South Korean Champions Keen on Spending 93Million Dalasis for Gambia’s Modou Barrow


By Sulayman Bah

South Korean league champions Jeonbuk Motors are willing to cough up huge sums to land Modou Barrow’s signature.

The Gambian’s relationship with Turkish Super Lig club Denizlispor have hit rock bottom after he left the club unannounced at the height of the covid-19 global lock down to rejoin his family in Banjul.

The situation rendered the Turkish outfit irked leading to their parting of ways with the player despite his loan deal ending May this year.

Owing to how matters have panned out, the left-sided midfielder is expected to return to parent English second division club Reading with whom he has a deal until June next year.
And cashing in on the stand-off, Jeonbuk Motors are ardent on acquiring the forward in their quest to retain the South Korean league.

Reading have a 90 million dalasis price tag slapped on the Gambian who began his professional football in Sweden – a thing the Asians are willing to match but it’s unclear whether the striker is receptive to the proposal of leaving for a low league
Jeonbuk are seven-time league champions in S/Korea.
