Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) has begun to advance into the European stage this summer.
On the 15th (local time), Turkiye’s ‘Gazete Batan’ said, “Cho Kyu-seong is attracting attention,” and mentioned as a candidate to recruit a striker from Galatasaray this summer.안전놀이터
Cho Kyu-sung drew attention from around the world last year by scoring two goals with a header at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. During the winter transfer market in January, he received interest and offers from several European teams, including Germany’s Mainz 05 and Scotland’s Celtic. Minnesota United of the United States also prepared a huge offer.
However, after discussions with the club officials, including technical director Park Ji-sung, Cho Kyu-seong refused the transfer and stayed in Jeonbuk. It was because he could fall behind in the main competition if he transfers in less than perfect condition. So, during the summer transfer market, he calculated that he would promote his advance into Europe and compete with the schedule from the pre-season.

This kind of painting by Kyu-Sung Cho is the mood that led to Galatasaray’s interest. Galatasaray is a prestigious club that boasts of winning the Turkiye Super League 22 times. The 22 championships are the most in the league.
Galatasaray is expected to transfer major players by position this summer, including Kerem Akturkoglu, Lucas Torreira, Victor Nelsen, and Yunus Akguin. Among them, Cho Kyu-seong is being reviewed to fill the void as a striker.
‘Gazete Batan’ added, “Fenerbahce was also interested in Cho Kyu-seong. He played as a defensive midfielder and has been active as a striker since 2017. Last year, he played 35 games in the K-League and scored 21 goals and 5 assists.”
