Celtic, which is showing interest in Cho Kyu-sung, has already recruited Yuki Kobayashi and Tomoki Iwata from Japan’s J-League, and brought in Canadian side defender Alistair Johnstone from American Major League Soccer.
Cho Kyu-seong, who is receiving attention from European clubs after the 2022 Qatar World Cup, is known to have received a transfer offer from Mainz, Germany, which belongs to Lee Jae-sung, in addition to Celtic.
