European clubs are competing to recruit Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai).
The British ‘Sky Sports’ reported on the 8th (Korean time) that “Celtic of Scotland offered 3 million pounds (approximately 4.5 billion won) for the scout of Cho Kyu-sung.” 토토사이트
Cho Kyu-sung emerged as a star at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. At the time of the substitution, he emerged as a social media star with his beautiful appearance, and in the second game of the group stage, he proved his skills by scoring the best multi-goal in the Korean World Cup against Ghana.
Moreover, in the K-League this season, he continued his good performance at Sangmu Kim Cheon and Jeonbuk Hyundai, becoming the top scorer and included in the K-League Best 11.
Currently, European clubs are interested in Cho Kyu-sung. Recently, Mainz, where Lee Jae-seong (31) is active, has been active. Due to the injuries and sluggishness of the main strikers, they wanted to reinforce the front line, but Cho Kyu-seong was dropped. According to England reports, the transfer fee is 2.5 million pounds (approximately 3.9 billion won).
However, Celtic offered a higher transfer fee and took the upper hand in the competition for Cho Kyu-sung. The media explained that “Mainz is not ready to pay a transfer fee higher than 2.5 million pounds” as the reason, and “Celtic showed interest in Cho Kyu-sung from December after the second game of the group stage.”
Celtic has been paying attention to Asian players from the past. In the past, Shunsuke Nakamura (Japan) played an active role, and Ki Sung-yueng and Cha Doo-ri also played together. And currently, Leo Hatate (25), Kyogo Furuhashi (27), Daizen Maeda (25, Japan), and Aaron Mui (32, Australia) are active.
