Report: Liverpool want PL rival's £13m-rated summer signing; he scored against Reds in 2019

Liverpool and Manchester City are both interested in Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan before his loan becomes a permanent Molineux move, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

Hwang has made an excellent start to life in the Premier League. The 25-year-old has scored four times in eight top-flight games for Bruno Lage’s side.

He has silenced a few doubters after a difficult time with RB Leipzig. The South Korea international failed to score a single Bundesliga goal for the club.

However, he has formed a very good partnership with Raul Jimenez. And unsurprisingly, Wolves are keen to make his deal a permanent one.

Could Centre-Forwards Become Extinct?

But they now face competition for his signature. The Daily Mirror reports that both the Reds and Pep Guardiola’s men want the forward.

It is noted that Liverpool want cover for their forward line. But Wolves are the side with the option to make his move permanent. As reported by Sky Sports, that option will set Lage’s men back £13 million.

Liverpool fans may be surprised by Hwang Hee-chan links

Hwang has been something of a surprise package for Wolves. He is their top goalscorer so far.

What he has shown is that he is an incredibly intelligent attacking player. His positioning is superb. And he is capable of playing in any of those front three attacking roles.

Nevertheless, the links with Liverpool may come as a surprise to Reds fans.

His time in Germany was incredibly underwhelming. And actually, all of Hwang’s goals this term have come against sides in the current bottom six in the Premier League.

Having said that, Liverpool know how dangerous he can be. He scored against the club in the Champions League while with Red Bull Salzburg.

On that day, he was playing alongside Erling Haaland, as well as Takumi Minamino.

Perhaps, a reunion with the latter may soon be on the cards.
