The big league call has already come. Genoa of the Italian Serie A is targeting Cho Kyu-sung.
The Italian ‘Calcio Line’ reported on the 15th (KST), “What if Genoa had a Korean player. Anything can happen in soccer. We’re talking about Cho Kyu-sung, who made headlines after scoring the goal that defeated Roberto Mancini’s Saudi Arabia. He’s just settling in after joining Mitwylan from Jeonbuk Hyundai.”
“He’s a central striker, but he can also play on the left or right wing. He will be interested in playing in the big leagues and Genoa can offer him a chance. He has a contract with Mitwylan until June 2028. It”s a long-term contract, and I don”t think the transfer fee for him will be more than 5 million euros. If you ask me if a transfer is possible, I would say yes.” 메이저놀이터
Cho Kyu-sung is a South Korean striker. He started his career at FC Anyang before moving to Jeonbuk, the top team in the K League 1. After a disappointing start, he gradually increased his presence and improved his physicality after joining Gimcheon Commerce. He peaked last season when he surpassed Lee In-gyu to become the top scorer in the K League 1.
He became a World Cup star. He was selected by coach Paulo Bento and traveled to Qatar. He was evaluated as a backup to Hwang Eui-jo, but he emerged as a starter with great performances, including a multi-goal performance against Ghana. His skill, good looks, and star quality raised his popularity. This season, after struggling with injuries, he returned to form and led Jeonbuk’s offense. He was linked to several clubs in the summer, but his final destination was Mitwylan.
Mittwilan director Svend Gravensen said: “We have been chasing Kyu-sung Cho for over a year. After the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, clubs from all over Europe were attracted to him and there was fierce competition for his signature. I’m very happy he’s here. He is a complete striker. He is good at playing with his back to goal, using his physique to his advantage. He is technically strong and finishes with his head and feet. He is very ambitious. He wants to prove himself in Europe. The goal is to get him up to speed quickly. Of course, he needs to compete,” said the coach.
