Oh Hyun-gyu goes to Europe, Cho Kyu-seong is likely to stay in Jeonbuk

There is a growing possibility that Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai)’ advance into Europe will be delayed until summer. 

On the 25th, agent Cho Kyu-seong said through this magazine, “It seems that I have talked to the club and caught the strand to stay. (The player and the club) seem to have discussed it sufficiently,” he said. From the next day, Oh Hyun-gyu’s move to Celtic gained momentum.”

Cho Kyu-sung is the biggest beneficiary of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. His handsome appearance caught the attention of fans around the world, and in the second group match against Ghana, he scored two goals with a header, attracting the attention of many European teams.

Scotland’s Celtic and Germany’s Bundesliga’s Mainz were mentioned as potential next destinations for Cho Kyu-sung. In addition, revenge teams from other continents also put Cho Kyu-seong on the recruiting list. Cho Kyu-seong, who prioritized advancing to Europe, focused on communicating with Celtic and Mainz. 

Coincidentally, both teams needed a striker to score. The transfer work was carried out with Cho Kyu-seong as a priority. Cho Kyu-sung was worried. He was worried about whether to move in the winter when the stock price rose or to go in the summer when the European season ended after staying in Jeonbuk. 

Going to Europe right now was risky. Because it was off-season, I had to prove my skills right away in a situation where my physical condition was not perfect. 토토사이트 Korean players entering Europe often struggled with this problem after their winter transfer. On the other hand, summer transfers have the advantage of being relatively easy to adapt to as European clubs prepare for the new season. Cho Kyu-sung was deeply troubled over the timing of his transfer. 

In the meantime, Celtic and Mainz, who were in a hurry, sought an alternative to Cho Kyu-sung. Celtic picked Oh Hyeon-gyu (22, Suwon Samsung). Boasting a solid physique of 1m86cm and 82kg, he scored 13 goals and 3 assists in 36 K-League 1 matches last year. He even accompanied the Qatar World Cup as a reserve member. 

Mainz signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with striker Ludovic Azorc (29), who played for Ligue 1 Strasbourg in France. Azork, a tall striker of 1m96cm, has played for Strasbourg since 2018, scoring 51 goals and 19 assists in 151 appearances. 

In fact, as the recruitment of strikers for both teams is over, the winter transfer of Cho Kyu-sung is also being delayed. The European winter transfer window is less than a week away. In the end, it seems that Cho Kyu-seong will choose to stay in Jeonbuk after a long struggle. An official from Jeonbuk said, “Before going to the training camp in Spain, I know that he talked with the club about staying.” 

Cho Kyu-sung listened to the advice of his seniors and colleagues who had experienced advancing to Europe. They are known to have helped Cho Kyu-sung based on their respective experiences. However, the decision was entirely up to Cho Kyu-sung. The Jeonbuk club also wanted to accompany Cho Kyu-sung, but they did not force the choice. The position was that if the player was treated appropriately, he would be allowed to transfer.
