Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, said on the social network service (SNS) on the 29th (Korean time), “MLS’s Chicago Fire made an official offer to Nottingham Forest and Olympiacos to make Hwang Eui-jo their designated player. Discussions are currently ongoing to find an agreement.”
Hwang Ui-jo is going through a 메이저놀이터 rough time this season. He moved to Girondins de Bordeaux in 2019 and challenged the European stage. He performed well with 29 goals and 7 assists in 98 official matches. Last summer, the team was confirmed to be relegated to the second division amid sluggishness, and Hwang Eui-jo chose to transfer to take on a new challenge, moved to Nottingham Forest, which had been promoted to the Premier League, and then left on loan to Olympiacos.
However, it was completely pushed out of the main competition. At the beginning of the season, he had a chance in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League, but showed a disappointing performance. Since then, his position has narrowed due to a change of manager and the joining of a new competitor, and he has only one assist in 14 games this season.
In the end, Hwang Ui-jo is expected to find a new destination through the winter transfer market. In Greece, it is expected that he will transfer after terminating the lease contract with Olympiacos. Currently, MLS, K-League, and J-League are showing interest.
In this situation, Chicago has put in an official offer. There is a salary cap in MLS, but the salary cap does not apply only to three ‘Designated players’ per team. Accordingly, Chicago plans to recruit Hwang Eui-jo as a ‘designated player’.
