After returning to England from his loan spell with FC Seoul, Hwang Eui-jo (30-Nottingham Forest) received some unwelcome news. Nottingham Forest have reportedly prioritized signing a goalkeeper this summer.
“Nottingham Forest are looking to add four key players to their squad, according to British outlet Football Insider. They are looking for a goalkeeper, a central defender, a left winger and a striker,” and that “manager Steve Cooper, 43, is keen to add a striker who can help them survive in the Premier League next season.” 토토사이트
After warming up in the K League, Hwang Ui-jo returned to Nottingham Forest. Hwang joined Nottingham Forest last summer from Bordeaux. He has yet to make his Premier League debut, having left the club shortly after joining. He chased the ‘Premier League dream’ in Greece and South Korea, but things went from bad to worse.
After a difficult year away from England, he returned to his club and was greeted by an influx of competition. Nottingham Forest already have a number of talented strikers. Tywar Awooniyi (25) and Brennan Johnson (22) were the mainstays of the team last season, while Premier League proven Chris Wood (31) completed a full transfer. Meanwhile, Cooper is looking for another striker.
‘Football Insider’ says: “Nottingham Forest need to sell players before making any signings. Jonjo Shelvey, 31, Emmanuel Dennis, 25, and Remo Fowler, 31, are up for sale.” The outlet did not categorize Hwang Ui-Jo as a target for release. However, the addition of a frontline striker would only further narrow his options.
It gets worse. Hwang is a proven striker who scored double-digit goals in the Ligue 1 for two consecutive seasons, but he struggled at Olympiakos and failed to impress Cooper with his performances in the K League. Add to that the recent leak of intimate videos of his personal life, and you have a recipe for chaos on and off the field.
Meanwhile, Hwang Ui-jo, who left for England on the 2nd, recently appeared on Nottingham Forest’s official YouTube channel. He was in good spirits and greeted his teammates, while also doing physical training to prepare for the upcoming season.
