Wolves journalist Nathan Judah has been sharing his thoughts regarding on-loan Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan, his start to the season and what the rest of the campaign could hold for the player. 

This comes after Judah co-hosted a recent edition of the E&S Wolves Podcast where he discussed a number of topics concerning Bruno Lage’s side.

Who scored the opening goal in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Leeds United at Anfield in September?

On the subject of Hwang, who joined the club during the recent summer window on a loan deal from German club RB Leipzig, Judah had this to say about him (27:40):

He said: “I’m quite excited about him actually. Obviously he’s come through, he’s got this huge following as well abroad which is great, and I think this could be a useful signing.

“I was a little bit sceptical, and I still will be, we’ll have to see him play a little bit more and I’m actually looking forward to seeing if he does start against Spurs, I don’t think he will start against Brentford.

“But he’s a good option and to get someone who’s come in as that second striker, and for me probably ahead of Fabio [Silva], you might see it differently, I know there’s maybe different horses for courses, but for me, he’s the number two to Raul.

“He started really well, and I think he could offer a really good option not just coming on last 15, 20 minutes, but eventually, if he just carries on playing, maybe as a two up-front.”

TIF Thoughts on Nathan Judah’s comments on Hwang…

Given how the 25-year-old managed to score on his first appearance for the Old Gold during their recent 2-0 win over Watford, it’s easy to see why Judah is excited to see what Hwang can produce for the club during his loan spell, even though he’s only played 27 minutes of action for them so far.

Moving forward, it will be interesting to see whether or not Lage decides to start Hwang in Wolves’ upcoming Premier League match against and if he can add to his goal tally.

Looking even further down the line, it’ll be intriguing to see if Hwang does enough during his time at Wolves to make them trigger their option to buy him at the end of his deal.

In our view, we feel that if Hwang does end up being a useful attacking option for Wolves this season, as Judah thinks he can be, then they should definitely consider signing him on a permanent deal.
