Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly placed an offer for Bordeaux striker Ui-jo Hwang.

It’s French outlet L’Equipe who reports Wolves’ attempt to sign the 29-year-old, claiming Bruno Lage’s side put a bid worth around €3m on the table.

The offer was made on Wednesday, and according to the report it was ‘deemed insufficient’ by Bordeaux.

The negotiations, however, are said to be carrying on. L’Equipe points out that Ui-jo Hwang has never hidden his desire of featuring in the Premier League, and in case of a move to Wolves, he could meet his compatriot Hwang Hee-chan at the club.

In the past couple of months, the striker had already been linked to English clubs such as Leeds United and West Ham United, and the player even confirmed he had received an offer from the Hammers.

At the time, it wasn’t said how much David Moyes side offered for the signing. Wolves seem to be coming strong for Ui-jo Hwang, and with negotiations continuing, they may indeed lead the competition for his signing this summer.
