Bae Jun-ho (20, Daejeon Hana Citizen) has been hailed as a prospect who “makes the soccer world swoon with his presence.
Andrea Garzolini said: “It was a pleasure to watch Bae Junho at the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023. He’s a real talent, even though he seems to be quite unknown (from a global perspective) at the moment.”
Garzolini is a video scout for Spanish fourth division side Velez. “It was fun to watch. As a soccer person, I was happy and excited to see such a promising player,” he said, explaining how he felt about Bae Joon-ho.
Bae helped South Korea to a fourth-place finish at the U-20 World Cup 2023 with one goal and three assists in four games, starting in the round of 16. He averaged 1.07 offensive points per 90 minutes while playing 84.0 minutes in the tournament.
His potential was recognized by European soccer before the FIFA U-20 World Cup, when he recorded one assist against the Portugal-Czech Republic U-18 team in 2022.
Garzolini also pointed to English second division side 토토사이트 Watford as a possible destination for Bae Jun-ho. The Hornets were first and last linked to the South Korean player in 2014 when they loaned him to Arsenal from the English Premier League (EPL).
Ahead of the summer transfer window, Watford have been linked with a move for 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup striker Cho Kyu-sung, 25, of the North Korean national team. Bae Jun-ho has been mentioned in the context of interest in the Korean market.
Bae was ranked as the best winger on both the left and right wings in the 2023 U-20 World Cup position-by-position power rankings by sports channel ESPN Latin America and South American OTT service ST★R+.
ESPN Latin America and ST★R+ share the same parent company, The Walt Disney Company, the world’s largest media company. Bae was also included in the list of “20 players to watch after the U-20 World Cup” by French broadcaster Canal Fleur.
In Daejeon, he switches between left wing and center/attacking midfield, and has already had some professional soccer experience, including ▲2022 K League 2 8 games and 1 goal ▲2022 FA Cup 1 game ▲2022 K League 1 promotion playoff 2 games ▲2023 K League 1 7 games.
