There is an interesting story about Kang Sung-jin being on the radar of Tottenham manager Enzi Postecoglou, who once had Oh Hyun-gyu.

Tottenham recently appointed Postecoglou, who led Celtic FC to the Domestic Treble, as their new manager. During his time at Celtic, Postecoglou was known for his heavy use of Asian players from Australia and Japan, including Oh Hyun-gyu, and one of his signings was Kang Sung-jin.

Kang Sung-jin is a key member of the South Korean U-20 team and a key player in the country’s top four. He participated in the East Asian Cup with the A-team last July, scoring a multi-goal performance against Hong Kong, and is considered the future of Korean soccer.

“The Boot Room highlighted a report in the Sunday Mirror that Kang’s name was on Postecoglou’s recruitment list when he was at Celtic. Now that he’s headed to Tottenham, this remains valid and could increase interest in the player.

Of course, Kang is still a young player and whether he has the quality to play in the English Premier League right away is more of a question mark. He’s not a surefire starter in K League 1 either. The outlet also mentioned this.

However, he didn’t deny that the player is a good talent. “According to the Sunday Mirror, “Postecoglou has been keeping an eye on the exciting talent and has expressed interest in him. Tottenham, now his team, could increase their interest.”

Tottenham and Celtic could also be in the running for Kang. “It would be a blow for Celtic to lose him,” says The Boot Room. They’ve been bringing in players from Asia for the past few years and have been incredibly successful, so if they sign him, they’ll be hopeful that they’ve found another gem.”

“However, Celtic are now in a position to fight (for Kang) as their favorite man (Postecoglou) is heading to Tottenham,” he added.
