Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-Jo is ‘no longer really interested’ in a move to Nantes after Wolverhampton Wanderers entered the picture for him.
That’s according to Foot Mercato, who back up reports from earlier today that the striker would prefer a move to Molineux over other options.
Wolves made their first move for the Bordeaux man last night and that was followed by a report from France that stated he would ‘prefer’ to join them this summer.
FM now follow that up, explaining that Hwang is ‘very much in demand’ at Nantes and the player was ‘seriously studying the possibility’ of the move.
However, he’s now changed that stance and is ‘no longer really interested’ in the French side because his entourage have grown tired of the number of intermediaries.
That’s made negotiations too complicated, so he is now ‘focusing on’ Wolves instead.
They’ve made an offer that is similar to the one Nantes made as they’re looking for a replacement for Raúl Jiménez after his recent injury.
They’re studying several profiles and Hwang is one of them, with the player very keen on the switch should it be offered.
