Not bad news is being delivered to central midfielder Kwon Hyuk-gyu, who knocked on Celtic’s door in the summer transfer market and was on the waiting list for the opening game.

British media ‘The Boot Room’ reported on the 9th (Korean time) that ‘Celtic’s Japanese central midfielder Hatate Leang has a possibility of transferring to Tottenham Hotspur’.

Hatate did not get a start in the opening game of the 2023-24 Scottish Premier League (SPFL) against Ross County on the 5th. David Turnbull, who replaced him as a starter, scored two goals, including one from Kyogo Furuhashi, for a 4-2 win.

It wasn’t until the 22nd minute of the second half that Turnbull fell to the bench and Hatate got a chance. In the 34th minute, Yang Hyeon-jun made his debut as a substitute, and Kwon Hyuk-kyu’s debut opportunity, wearing a Celtic uniform under a 5-year contract, was postponed to the next day.

What is interesting is the possibility of Hatate’s transfer. It is a resource that Ange Postecoglu, who took the baton of Tottenham Hotspur, used when he was in charge of Celtic. It was an important resource, showing not bad performance with 6 goals and 8 assists in 32 league games in the 2022-23 season, and getting a chance to play in 6 matches in the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL).

First of all, coach Brandon Rodgers placed Hatate as a replacement resource. With another midfielder, Matthew O’Reilly, also looking for a goal, it doesn’t seem easy for Hatate to secure a starting spot.

The media introduced the remarks of Graham Bailey, one of the reporters familiar with the transfer market, and said, “Sometimes a transfer can be a reasonable option. It’s no surprise if you go to Tottenham. It’s definitely worthwhile to rise from the Premiership to the English Premier League. It would be better under Postecoglu than under Rogers.”

In fact, Tottenham is trying to reinforce the central midfielder. Pierre-Emile Hoivier’s move to Atletico Madrid remains a possibility. Bentancur’s injury recovery will take time. It is evaluated that it is not such a bad choice considering that there are questions about whether it is possible to endure with Oliver Skip and Papesar’s system.

Of course, there is also Eve Bisuma, so it is true that there is a question mark attached to the possibility of additional recruitment. Still, it is an interesting rumor in that if the transfer is successful, Son Heung-min has the ability to put quality passes.

Along with the appointment of Postecoglu, there were also rumors about the transfer of Furuhashi, the top scorer in the free league last season, but in the end, nothing happened. However, the media explains that it is not an unforeseen occurrence. Postecoglu said he was tracking Hatate’s movements, and thought that if not, smoke might rise from the chimney.

If Hatate transfers, Kwon Hyuk-gyu can be given a good chance. Considering Celtic’s player development in terms of Kwon Hyuk-gyu, who fulfilled his military service obligations, there is an evaluation that it is a much more valuable choice. For Kwon Hyeok-gyu, who only wants his growth, it has become an important point to watch whether there will be a variable called Hatate’s transfer in the transfer market that is still left.토토사이트

Meanwhile, Celtic’s second round opponent is Everdeen. The match, which will take place at Aberdeen’s home ground, Pittodrie Stadium, will start at 8pm on Sunday the 13th. It will be broadcast live exclusively on TV channel SPOTV ON2 and sports OTT service SPOTV NOW. It’s a pity that Oh Hyun-kyu left due to an injury, but expectations are growing as Kwon Hyuk-kyu and Yang Hyun-joon participate together.
