Report: Atlanta United interested in South Korean striker Hwang Ui-Jo

The Five Stripes look to add a quick, distance-shooting striker to their squad.


Atlanta United could be about to add an exciting attacker to their roster in the form of Korean international Hwang Ui-jo.


According to Greek outlet To10, Atlanta United and Minnesota United have sent official offers for the Korean striker who will likely join one of the two teams, as he cannot play for another European club this season due to FIFA regulations.


Ui-jo, 30, currently plays for Greek side Olympiacos on loan from Nottingham Forest and the South Korean National Team. He featured in each of Korea's four matches during the 2022 World Cup but failed to find the net at the tournament. He's also had a spell of poor form with his club this season, featuring in 13 matches with the Greek giants and only managing an assist.


Before transferring to Forest, Ui-Jo played for Bordeaux in Ligue 1 where he racked up 12 goals, 3 assists in the 2020-21 season and 11 g, 2a in 2021-22. He primarily plays as a striker but has also played on either wing.


This would add a third striker to the Five Stripes' roster along with Jackson Conway and Josef Martinez
