Celtic are thought to be in pole position to sign Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors forward Cho Gue-sung, with an offer already on the table.
The Lowdown: Successful World Cup
Cho represented South Korea at last year’s World Cup in Qatar and impressed on the biggest stage, helping his country qualify for the last 16.
He was linked with a move to Parkhead as a result, and it looks as if a transfer is a real possibility going on a recent update.
The Latest: Transfer news
The Daily Record relayed an update on Celtic and a move for Cho in the last 48 hours.
They claimed that the Hoops are in pole position for the forward and have tabled a £2.2m offer to Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors, who appear to want a bidding war for their star attacker.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
Ange Postecoglou is seemingly on the search for a replacement for Giorgos Giakoumakis after contract talks broke down with the Greek striker. He’s thought to be poised for a January exit, so bringing in Cho could be a shrewd move.
The South Korean has been labelled a ‘physical player’ who can be a ‘real handful for defenders’ by journalist Pete O’Rourke and can also provide an option out wide. He has scored a total of 57 goals for club and country, so hopefully, a transfer can gather more pace in the coming days.
