germany, he returned to the Netherlands and PSV Eindhoven.
He joined Sevilla in the summer of 2019, where he spent two seasons before being loaned to FC Barcelona in 2021.
De Jong’s major honours include four editions of the Eredivisie and the Europa League in 2019/20.
He made his full international debut on 9 February 2011, finishing as runner-up in the UEFA Nations League under Ronald Koeman.
Luuk de Jong is a powerful striker who makes a major contribution to the frontline. Being 1.88 metres tall, he is naturally strong in the air and makes his size felt in the opposing area. He is a smart player that can play as an out-and-out centre forward or in a more creative role just behind.
