Luuk de Jong has arrived in Barcelona and has already been talking about what he can bring to Ronald Koeman’s side during his loan spell at the Camp Nou.

The 31-year-old says he can offer the Catalan giants another dimension in attack, particularly late on in games.

“I am tall, I am a good header of the ball. As I already said before, I am a player with a different skillset.

“Koeman knows that he can use me in the final minutes when he needs a player that’s tall and good with his head. That’s the kind of player I am. As I showed in Sevilla, I also have other aspects to my game.”

De Jong is expected to train on Monday with the Barcelona squad, although it’ll be something of a threadbare squad with players away on international duty.

The striker could then make his debut on Saturday against Sevilla, if the game goes ahead, and is already looking forward to facing his former team.

He explained, “I’m not worried. I’m looking forward to playing with all my teammates. I’m looking forward to playing against Sevilla. And I hope to win also.”
