Wolverhampton Wanderers are thinking about activating the transfer clause in Hee-Chan Hwang’s loan deal this month.
That’s according to BILD, who say Bruno Lage’s side would have to pay €16.5m to sign the striker permanently before the end of this month.
Hwang joined Wolves on loan in the summer and was an instant hit at the beginning of the season, enjoying a ‘mega start’ by scoring four goals in his first six games.
He’s tailed off slightly since then, with a torn muscle fibre in mid-December, meaning he’s been out of action for a while and is currently ‘working on his comeback’ at the minute.
Wolves have been impressed by what they’ve seen, though, and BILD report that they are ‘considering pulling the purchase option’ for him this month.
They have a €16.5m clause in the current loan deal, which runs until the summer, but they’re considering activating it this month and making Hwang their player permanently early.
That would suit RB Leipzig, who see the player as ‘capital’ that can be brought in so Domenico Tedesco can bring in his own players this month.
