Interest in Cho Kyu-seong (24) of Jeonbuk Hyundai continues.
British media ‘Sky Sports’ broke news on the 8th (Korean time) and reported, “Celtic has offered to recruit Cho Kyu-sung, a striker of the Korean national team, for 3 million pounds (approximately 4.5 billion won).”
Cho Kyu-seong made a big success last year by scoring two goals alone in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar group stage match against Ghana.
In the game against Uruguay, he fought against tall defenders taller than 190cm, and in the game against Ghana, he competed with Mohammed Salisu 토토사이트 (Southampton), who is playing a big role in the English Premier League, overcoming the ball in the air. And in the match against Portugal, a strong player in Europe, he dominated the air against defenders active on the European stage. Korea, which played mainly with short passes, succeeded in an effective attack that caught the opponent off guard with a long pass that took advantage of Cho Kyu-sung’s height.
It is only natural that many clubs showed interest in Cho Kyu-sung, who is young and full of potential. Recently, Mainz was chosen as the most likely destination.
The British media ‘Evening Standard’ predicted that “Mainz is ahead of the Scottish Celtic or American teams in the competition to recruit Cho Kyu-sung.” Mainz has national soccer team midfielder Lee Jae-seong (30).
He continued, “Jeonbuk’s technical director Park Ji-seong, who played as a player for Manchester United, is currently negotiating a transfer in London, England. Cho Kyu-seong wants to complete the transfer process as soon as possible before the Bundesliga league schedule resumes.”
But soon Mainz’s interest waned. German media ‘Kicker’ reported, “Mainz was definitely interested in signing Cho Kyu-sung. However, after he investigated the conditions related to the funding, this interest quickly cooled.” In the meantime, he began to attract interest from Celtic again.
Meanwhile, Cho Kyu-sung’s dream is to advance overseas. In an interview last year, when asked about the possibility of advancing to Europe, he said, “If you are a player, it is your dream to meet on the world stage. I have dreamed of it since I was young.” He expressed his hopes of entering Europe.
