Kawasaki Frontale striker Jong Tae-Se is being linked with a move to relegated German Bundesliga outfit VfL Bochum.

The 2.Bundesliga club are reportedly keen on the North Korea star as they are in the market for a quality striker and Jong fits the bill.

The 26-year old has been prolific in the J-League since 2006 and has an outstanding goalscoring record at international level.

Japanese daily Hochi suggest that Bochum boss Friedhelm Funkel is on the trail of the Nagoya-born talisman.
