Sky Sports “Oh Hyun-kyu Closer to Celtic…”Medical test scheduled”
Oh Hyun-kyu seems to have increased his chances of going to Celtic.
Riyal Thomas, a reporter for ‘Sky Sports’ in the UK, said on the 19th, “Celtic is getting closer to recruiting Oh Hyun-kyu.” “The transfer agreement will be completed soon and medical tests will be conducted,” the report said.
Oh Hyun-kyu is a young gun representing the K League. Born in 2001, he is young, but has played in Suwon Samsung’s first division since 2019. That recklessness was an advantage. Suwon fans cheered as they pushed ahead with confidence even at a young age. He quickly solved the military problem and developed his physical strength, adding more advantages.
After being discharged from the military, he became an ace in Suwon. He scored 13 goals in 36 K League 1 games last season, ranking seventh in the scoring rankings. Without Oh Hyun-kyu in Suwon, where all foreign strikers were sluggish and the offense was disappointing, automatic relegation would have been inevitable. He also led Suwon to remain with a golden winning goal in the promotion playoffs against FC Anyang.
Oh Hyun-kyu, who clearly proved his ability, was also selected for the A national team. He made his A-match debut under the call of head coach Paulo Bento and accompanied him to the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup, although he is not an official member. Celtic offered Oh Hyun-kyu, who became the best player of his age by accumulating experience on various stages at a young age.
Celtic are Scotland’s most prestigious. He has won 52 Scottish first division titles and even won the UEFA Champions League (UCL). He is also a regular customer of UEFA competitions recently. Ki Sung-yueng and Cha Du-ri have passed, making it familiar to domestic fans. Celtic, who are scheduled to break up with Yorgos Yakumakis, were looking for a new striker when Oh Hyun-kyu was caught.
It was also connected to Cho Kyu-sung, but failed to reach an agreement with Jeonbuk Hyundai. It seems that Oh Hyunkyu was chosen as the next best option and even offered a proposal. Oh Hyunkyu also seemed willing. The key was Suwon’s choice, but considering the report on “Sky Sports,” it seems that an agreement has been reached. Attention will be focused on whether there will be another case of going straight to the European league after playing in the K League.
