Leeds United have been offered the chance to sign Jeonbuk Hyundai striker Cho Gue-sun in the January transfer window, according to 90min.

The online outlet has reported on its website that the 24-year-old is interesting numerous clubs in the United Kingdom, with clubs in Scotland and England queuing up.

Everton, Southampton, Burnley and West Brom are all said to have been offered Cho this month, with Rangers and Celtic also said to hold a strong interest.

Cho came into the spotlight during the World Cup over in Qatar.

South Korea stunned to make it through the group stages, beating Portugal and leaving Ghana and Uruguay behind before falling to Brazil in the knockouts.

With the 24-year-old seemingly destined to leave, it would be no surprise to see him make that move to the United Kingdom in the next couple of weeks before the deadline.


Victor Orta and Andrea Radrizzani love finding a steal in the market, and it was no secret that they were both keenly watching along in Qatar.

Angers midfielder Azzedine Ounahi is another example of a player who could arrive at Elland Road after shining at the World Cup, in what promises to be a huge January window.

This one appears more unlikely though, regardless of him being offered.

Georginio Rutter is on the verge of confirming his switch to West Yorkshire from Hoffenheim with his medical underway, so another number nine is possibly not needed.

Patrick Bamford returned at Aston Villa and found the back of the net, landing a timely reminder for everyone ahead of yet more competition arriving at the club.

January is a tricky time to be a Leeds fan with nearly every player under the sun being linked with the club, but it looks as though this one will pass with no concrete developments.

Time to move on.
