Wolves must unleash Hwang Hee-chan against Watford

If you looked at the Premier League table, it would tell a sorry story for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Bruno Lage has failed to see his team win or even score a goal in the top-flight yet. However, that isn’t fully indicative of their performances.

The Old Gold have created plenty of opportunities to score and have looked like the better team in matches against Tottenham and Manchester United.

On the chalkboard

With Wolves in desperate need of scoring goals this weekend, we could see a mini change in the forward line.

Hwang Hee-chan signed late in the transfer window after he arrived on a loan deal from RB Leipzig.

The South Korean is a player who Wolves have tracked for a while and an opportunity to finally acquire his services finally arose this summer.

Should Hwang start this weekend?

No thanks!

No thanks!

Yes please!

Yes please!

The £53k-per-week earner was in good form for his country over the international break and could provide Lage with the firepower that he’s been desperately lacking.

Adama Traore has so far been Wolves’ most vibrant player in attack this season but his end product has deserted him.

The Spanish roadrunner has been electrifying in offensive areas, accumulating 9.3 dribbles per game. That’s not only a Premier League high but it’s also a tally which eclipses every player in Europe’s top five divisions this term.

Yet, as Lage has already spoken about, he needs to work on his finishing.

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

However, if you combine him with Hwang, then they could form quite the partnership in Wolves’ frontline. After all, the duo have already been compared to each other.

Speaking to Birmingham Live, South Korean football expert Sungmo Lee said: “Hwang Hee-chan is a player famous for his fast, strong and daring playing style.

“Many Korean fans compare him with Adama Traore as, just like Traore, Hwang enjoys beating the opponents with his speed and physical strength.”

That paints a captivating picture of a forward who has a proven track record inside the penalty area.

During the 2019/20 campaign, Hwang was sensational for RB Salzburg. He scored 16 times and also produced 22 assists for his teammates.

That record is utterly scintillating, and if he can replicate that in England, Wolves will be onto a winner.

What that record also depicts is that he simply has to play this weekend. Lage needs goals and Hwang has them in his locker.

AND in other news, Wolves may have a new Conor Coady in rarely-seen 17 y/o who’s a “super kid”…
