Wolves transfer news: Plenty of clubs like Hwang Hee-chan

Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan is reportedly liked by several clubs, ahead of the summer transfer window.

That is according to the Express & Star, who have revealed Wolves are set to face some challenges this summer.

The club will be needing to make player sales in order to stay in line with Financial Fair Play.

Wanderers have spent heavily in recent times, and it is now at a point where some player sales are needed.

The reports mentions several names that might be moved on.

Ruben Neves is, of course, mentioned. The Molineux captain is perhaps the most likely to be sold given he’ll have just one year left on his contract. Wolves are reportedly looking for £45 million.

But there is also a mention for Hwang.

Apparently, ‘plenty of clubs’ like the South Korea international, who joined Wolves from RB Leipzig for around £14 million.

Hwang has racked up 61 appearances for the club so far, scoring eight goals and making four assists.

He has probably divided Wolves fans, but he has certainly been valued by Julen Lopetegui.

The Spaniard made him a regular starter at first. But Hwang then picked up a hamstring injury against Liverpool in February.

This put him on the sidelines for a few weeks. And since his return, starts have been hard to come by.

But Lopetegui is a fan of the 27-year-old, with The Athletic reporting he likes his ‘work ethic, tactical discipline and versatility’.

Earlier this season, it was claimed Hwang had interest from German outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.

It was also suggested Wolves actually did reject a bid for him in January.

It would be a shame to see Hwang Hee-chan leave Wolves

Hwang hasn’t always convinced at Wolves. But it would be shame if he left the club after just two seasons.

He has shown himself to be a decent squad player, and it’s been clear that Lopetegui has taken a liking to him.

He may not be a clinical forward but he does offer industry, physicality and mobility.

Considering it looks like Adama Traore will be leaving, it is perhaps in Wolves’ interests to keep hold of a player like Hwang.

But this apparent FFP situation might mean Hwang is a player that gets offloaded this summer.

Hopefully if that it to be the case then Wanderers are able to at least get back what they paid.
