French Ligue 1 club AJ Auxerre are close to completing a move for FC Seoul striker Jung Jo-gook.

Yonhap news agency suggests that the 26-year old South Korea international will officially sign with Auxerre when the next transfer window which commences on January 1.

Auxere have struggled in front of goals this season, despite competing in the UEFA Champions League, and are in need of a capable goal scorer if they are to improve their 14th place standing on the French top flight table.

Jung kicked off his career with Anyang in 2003 but has been with Seoul since 2004. Last season he helped the capital club to the K-League championship with 13 goals in 29 appearances.
