Overseas club recruiting battles surrounding striker Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai), who played a big role in the 2022 Qatar World Cup, seem to be heating up as time goes on.
British media Sky Sports said on the 8th (Korean time), “Scotland Celtic has offered a transfer fee of 3 million pounds (approximately 4.5 billion won) to sign Korean national striker Cho Kyu-sung.”
“Cho Kyu-sung’s team, Jeonbuk, received a similar offer from Mainz in Germany,” he added.
Celtic, one of the most prestigious clubs in Scotland, is famous for its team that has consistently built relationships with East Asian players. Ki Sung-yueng and Cha Doo-ri of Korea, Nakamura Shunsuke, Mizuno Koki (Japan), Jung Zhi, and Duwei (China) all took to the pitch with Celtic.
Even today, as many as seven Japanese players, including Kyōgo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda, and Leo Hatate, play in green striped uniforms on a white background. Among them, Maeda and Furuhashi are compe titors who will have to compete for a place in the team if Cho Kyu-seong joins Celtic.
Australian national coach Engie Postecoglu (57) is holding the baton. He served as the Australian youth national team, A national team, and Melbourne Victory coach, and led Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan for three years from 2018. As a ‘Japanese expert’ who is well versed in East Asian football situations, Cho Kyu-seong has plenty of room to feel the charm as his first destination in Europe.토토사이트
Sky Sports also reported Celtic’s interest in K-League top scorer Cho Kyu-sung last month. “Cho Kyu-seong showed off his brilliant concentration by scoring multiple goals in the Qatar World Cup group stage match against Ghana,” he said.
According to the media, Ferencvaros, the winningest team in the Hungarian professional soccer league, is also interested in signing Cho Kyu-sung. However, it seems that it has not yet come to specific recruitment proposals such as transfer fees. In addition, Turkiye Fenerbahce, Burnley in England, and Stade Rennes in France are rising and falling on the ground.
