Guangzhou Evergrande chasing Kim Young-Gwon

30 Jun

Japanese press has reported that Chinese reigning champion Guangzhou Evergrande FC is chasing Omiya Ardija’s young Korean defender Kim Young-Gwon. Guangzhou reportedly had been targeting Al Saad’s Lee Jung-Soo, but as Lee signed a new two-year contract with Al Saad, Guangzhou has changed the target. Japanese press <Sports Nippon> has stated that Kim and Guangzhou have already mutually agreed on terms.


Kim, meanwhile, has been named in South Korea’s 2012 London Olympic Games squad. At the age of 22, he already has seven A-level caps and is a regular in the U23 team.
