Rangers ‘confirmed to be moving on’, ‘eyeing’ Cho Kyu-sung again…”He’s got great ability”
Rangers FC, who are losing their main striker, have set their sights on Cho Kyu-sung (25, Jeonbuk) again.
“Rangers FC will look to add more goals in the summer transfer window, and that could include Cho Kyu-sung, who was a target for the club in January,” the British publication Rangers News reported on July 23.
Jo Kyu-sung, who was the top scorer in the K League 1 in the 2022 season while playing for Jeonbuk Hyundai, represented South Korea at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar last November. He gained worldwide attention after scoring a multi-goal performance against Ghana in the second match of Group H on Nov. 28 last year.
After the World Cup ended with Argentina winning the title, Cho received interest from Scottish clubs Celtic and Rangers, as well as German club FSV Mainz 05. But instead of heading to Europe, Cho stayed with Jeonbuk.
“After impressing at the World Cup, South Korean striker Cho Kyu-sung has since struggled with his form and fitness. Celtic and Rangers were linked with a move in January, but Cho missed out on the opportunity and is now focused on improving his form.”
“Fitness has been his biggest issue this season, but that shouldn’t stop us from signing him. His goalscoring record is excellent and he certainly showed what he can do at the World Cup. He caused a lot of problems against some of the best defenses in the world,” he said, explaining why they need to sign him.
The Rangers are interested in Cho because their main man, Alfredo Morelos, has decided to leave the team after the season 안전놀이터.
The striker, who has been with Rangers since the 2017-2018 season, has played a total of 268 games and scored 124 goals, but announced on June 23 that he will leave the club when his contract expires in the summer.
“If Morelos does leave, Michael Beale should keep an eye on a striker like Cho Kyu-sung. Cho is a striker with elite experience and has been scoring goals for his national team. His refined style of play is also a plus.”
