Signed on loan from RB Leipzig a couple of days before transfer deadline day, Hee-chan Hwang has hit the ground running with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Brought in to help the attack in the wake of Raúl Jiménez’s full return to football following his serious head injury, the South Korea international hasn’t taken long to impress, most recently scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over Newcastle.
Hwang now has three goals in four appearances for Wolves in the Premier League, and this early form is already getting the tongues wagging in Leipzig, where there is a chance they will receive €15m from an option to buy in the loan deal.
Tag24 cover it on Monday, and ask the question of whether the decision to leave the Bundesliga side this summer was the right one.
Their answer, so far, is a ‘maybe’, but they make it clear that ‘it is hard to imagine that the financially strong English club will not draw the purchase option of €15m after a year’, especially if he continues in the same vein of form.
One to keep an eye on alongside future performances from the forward, who is capable of playing anywhere across the front three.
