Wolves reportedly rejected offers for both Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee-chan in January.
Wolves were very busy on the transfer front during the mid-season window.
Six new players came in, and Julen Lopetegui’s squad was significantly improved.
Wolves were also able to retain key players.
But it looks as though there was actually some potential for players to leave.
The Telegraph reported yesterday that Wolves actually did turn down offers for attacking duo Jimenez and Hwang.
Jimenez, 31, was linked with a return to his former team Club America and was also a target for some MLS clubs. There were also suggestions Lopetegui was ready to offload him.
And Hwang was supposedly in Borussia Monchengladbach’s crosshairs. Leeds United were also linked again, as they were last summer.
It is not mentioned how much was bid for either player. Or which club/s actually came in for the duo.
In the end, Wolves resisted the temptation to offload either player.
Matheus Cunha and Pablo Sarabia came in for Wanderers. And Goncalo Guedes left the club to join Benfica on loan.
An interesting claim as Wolves reject offers for Jimenez and Hwang
So Wolves batted away some offers for Jimenez and Hwang in January, which is interesting to consider.
Neither player had been in good form in the first half of the season.
Clearly, Lopetegui saw them in training and felt like he wanted to keep hold of them.
It’s good that they both stayed.
Jimenez has definitely been showing signs of improvement of late.
Ditto Hwang before his injury, and one gets the feeling the manager likes what the £14 million South Korean brings to the table, particularly his great work rate.
