Celtic: Hoops in pole position for Cho Gue-sung

Celtic: Hoops in pole position for Cho Gue-sung -Celtic News

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.

The 24-year-old netted twice in a group game against Ghana and become a breakout star, gaining millions of followers on social media, partly due to a viral clip of him mocking Cristiano Ronaldo.

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.

Celtic fans, do you remember who Ange's first Hoops signing was?

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.
