Wolves reportedly agree to sign Hwang Hee-chan on loan

Wolves have agreed a deal to sign Hwang Hee-chan on loan, according to reports in South Korea.

South Korean outlet Star report that the 25-year-old will fly to England for his Wolves medical tomorrow.

Hwang, who has 37 caps for South Korea, currently plays for RB Leipzig but Wolves have convinced him to leave.

They will apparently have an option to buy the forward at the end of the season.

Wolves’ desire to sign Hwang has apparently convinced him to pursue a new challenge in English football.

He was apparently wanted by Everton as well as West Ham and Brighton.

Hwang can play on either flank as well as as the central striker in Bruno Lage’s 3-4-3 system.

Wolves needed a new forward option after letting Rafa Mir, Austin Samuels and Patrick Cutrone leave this summer.

Anfield exploits

In October 2019, when he was still at RB Salzburg, Hwang scored and assisted at Anfield against Liverpool in a 4-3 defeat.

So he’s already had a taste of English football and Lage will hope he can add something new to the Wolves attack.
