Cho, a 27 year-old-striker has made an impression in the J-League according to Hodgson.
Cho is the latest South Korean footballer to knock on the doors of English football. Seongnam Chunma midfielder Kim Doo-hyun is also in talks with Championship side West Bromwich Albion.Frankly, I don't know anything about Cho, but any threat to score is helpful as Hodgson looks for a way out of the relegation zone.
Should he land in Fulham, Cho becomes the fifth South Korean international featured in the Premiership, joining Seol, Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung, Tottenham defender Lee Young-pyo and Middlesbrough forward Lee Dong-gook.
Aside of the Spurs' Lee, none of the Koreans are getting regular minutes, but Cho is a good bet to leave an impression right away, considered clearly a superior talent to either Seol or Middlesbrough's Lee.
The athletic, 1.85-meter striker is regarded for his ability to win balls in air and keep possession in traffic, making him a constant frontline predator and a terror for defenders in set pieces.
