K-League 2 Chungnam Asan FC, which is challenging for promotion in its fourth year of existence, is about to recruit Duarte (Ansan), a proven offensive resource.
An official from the transfer market said on the 10th, “Asan made efforts to secure Duarte, we know that they have almost reached an agreement with the former team Ansan Greeners and the player side.” He said, “We will be able to fill the gap in attack power with the acquisition of Duarte.”
Brazilian Duarte is a technician who needs no further explanation in the K League 2.
Entering the Korean stage through Gwangju in the summer of 2018, he made his presence known with 6 goals and 3 assists in 15 games in the first year, then transferred to Seoul E-Land the following year and recorded 28 games, 6 goals and 5 assists. 안전놀이터
After returning to Brazil for a year, he returned to Korea through Ansan in 2021 and played his part in the midst of difficult team power with 12 goals and 10 assists in 62 games for two years.
Asan plans to put on a strong drive for promotion in the new year, centered on manager Park Dong-hyuk, who succeeded in renewing the contract at the end of last year. In addition, as Cheonan City FC, a neighboring city in Cheonan, is expected to form a rivalry, it is calculated that Duarte will increase its offensive power.
In the domestic transfer market, transfers of talented second division players are active this winter. Following Korean players such as Choi Cheol-won, Oh Jae-hyeok, and Yoo Kang-hyun, who moved to K-League 1 Seoul, Jeonbuk, and Daejeon, they are busy moving foreign players.
First of all, Tiago, second in scoring in last year’s K-League 2, which was promoted at a fast pace, is imminent to join Daejeon (Exports News, exclusive report on January 9th) . Following this, Duarte also took on a new challenge on the Korean stage in Asan, which started the promotion.
