Wolves transfer news: Wanderers linked with 'Korean Mbappe' Jung Sang-bin

Wolves have been linked with a move for Suwon Sumsang striker Jung Sang-bin.

According to Naver yesterday, Wolves have reignited their previous interest in the player and hope to sign him and loan him to Swiss side Grasshoppers.

The club apparently made a move for Jung last summer.

Naver’s report suggests that time was against Wolves during the last window, meaning they were unsuccessful in their pursuit.

But it seems the club are ready to go back in for the 19-year-old, who has already earned one cap for the South Korean national team.

Jung is seemingly a young player with big potential, with Naver branding him ‘the Korean Mbappe’.

Presumably that means he is blessed with searing pace, mazy dribbling attributes and can finish well.

Perhaps ominously, the Twitter account Korea Football News (@KORFootballNews) have claimed that Jung has actually left the South Korea U23s training camp.

It remains to be seen if this is actually the case, and a move to Wolves is indeed in the offing.

Wolves, of course, signed Jung’s fellow countryman Hwang Hee-chan last summer on loan from RB Leipzig.

The currently injured star immediately hit the ground running, scoring four goals in his first seven games.

Jung Sang-bin to Wolves one to watch?

Perhaps this is one to keep an eye on for Wolves fans as the end of the transfer window approaches.

It seems the club have held interest in the teenager previously.

Wolves put out a statement earlier this month stating that it was certain there would not be a large number of new faces coming in this month.

It is widely accepted that Wolves won’t be making significant additions to the first-team.

But it seems Jung could be signing, and would potentially be one for the future at Molineux.

He would become the club’s third addition of the window if he signs. The club have already landed Hayao Kawabe, who has gone to Grasshoppers on loan. And Chiquinho, who is working with the first-team squad.
