Leeds United are eyeing a number of solutions for their striker issues, with one of their alternatives sure to impress…
That’s according to Phil Hay, who writes in The Athletic about their pursuit of several targets.
The two worked together at RB Leipzig and is seen as a direct alternative should they miss out on their marquee target Georginio Rutter.
Although he has had a poor season, the South Korean last season established himself as a fine forward for the Premier League.
He would pair this with 100% of his duels won, outlining just how his workmanlike assets often match his offensive threat.
When he first moved to Molineux, journalist Nathan Judah captured his announcement to the home crowd whilst labelling him an “exciting talent”.
However, it seems he is yet to truly capture that potential.
Despite this, he still recorded 0.9 shots and 0.9 tackles per game during that first campaign, via Sofascore.
Whilst he is hardly prolific, it could be argued that neither is their main target Rutter. The Frenchman has only scored twice in the Bundesliga this season, yet is expected to command a fee of around €30m (£26m).
Perhaps it might be a smart move to stay wary of the situation with Hwang, who arguably would not offer that much less than the 20-year-old for far less a financial output.
He can be a fine alternative that would instantly take to Marsch’s system, hopefully, to propel them to safety once more.
