Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-Jo would prefer a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers over other options this summer.
That’s according to Girondins 4 Ever, who provide their own information on the potential move to Molineux today.
They explain that Wolves’ first offer of €3m has been ‘deemed insufficient’ by Bordeaux but negotiations are ‘still ongoing’ between the two clubs.
There is a deal there to be struck and one factor that could change things is the fact that the South Korean has always said that he would like to play in the Premier League. At 29, it seems to be now or never.
In addition to Wolves, he also has offers from French clubs, one of whom is Montpellier. They were linked months ago and have returned to look at a deal this summer.
At this point, though, Hwang Ui-Jo ‘would prefer’ to move to England and join Wolves but Bruno Lage’s side will need to almost double their offer to get him as Bordeaux want €6-7m for the striker.
At the moment, then, Hwang is expected to be a part of the squad for the clash against Rodez on Saturday unless ‘negotiations progress even further’.
For that to happen, Wolves will need to up their bid, which it seems they are yet to do.
