Oh Hyeon-gyu (22, Suwon Samsung)’s dream of entering Europe is getting closer.
British media Sky Sports said on the 21st (Korean time), “Scotland Celtic is almost close to signing Oh Hyun-kyu from Suwon. With Oh Hyun-gyu wanting to move to Celtic, he will also undergo a medical test soon,” it was reported.
Celtic’s interest in Oh Hyun-kyu continued from the beginning of last month. Celtic sent an official letter to Suwon, expressing their intention to recruit him. However, Suwon expressed reluctance to send Oh Hyun-gyu, the team’s key striker. He wanted to accompany him until the 2023 season, saying, “I can’t send it,” but the continued love calls and Oh Hyun-gyu’s strong will changed the airflow.
Hyunkyu Oh is from Suwon Youth Maetan Middle School – Maetang High School. As a high school student, he stepped on the K-League stage in 2019 and signed the first semi-professional contract in the K-League. 안전놀이터
The issue of his military service was also resolved early. He returned to Suwon in 2021 after completing his military service, and took part in 36 games last season and scored 13 goals and 3 assists, emerging as a top striker. In November of last year, he was called by former coach Paulo Bento, and at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, he was listed on the reserve list and accompanied the squad throughout the tournament.
On the other hand, Celtic is regarded as the best club in Scotland. In addition to winning the Scottish Premiership 52 times, he also won the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL) once. This season, too, it was ranked at the top.
