Wolves are confident are sealing a permanent move for in-form Wanderers striker Hwang Hee-chan, according to journalist Danny Rust.
The Lowdown: Hwang linked with Premier League duo
The South Korean has made a flying start to life at Molineux, having moved there on loan from RB Leipzig in the summer.
Hwang has scored four times in his first eight Premier League appearances – only six of those have been starts – and has struck up a good relationship with Raul Jimenez.
According to a recent report, however, Liverpool and Manchester City are eyeing up a move for the striker, highlighting the importance of Wolves securing his services permanently.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Journalist gives positive update
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Rust has provided a positive update from a Wolves perspective, though, claiming the club believe a deal can be struck:
“It’s important for them to try and get that deal done.
“But, likewise, this is one where you have to question whether Liverpool or Manchester City are going to be able to offer him the game time that he can get at Wolves? Almost certainly not.
“We’ll see what happens, but I’m sure Wolves are still confident they can get a deal done.”
The Verdict: Vital deal to secure
Hwang has taken to English football seamlessly and if Wolves could sign him permanently it could feel like a major piece of business considering the giants of the division are seemingly circling.
At 25, he should be about to enter the peak years of his career and 45 goals in 126 RB Salzburg appearances, not to mention winning 43 caps for South Korea, speaks for itself.
Hwang has been lauded as a ‘top player’ by Bruno Lage, and assuming his current form continues, tying him down permanently is a no-brainer for Wolves.
