Report: West Ham and Crystal Palace could sign Hwang Hee-chan for £10m

West Ham United and Crystal Palace could have to pay just £10 million if they hope to sign Hwang Hee-chan, according to a report from The Telegraph.

Hwang is facing an uncertain future with RB Leipzig. He has not had the best first year in the Bundesliga following his switch from Red Bull Salzburg.

The South Korean is yet to open his account in the top flight. Having said that, he has been more impressive in the DFB-Pokal, scoring three times in four appearances.

And some may have wondered whether he had received a boost with his former boss at Salzburg, Jesse Marsch, set to succeed Julian Nagelsmann this summer.

However, it would appear that he may be allowed to leave before getting the chance to properly reunite with Marsch.

According to The Telegraph, he is available for just £10 million with West Ham and Palace keen on the 25-year-old.

 

It is noted that Hwang would be a more affordable target for the Irons than Tammy Abraham unless Chelsea drop their £40 million asking price.

Hwang has not had the best year. But he is a player who can play anywhere in the forward line, so you could understand why David Moyes may be keen.

He was much more impressive in Austria. In fact, he scored the same number of goals for Salzburg as Sadio Mane did before his move to Southampton.

Admittedly, Mane needed considerably fewer games to reach that tally. But it is still an encouraging return for a player who will apparently only cost £10 million.
