Mainz announced on the 24th (local time) that they had signed striker Ludovic Azorc (29) from Strasbourg in Ligue 1, France. The contract period is until June 2026.

Mainz, which is also the team of national midfielder Lee Jae-seong (31), is ranked 12th (20 points) in the Bundesliga this season.

With 20 goals in 16 games, the score was at the bottom of the league, so they wanted to strengthen their striker throughout the winter, and the player who was mentioned as a strong candidate was Cho Kyu-seong, who left a strong impression in the World Cup.

However, while Celtic (Scotland) and Minnesota United (USA) are also said to be interested in Cho Kyu-sung, Mainz has expressed their position that they feel the burden of the transfer fee, but in the end, it seems that the recruitment of Cho Kyu-sung was unsuccessful.

Azorque, wearing a Mainz uniform, is 196 cm tall and has been active in French clubs since Angers in 2012. 메이저사이트

Since 2018 he has played for Strasbourg, scoring 51 goals and 19 assists in 151 games.

He scored 16 goals in Ligue 1 in the 2020-2021 season and 12 goals last season. In this 2022-2023 season, he was recording 1 goal in 13 regular league games.

Mainz club said, “Azork perfectly fits the characteristics the manager was looking for, so we tried to recruit him for several weeks. There were very long and intensive discussions about the contract. Thank you to the Strasbourg club.”

Mainz will play the 17th round of the league with Dortmund at 2:30 am on the 26th in Korea time.
