Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly ready to bid over £20 million for RB Salzburg for the January transfer of Hwang Hee-chan.
That’s the claim made by Hamburger Morgenpost, who say Wolves have managed to convince the South Korea international to sign for them ahead of several other clubs.
The 23-year-old is one of several players from Salzburg to have stood out this season, having scored nine goals and made 14 assists.
Takumi Minamino is joining Liverpool next month, and Erling Haaland is widely expected to jump ship.
Instrumental Hwang has been with the Austrian outfit since 2015, and has a contract until 2021.
TBR’s view – Hwang a superb signing for Wolves
If Wolves really have agreed a deal for Hwang’s transfer, then it should please every Wolves fan in the country.
The 23-year-old is lively and versatile, and can both score and create.
He has been a key player for Salzburg during their brilliant season so far and is an intelligent player who can make things happen in the final third.
He would make for fantastic cover and competition for the likes of Adama Traore and Diogo Jota.
