Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan is attracting interest from Premier League clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

The South Korea international is apparently the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and Aston Villa, according to the Mirror.

Hwang is a player Wanderers could cash in on in the next transfer window, following news of some concerns over Financial Fair Play.

Wolves are needing to balance the books this summer, after shelling out nearly £200 million this season.

The club need to raise funds and so, it could mean players that were previously considered not for sale are now possible outgoings.

Hwang seemingly falls into this category for Wolves.

The 27-year-old still has contract at Molineux until 2026, and so has decent market value.

He was signed for £14 million after spending a first season on loan with Wolves.

Hwang has had some consistency issues during his time at Molineux. But, by and large, he proven himself as a handy squad player.

Certainly under Julen Lopetegui, he has made improvements to his game and the manager has been quite taken with him.

Before his injury problems this season he was a regular starter under the Spaniard.

So Hwang now apparently has a few Premier League clubs on his tail. It is also mentioned in the report that Jose Moutinho’s AS Roma are keen on him.

Hwang hasn’t scored as many goals as fans would have liked during his time at Wolves so far.

But he’s someone who always gives his all. And that work rate is clearly appreciated by Lopetegui.

And his ability to play anywhere in attack is also nice. Former technical director Scott Sellars said at the time Wolves signed Hwang (via The Athletic): “He’s got a lot of talent and is very versatile – he can play across all the front positions, a striker, second striker or wide.”

He’s definitely been getting better under Lopetegui, and it just feels like he’s a player who should be kept around.

But of course, these FFP issues do complicate matters.

If a decent offer comes in for Hwang from one of these clubs, then it’s possible the club will reluctantly sell him.
