REVEAL: Ignore Dang Van Lam, Consadole Sapporo want to sign 'another Van' of Vietnam team

Rumors said that Consadole Sapporo was keen on recruiting goalkeeper Dang Van Lam from Thai club Muangthong United, however, it was not true.

Recently, it was said that Consadole Sapporo was looking for a Vietnamese player to strengthen the squad, who would be likely Dang Van Lam.

Nevertheless, with the current situation of the Japanese club, the chance for them to recruit the first-choice goalkeeper of the Vietnam national football team was not possible.

At the moment, Consadole Sapporo had another foreign goalkeeper in their squad namely Gu Sung Yun, who was called to the South Korea national football team. Interestingly, Gu Sung Yun was currently the highest-paid player at the club, earning 500,000 US dollars a year, which was two-time higher than Thai player Chanathip Songkrasin.

As a result, even if Dang Van Lam had an offer from Consadole Sapporo, he ought to consider carefully before deciding to join or not. It was true that the Japanese club wanted to recruit a Vietnamese player, but they preferred a winger instead.

It could be Hoang Anh Gia Lai's Nguyen Van Toan or Song Lam Nghe An's Phan Van Duc. Both of them represented the Vietnam national football team, and their form at the clubs level was relatively stable.

However, in terms of Nguyen Van Toan, it seemed that his club did not want him to play abroad in 2019. They feared that he could lose his form because of unable to play for the first team as the cases of Nguyen Cong Phuong and Nguyen Tuan Anh before.

Because of that, the most possible choice for Consadole Sapporo would be Phan Van Duc, one of the best Vietnamese wingers at present.
