    CELTIC have joined the race to land South Korea World Cup sensation Cho Gue-sung.

    The Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors striker grabbed a stunning headed double against Ghana on Monday.

    SunSport understands Celtic are one of several European clubs keen to land the 24-year-old in January.

    Cho is well known to Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou, having scored against his Yokohama F Marinos team in the Asian Champions League in February 2020.

    The 6ft 2in striker went into the Qatar World Cup off the back of an impressive season in Korea.

    He scored 21 goals in 35 games in all competitions for Jeonbuk and army team Gimcheon Sangmu.

    Cho had moved there on loan to complete his mandatory military service before returning to his parent club for the second half of the campaign.

    He continued to hit the goal trail for Jeonbuk - and grabbed three in a two-legged Korean Cup final win over FC Seoul.

    Cho now has six strikes in 18 caps for South Korea and is in line to start against Portugal on Friday after his Ghana exploits.

    South Korea FA vice-president Lee Young-pyo yesterday confirmed there is major interest in him from Europe.

    Postecoglou is understood to be keen to sign a new striker in January as he looks to bolster his options.

    Kyogo Furuhashi and Giorgos Giakoumakis currently battle for the No9 role but another forward is expected to arrive.

    The Celtic boss has previously admitted he follows the Korean market closely, where Cho has been a standout.

    They first crossed paths in 2020 when the rookie striker netted as Postecoglou's Yokohama won an Asian Champions League match 2-1.

    I watched a compilation of him yesterday and he looked quality..

    Big, mobile, good finisher in the air and on the deck..

    The fact there's been talk of a striker from there before the rags. Ange mentioning that country before for talent. Him playing and scoring against his former side. Us definitely wanting another striker. Ange also saying our business was well under way/almost done for January..

    Giving me a feeling that maybe we will get him..

    Really like what I see of this guy, big and powerful, great in the air but technically excellent. Plays on the wing as well as up front, despite being 6"2.

    Hope this is true.

    Would tell me that we're maybe bracing for bids for Giakoumakis in January/Summer, but this guy looks quality. Yes pls.

    Edit: Just seen that we're bracing for bids for GIakoumakis in January, think it's a cert now.

    Boys got everything, tall, powerful, pace, quick feet and can actually finish on the big stage as shown the other night. Has apparently scored in the Asian CL a few times. Really hope this is more than a rumour

    This one's better. I like the look of him..

    Big and mobile. Does a lot of work outside the box, running the channels as well as being just as good as a target man..

    I think we need a third striker so I hope it isn't a case of Jackie going and this guy coming in..
