Wolves transfer news: Hwang Hee-chan remains of interest to Leeds

Leeds United reportedly still hold an interest in Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan.

The Athletic reported yesterday that Jesse Marsch is an admirer of the South Korea international.

The Whites boss has, of course, worked with Hwang previously when the pair were at RB Salzburg together.

Leeds were linked with Hwang at the end of the summer transfer window. Marsch actually admitted Hwang was a player on his list.

In the end, nothing materialised with Bruno Lage keeping hold of the 26-year-old.

Hwang has struggled again for the most-part this season, and had a really tough time in particular a few months ago.

Hwang’s clearance across his own box against Newcastle United saw a lot of Wolves fans express their frustrations with him.

Days later, he then saw a penalty saved against Preston North End in the Carabao Cup.

Just lately though, Hwang has been playing much better for Wolves.

Since returning from the World Cup and working with Julen Lopetegui, Hwang has looked confident again.

On Saturday, he made a decisive impact against Liverpool off the bench, scoring the equaliser for Wolves.

He also should have had an assist on a Toti Gomes winner. But it was chalked off in controversial fashion.

It remains to be seen what will happen with Hwang in the next few weeks. But Leeds are seemingly still looking at him, and it’s possible an offer could come in.

Wolves must brace for Hwang Hee-chan offer from Leeds United, with Whites still showing interest

It would be no surprise if Leeds came in with an offer soon for Hwang. Especially now that he has found some form again.

Finding a new attacking player is thought to be a major priority for them, and Marsch obviously knows Hwang very well.

But Wolves should be trying to keep hold of the star.

Over the past few weeks he has reminded people of his quality. He was brilliant at the World Cup against Portugal and Brazil.

And since coming back to Wolves, the £14 million star looks much more confident and dangerous. He is perhaps one of the most improved players so far under Lopetegui.

Unless Leeds come in with a huge offer, Wolves shouldn’t be entertaining their interest.
