Kim Shin-wook is destroying the Chinese Super League

Kim Shin-wook recently transferred to Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League, from perennial K-League champions, Jeonbuk in South Korea. He has proven to be a shrewd signing for Shanghai Shenhua

8 goals in five games

I have to hold my hands up here and say that I doubted Kim Shin-wook was any good. His move to China came as something of a curveball, and I didn't expect him to do as well as he has. However, he has proven me wrong and has started his CSL career like a house on fire, with 8 goals in five matches.

He scored two more goals again this weekend, and also managed an assist as he is already becoming a firm fan favourite, and if he carries on like this he will even have a chance of picking up the CSL golden boot, even though he joined the league at the midway stage.

I thought this was an odd move for Kim and Shenhua, but it seems to have been a masterstroke that is paying dividends already, and with Kim's goals, Shenhua find themselves slowly clawing their way further from those relegation spots; a place they looked destined to occupy earlier in the season.

Who has Kim Shin-wook's goals come against

Since joining Shenhua, Kim's eight goals have come against:

Hebei (1)
Henan (1)
Beijing Renhe (1)
Guangzhou R&F (3)
Wuhan (2)

He has also chipped in with two assists, which means he has directly contributed to 10 goals in 5 matches. Has there been any better signing in the CSL in recent history?
