Wolves: Tim Spiers drops Hee-chan Hwang update

Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to sign Hee-chan Hwang permanently this season.

What’s been said?

That’s according to a claim made by Tim Spiers, with the journalist revealing in a recent Q&A on The Athletic that Wolves will activate their £12m option to purchase the forward from RB Leipzig at some point this season.

In his post, Spiers said: “I think they’ll look to sign him either way, £12m is a bargain for a player with his attributes in my opinion. Scored four goals from five shots on target, works incredibly hard, shows intelligence and good movement.

“And this is only from the opening months of his Premier League career. I think there’s more to come from him and he can fit into a variety of systems. Great squad player at least for that fee.”

The journalist also rubbished reports suggesting that Wolves’ move to sign the 25-year-old could be hijacked by a bigger club, stating in a post on Twitter: “Some random speculation linking Hwang with a move elsewhere in January…

“Contractually he’s locked in as Wolves’ player for the season. Power is completely in Wolves’ hands and it’s their decision whether to activate the deal they’ve agreed. No other club can muscle in.”

Fans will be elated

Considering just how impressive Hwang has been since joining Wolves on a season-long loan deal this summer, the news that the club will look to make the South Korea international’s deal a permanent move, be that in January or at the end of the season, is sure to have left fans elated.

Indeed, over his 11 Premier League appearances for the club, the £9.9m-rated man has already scored four goals and created one big chance for his teammates, as well as taking an average of 0.8 shots and making 0.5 key passes per game.

These returns have seen the £71k-per-week forward average a SofaScore match rating of 6.82, ranking him as Bruno Lage’s 11th-best performer in the top flight of English football.
