Local claims have been made that Scotland Celtic, which recently recruited Oh Hyeon-gyu (22), will continue their interest in signing Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) into the summer. Celtic is one of the most active teams in recruiting Cho Kyu-sung.
Reporter Pete O’Rourke, a British transfer market expert, said in an interview with Give Me Sports on the 30th (Korean time), “Since Celtic signed Oh Hyun-kyu, who seems to be a good player, Giorgos Zakumakis has a way to leave.” “After Zakumakis left, this summer I am sure interest in Cho Kyu-sung will grow again in the process of reinforcing the strikers.”
Although the recruitment of Cho Kyu-sung through the transfer market this winter was virtually canceled, it is predicted that Cho Kyu-sung will still be on Celtic’s list of recruits after the season is over.
Previously, Celtic was one of the clubs that wanted to recruit Cho Kyu-sung throughout the winter transfer window. According to reporter Fabrizio Romano, a transfer market expert, he even proposed adding a 50% cell-on clause to the transfer fee of 3 million euros (approximately 4.1 billion won). This means that if Cho Kyu-seong leaves Celtic and transfers to another club in the future, half of the transfer fee will be guaranteed to Jeonbuk. It is reported that Ji-Sung Park, technical director of Jeonbuk, received this offer from Celtic in London, England. 온라인바카라
However, Cho Kyu-sung received interest from other clubs such as Mainz in the German Bundesliga, and after struggling with the timing of the transfer, he eventually decided to stay in Jeonbuk instead of advancing to Europe. It is said that clubs such as Park Ji-seong and Kim Sang-shik recommended a summer transfer rather than winter. Celtic, whose recruitment of Cho Kyu-seong was canceled, embraced Oh Hyun-gyu, who was promoting the recruitment together. Oh Hyun-kyu is already receiving favorable reviews from the locals for playing magpie before his European debut.
Of course, in order for Celtic’s interest to continue in the summer, it is a prerequisite to show a steady presence in the first half of this season. If he continues his steady performance in the K-League, it could lead to love calls from various European clubs, including Celtic, in line with his performance in the last World Cup in Qatar.
Give Me Sports, which delivered O’Rourke’s interview, said, “Cho Kyu-seong received attention from Celtic, Rangers, Mainz, and Minnesota United for his brilliant performance in his team and national team, but the transfer was canceled.” “Celtic’s interest in Cho Kyu-seong, at least for now, It seems to have cooled off, but it would not be surprising to promote the recruitment of Cho Kyu-sung again this summer to strengthen the team’s strength.”
