Suwon Samsung’s Oh Hyeon-gyu, who dreamed of advancing to Europe, is expected to head for Celtic.
On the 20th (Korean time), British ‘Sky Sports’ said, “Celtic is close to signing striker Oh Hyun-gyu from K-League Suwon Samsung. I am certain,” he said.
Oh Hyun-gyu is a promising player representing the K-League 1. After making his debut for Suwon Samsung in 2019, he began to properly show his true value from his last season. As he scored 13 goals in 36 appearances in the K League 1, he established himself as an ace in the team. Thanks to Oh Hyun-kyu’s performance, Suwon Samsung was able to avoid relegation.
He also participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Although he was not officially selected for the 26th, he was selected as a reserve member and helped train the national team players.
After the World Cup, when the winter transfer window opened, ‘Scottish prestigious Celtic’ approached Hyun-kyu Oh. Celtic recently started looking for replacements, mainly Korean players, while they wanted to reinforce their strikers. 온라인카지노
First, Celtic wanted Cho Kyu-sung. Cho Kyu-seong was the top scorer in the K-League 1 and made an outstanding performance by scoring multiple goals in the Qatar World Cup against Ghana. However, they failed to reach an agreement with Jeonbuk Hyundai, and Celtic chose Oh Hyun-kyu rather than Cho Kyu-seong.
Oh Hyun-gyu is also active in going to Celtic. Oh Hyun-gyu, who had dreamed of going to Europe since childhood, actively insisted on going to Europe despite the club’s dissuade. He personally visited the club four times and asked for permission to transfer. In the end, Suwon Samsung allowed Oh Hyun-kyu to transfer, and it seems that a new Korean Celtic player will be born following Ki Sung-yong and Cha Du-ri.
