Four MLS teams reportedly interested in Korea's Ahn

Ahn Jung-Hwan, the South Korean star whose superlative World Cup performance in 2002 captured attention around the world, is apparently looking at a move to Major League Soccer.

According to reports out of South Korea, the teams that are interested in his services are the Colorado Rapids, Chivas USA, the New England Revolution and Red Bull New York.

Ahn seemed on the cusp of superstardom after helping South Korea advance to the semifinals of the 2002 World Cup, but his contract with Italian club Perugia soon ended. Since then, he has been a somewhat inconsistent performer.

Of all the teams seeking to sign Ahn, Chivas USA is based in Los Angeles, which has the largest Korean population of any U.S. city. --
