An official familiar with domestic and international football news told ‘Footballist’, “Cho Kyu-sung has reached an individual agreement with Watford. If an agreement is reached between the clubs, Cho Kyu-sung will play the English stage of his dreams.”
Cho Kyu-sung’s transfer fee is being discussed as high as 6 million euros (approximately 8.4 billion won) including options, but an official predicted that negotiations could be concluded at 3 million euros (approximately 4.2 billion won). In a situation where the player has the will to advance to Europe, what remains is negotiations between the clubs.
Cho Kyu-sung scored two goals with his head against Ghana at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, drawing attention from the world soccer world. After the tournament, he aimed to advance to Europe. During the winter transfer period in January, he was linked with multiple European clubs such as Mainz 05 in Germany and Celtic in Scotland. It is known that Minnesota United of the United States has also prepared a huge offer.
However, after discussions with the club officials, including technical director Park Ji-sung, Cho Kyu-seong postponed the transfer and stayed in Jeonbuk. Jeonbuk’s position was that he could hurriedly challenge the European stage and fall behind in the main competition. There was also the risk of having to join a new team in the middle of the season. He decided to try the summer transfer window, which could start in pre-season.
When the European league season ended, Cho Kyu-sung was again linked with multiple European clubs. The prestigious Scottish Rangers and the prestigious Turkiye Galatasaray were mentioned.
