Interest in Cho Kyu-sung (Jeonbuk Hyundai) is growing.
Cho’s agent, Yoon Ki-young of Info Korea, said on the 18th, “Watford have shown great interest in Cho. Watford will make a formal offer. So we are currently waiting.”
Watford, a 142-year-old team, won promotion to the Premier League (1st Division) by finishing second in the 2020-2021 Championship, but was relegated after finishing 19th in the 2021-2022 Premier League. It finished 11th last season.
Yoon said, “We have to negotiate after receiving Watford’s offer. There are several clubs interested, and Watford has sent a formal offer. I can’t reveal the specifics, but teams from various leagues are interested.”
Cho became the first South Korean to score multiple goals in a single game at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
He scored two headers in the second round of the group stage against Ghana to help South Korea advance to the round of 16.
After the World Cup, Cho received interest from European clubs. However, he remained with Jeonbuk, determined to make it to Europe once he was in perfect shape.
In March, Cho was injured in two consecutive A matches and was not in perfect shape. He was out of action for more than two months. However, after his return, he scored a goal and began to receive interest from European clubs again.스포츠토토
“There are still offers from existing clubs that were interested in signing him,” said Yoon Ki-young. Starting with Watford, there is interest from several clubs. As for the personal agreement, it’s not true. We will decide after considering the various offers.”
