Wolves: Sky Sports claim Leeds are still pushing for Hwang

Wolverhampton Wanderers have already rejected a bid from Leeds United for Hee-Chan Hwang and now a new update has emerged from a reliable source on a potential move in the final hours of the transfer window.

What’s the latest?

According to Sky Sports News, Leeds United are continuing their pursuit of the Wolves winger as the Deadline Day clock ticks down.

In a clip from Sky Sports tweeted by Football Daily, Kaveh Solhekol reported:

“The Leeds situation, we know they have been looking for a forward, another player they were trying to sign is Hwang, he’s a player they seem interested in.

“Some people involved in the negotiations are saying they are trying to set it up with Leeds, but are not sure if it is going to happen as it is late in the day, but they are still trying.”

Lage heading for Deadline Day disaster

There is no doubt that at this stage of the final hours of the transfer window it would be a huge disaster for Bruno Lage if the club were to lose Hwang so late in the day, especially if they have nobody lined up to replace the player.

The South Korean star hasn’t been at Molineux long, joining the club on a loan deal last summer which was turned into a permanent move back in January after the winger impressed in the team in the first half of his spell in the Midlands.

However, after a promising start with Wolves scoring four goals in his first six appearances, Hwang suffered a hamstring injury that kept him out of the side for just over a month and he hasn’t been able to get back to his best ever since, scoring just once since February.

Indeed, making a profit on the player they paid £14m for less than nine months ago would be tempting for Wolves, but it would be an absolute nightmare for the manager in his attempts to improve his team’s goal tally and league position.

Wolves currently sit in the relegation zone 18th in the league table, with only two goals scored over their first five Premier League games, and this is something that must drastically improve if they have any chance of climbing up the table.

Should Wolves let Hwang go?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Losing an attacking option in Hwang, despite his goal drought, would only weaken the team’s goal threat further in the coming weeks and months of their campaign in the top flight.

With that being said, Lage must do everything he can to keep Hwang at the club over the next few hours as letting him go could only further negatively impact their difficult start to their Premier League season.
