Oh Hyun-gyu, imminent to join Scotland Celtic… Transfer fee of 3.8 billion won
Professional football K-League 1 Suwon Samsung striker Oh Hyeon-gyu (21) is imminent to advance to Europe. The destination is Celtic, the prestigious club representing Scotland. It is said that the finalization process is different as he has already agreed on the transfer fee in a situation where he has already concluded an agreement on personal conditions.
British media ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 23rd (Korean time), “Celtic is imminent to sign Oh Hyun-kyu for a transfer fee of 2.5 million pounds (approximately 3.8 billion won).” It will be finished,” he said.
Initially, it was Cho Kyu-seong (24) who Celtic showed interest in. However, during the negotiation process, it broke down as it could not find an agreement with Jeonbuk Hyundai (K1). As a result, the target was turned, and Oh Hyun-kyu was dropped and a ‘love call’ was sent, 스포츠토토 and the recruitment was imminent as it moved swiftly.
Celtic was in dire need of reinforcing their frontline striker as it was a foregone fact that their “main gun” Giorgios Yakomakis (28) would leave during the transfer market this winter. There is Kyogo Furuhashi (28), but we needed a type of striker who would actively fight inside the box and finish it off, so we chose Oh Hyun-gyu.
Oh Hyun-kyu signed a semi-pro contract with Suwon while attending Maetan High School in 2019, and made his professional debut that year and made his name known. The following year, he enlisted in Kim Cheon Sangmu (K2) for military service and completed his military service.
In the 2022 season, Oh Hyun-gyu flew in Suwon. He scored the most points in the team with 13 goals and 3 assists in the K League alone. In particular, he took the lead in remaining by scoring the winning goal against FC Anyang (K2) in the second leg of the promotion playoff (PO).
In the midst of this performance, Oh Hyun-kyu was called by coach Paulo Bento (53, Portugal). Although he did not make it to the final 26-man entry for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, he was selected as a reserve player and worked together in Qatar.
