Wolves transfer target Hwang Ii-jo would reportedly prefer to move to England rather than stay in France.
Girondins4Ever are reporting this afternoon that the striker is now being courted by a few clubs.
Wolves are thought to have made a first offer for Hwang, which was deemed insufficient by Bordeaux.
Negotiations are continuing between the two clubs.
It is thought that Wolves may need to double their first offer – thought to be around £2.5 million – if they are to convince Bordeaux to sell.
Wanderers may need to get a move on if Hwang – who has 45 caps for South Korea – is someone they genuinely want.
Nantes have also showing interest in him, as are Montpellier.
But encouragingly, it is stated by Girondins4Ever that Hwang would prefer a move to England, rather than stay in France, where he has been for the past three years.
This is echoed by Foot Mercato, who suggest that Wolves are in pole position to land the 29-year-old. Nantes is no longer a move that appeals as negotiations became complicated.
As things currently stand, Wolves are heading into their first Premier League game against Leeds United this weekend without a recognised striker.
Patrick Cutrone and Leo Bonatini are both still Wolves players. But neither is thought to be in Bruno Lage’s plans.
A wide forward will lead the line against the Whites. And it is hoped a new centre-forward will be available for selection the weekend after against Fulham.
Encouraging news for Wolves as Hwang Ui-jo is reported to prefer England move than stay in France
It sounds as though Wolves’ luck could be in over Hwang.
The star has been plying his trade over in Ligue 1 for the past few years, and it is understandable he would want a change of scenery. Especially at the age of 29.
Girondins4Ever say it in their article; ‘this seems like the moment or never’.
Potentially he could be a good signing for Wolves and he wouldn’t break the bank.
And of course, he’d be able to link up with his international teammate Hwang Hee-chan at Molineux. Maybe the pair have even already been in touch.
