Liverpool linked with Hwang Hee-chan transfer move

Having scored more goals (31) in the Premier League than any other side at this point in the campaign, Liverpool have not had any trouble putting the ball in the back of the net this season with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scoring 20 of those 31 goals between them.

With this in mind, it seems as though the Merseyside club are looking to add another attacking option to their squad in the near future.

What’s the news?

It has recently been reported by The Mirror that Liverpool are interested in making a transfer swoop for on-loan Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

Since joining Bruno Lage’s side on a season-long loan deal from German club RB Leipzig back in August, the 25-year-old, who is currently valued at £9.9m according to Transfermarkt, has managed to score four goals in eight Premier League appearances, which could be why he has caught the attention of Liverpool as well as fellow Premier League side Manchester City.

In addition to his goals, the 41-cap Hwang has proved himself to be a versatile attacking player this season having played in every position across the front three for Wolves and Leipzig before leaving Germany over the summer. With that in mind, it could make him a suitable fit at Liverpool given how many of their current attacking players are already able to play in a number of different positions at the top end of the pitch.

In terms of a potential move to Liverpool, this could be a dream transfer for current Reds sporting director Michael Edwards to secure before he eventually leaves the club before the start of next season.

After all, he’s already a player that’s dominated Virgil van Dijk in continental competition, something he relished when speaking to The Telegraph. That’s no easy feat but encapsulates perfectly why he’d be such a good acquisition for the Merseyside club.

Would you take Hwang Hee-chan at Liverpool?

No

No

Given the ages of Liverpool’s current front three of Mane (29), Salah (29) and Firmino (30), Hwang, who pundit Ian Wright claimed “has got everything” to his game, would be a good future replacement for one of those players given his age and versatility. If he manages to end his loan spell at Wolves with more goals and some assists under his belt, he could further demonstrate what an inspirational piece of business this would be.
