Report: Vancouver Whitecaps FC interested in Korean winger


The Vancouver Whitecaps are reportedly interested in South Korean winger Hyeon-beom Ahn from K-League 2 side Jeju United.

Citing Jeju United’s ambitions to get promoted back to K League 1, Transfermarkt reports the club rejected the Whitecaps’ initial bid for the 25-year-old, who can also play right back.

If the ‘Caps can acquire Hyeon-beom Ahn, he would be the second Korean on the club, joining Inbeom Hwang, who made the move from Daejon Citizen FC and signed as a Young Designated Player last January.

Hwang, who enjoyed a stellar first season in MLS, reportedly has interested in playing in Germany, a subject Whitecaps coach Marc Dos Santos discussed with TSN as part of the MLS media tour in Los Angeles.
