‘Location anxiety’ Hwang Eui-jo reignited rumors of MLS transfer

The rumor of Hwang Eui-jo’s transfer to the United States has risen again.

Greek media ‘Gazzetta’ said, “Atlanta United and Minnesota United are showing interest in Olympiacos striker Hwang Ui-jo. His value is estimated at 5.4 million dollars (approximately 6.7 billion won).”

He is Korea’s ‘signboard’ striker. After a great performance at the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, he became one of Bentuho’s top players. Thanks to his performance at this time, he succeeded in advancing to Europe in 2019 and became a key player in Girondins de Bordeaux. In the first year of his transfer, he stood out by scoring 6 league goals, and after that, his stock price increased by succeeding in scoring double digits in the league for two consecutive seasons.

Ahead of this season, transfer rumors arose. This is because Bordeaux was relegated to the second division and the possibility of relegation to the third division was discussed due to financial problems. In the end, the sale of key players was inevitable to solve the financial problem, and Hwang Ui-jo was also one of the candidates. 온라인바카라

Fortunately, the third division was relegated, but Hwang Ui-jo’s transfer was not prevented. Many clubs, including Brest, Wolverhampton and Nantes, have expressed interest in him. After quite slow negotiations, Nottingham Forest was confirmed as the destination. Hwang Eui-jo, who entered the English stage in this way, immediately left for loan to affiliate club Olympiacos.

There were many expectations. He was a top-notch striker in French Ligue 1, but was expected to do even better in the lower Greek league. In addition, since Hwang In-beom was on the same team, it seemed that it would not be difficult to adapt. However, his life in Greece is not smooth. He has so far played 12 matches, including cup competitions, but has not scored a single goal. Let alone the bench, he was completely excluded from the starting list from October of last year. He came on as a substitute in the recent Greek Cup, but again went goalless.

Because it is a loan form, he leaves Olympiacos at the end of the season. But that doesn’t make things any better. Because the competition in Nottingham will be even fiercer.

In this situation, transfer rumors came up again. His destination was America. This isn’t the first time MLS has shown interest. Minnesota also approached last summer. At the time, the French media ‘Lequipe’ said, “Bordeaux received a transfer fee of 5 million euros (about 6.7 billion won) for Hwang Eui-jo from Minnesota United of the American Professional Football (MLS). However, Bordeaux wanted a higher amount and Minnesota’s offer was rejected. refused.”

The possibility of transfer cannot be confirmed. It is unknown how aggressive Minnesota and Atlanta will be for Hwang Ui-jo, who is out of form, and he may not be interested in going to the United States on Hwang’s side, as he has already rejected it once.
