Wolves are in a strong position to sign Hwang Hee-chan on a permanent deal ahead of Champions League duo Liverpool and Manchester City, according to journalist Luke Hatfield.
The Lowdown: Hwang impressing on loan
The 25-year-old made the move to Molineux on loan from from RB Leipzig during the summer and he has made an impressive start to life in the Black Country.
The South Korean has shone so much that a permanent move would be wise from the Molineux club, but Liverpool and City have both been linked with snapping him up.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Hatfield confident of permanent move
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Hatfield claimed that Hwang still looks most likely to extend his stay at Wolves, which would come as a big boost to the Midlands club
He said: “I think they can still pull the deal off. The fact that he’s there now is obviously massively beneficial to Wolves’ chances.
“Given that he’s getting game time and enjoys the style of play, his team-mates, the training ground and management, it puts them in prime position to sign him on a permanent basis.”
The Verdict: Get it done, Wolves
Hwang has shown enough in a few months to prove that Wolves should sign him permanently, with the South Korea striker excelling alongside Raul Jimenez.
Not only is he shining in an attacking sense with his goalscoring explots, he has also averaged one tackle and 1.4 fouls per game this season, showing that he can get stuck into his defensive duties as well. In comparison, Jimenez averages 0.8 tackles and the same number of fouls.
Making Hwang’s temporary move permanent should be a no-brainer for Wolves and the hope is that a deal is agreed sooner rather than later, allowing the club to take a sigh of relief as other suitors reportedly lurk for the 25-year-old.
