Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield says that if he was in charge of Wolves, he would be looking to get a permanent deal for Hwang Hee-chan done as he wouldn’t want to lose him to another club.
Wolves signed Hwang on a season-long loan deal from RB Leipzig but do have an option to buy him for around £13m next summer according to Sky Sports.
The 25-year-old has made a brilliant impact at Wolves so far this season, with manager Bruno Lage hailing him last month, and Hatfield has sent a message to Jeff Shi, via This is Futbol: “If I was in charge at Wolves, I would say look let’s try and get this deal done as soon as possible because we don’t want someone to gazump you.”
Do you think Wolves will sign Hwang Hee-chan permanently in January?
According to the Mirror, Hwang has caught the attention of both Liverpool and Manchester City and because of this interest they are reporting that Wolves are trying to turn his deal into a permanent one in January.
The South Korea international was one of a number of signings that Lage made during the summer, with Jose Sa, Rayan Ait-Nouri, Yerson Mosquera, Louie Moulden and Francisco Trincao all joining him in signing deals at Molineux.
Lage was also quick to praise Hwang following his debut against Watford, telling the Independent: “It happened to me when I arrived three months ago, and it happened with him. He was welcomed because he is a good player, and he is a top player, and it is important for us to have this kind of player.”
