So far in the current January transfer window, Wolves have only managed to secure deals for Hayao Kawabe and Chiquinho.
With the end of the month in sight, it seems as though some details have emerged on one particular transfer deal that Wolves were touted to complete that will surely excite a lot of fans.
After reports emerged earlier in the season that Wolves were looking to make Hwang Hee-chan’s loan deal at Molineux from RB Leipzig permanent, Old Gold journalist Tim Spiers was asked on Twitter what the current situation is on the matter.
The journalist also claimed that Hwang’s “drop in form” just before the injury could have had a part to play in it as well.
He concluded: “Lage is a big fan so if he gets back fit and in form before the end of the season he’s a bargain at £12m.”
Since joining the Midlands club from Leipzig back in August, the 25-year-old has managed to score four goals in 14 Premier League appearances, highlighting the attacking talents he has and demonstrating why Lage admires him.
It also shows why Wolves fans would be buzzing to see him become a permanent part of the furniture at Molineux as he’s currently the club’s joint-top scorer in 2021/22.
If Hwang’s injury and recent form have put to bed any chance of Wolves making his loan deal permanent this month, his aim now will be to get fit and start scoring again if he wants any chance of the Midlands club attempting to sign him in the summer to keep him in England.
While that may be a tough ask for the 25-year-old at this moment in time, if Wolves end up selling Adama Traore to fellow Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, which has been heavily reported in recent days, this could give the loanee more chances of playing games and proving to Lage why he deserves to stay at the club for the foreseeable future.
