Pohang, the FA Cup winner who will send its flagship striker Zeka to China, is about to recruit a striker who has been active in K League 2.
An official familiar with the transfer market said on the 23rd, “Pohang has selected striker Giorgi, who played for the new team Chungcheongbuk-do Cheongju this year, as an alternative to Zeka, and has come to the end of the recruitment stage.”
Zekka made his debut in the K-League 1 with Daegu last year, and made a soft landing in the Korean league by scoring seven goals and seven assists in 28 games. He then moved to Pohang this year and scored 12 goals and seven assists in 37 games in the K-League 1, signaling that he is an excellent resource in both scoring and assisting.
As a result, Chinese clubs and Jeonbuk Hyundai competed for Zecca, but Shandong Luneng of the Chinese Super League, where Choi Kang-hee is at the helm, will be embraced.
Pohang looked for a proven mercenary striker on the domestic stage to find an alternative to Zeca and sent a love call to Jorge, who was ranked fourth in the K League 2 score, to spur negotiations.
Jorge’s record alone is good enough to succeed Zeka.
Although it is in the second division, he played in 34 games and scored 13 goals and two assists. Considering that Cheongju in North Chungcheong Province was founded this year, it is interpreted as an attack point that can be evaluated even higher. 월카지노
Pohang, where head coach Kim Ki-dong moved to FC Seoul after this season, is accelerating its efforts to build a new team by bringing in new head coach Park Tae-ha. Besides Zeka, Australian defender Grant is also highly likely to go to China, so he has to fill the gap in his team’s capacity.
For now, it is possible to secure Jorge to maintain his offensive power.
