Wolves could make Hwang Hee-chan’s loan move to Molineux a permanent one in the January transfer window, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Hwang impressing on loan
The 25-year-old joined Wanderers on a temporary basis from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig last summer, in order to earn regular minutes.
Hwang has impressed for Wolves since arriving, scoring four goals in 11 Premier League starts and adding real quality and pace alongside the likes of Francisco Trincao and Raul Jimenez in attack.
Wanderers have the option to sign the South Korean permanently this summer, but in order to stop another team from doing the same early, they may need to get the deal done this month.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Permanent move imminent?
The report states that they are ‘considering pulling the purchase option’ in January, with that scenario also thought to suit Leipzig.
The Verdict: Makes perfect sense
Admittedly, Hwang’s form has dipped a little in recent months, not helped by a current injury problem – he hasn’t scored since October, against Leeds United – but signing him permanently is still a no-brainer.
This is a player who has scored 52 goals and registered 35 assists in 131 career appearances as a centre forward and he has shone out on the left for Wolves too.
With Adama Traore potentially moving away from Molineux this month, the funds would be generated to easily acquire Hwang’s signature, so it may not be a financial issue in the slightest.
