Reports have emerged that Wolverhampton striker Hwang Hee-Chan could be the subject of interest in the summer transfer window.
Hwang joined Wolverhampton on loan from Bundesliga side Leipzig last season, and after a successful loan spell, he has now been bought outright by the club.
He continued to impress in every appearance this season, but was hampered by frequent injuries. A hamstring injury ruled him out of the squad just before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and although he was trusted by Julen Lopetegui upon his return, he was limited by injury between February and April.
In addition to his unfortunate injury, Wolverhampton’s financial situation has also had an impact.
According to local reports in England, Wolverhampton will be forced to sell players to meet Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations next season.
Hwang Hee-chan, who has been targeted for sale, will have to prepare for life elsewhere next season, with Premier League teams and Serie A clubs showing interest in a move to a better environment.
“Hwang Hee-chan could be on the move this summer after receiving interest from several Premier League clubs, including Tottenham and Newcastle,” the Mirror reported on Aug. 28 (KST).
“Tottenham and Newcastle are among several clubs interested in Hwang Hee-chan,” the Mirror said. “Wolverhampton were stunned to learn they would have to sell the player due to FFP, which has brought him to the attention of Tottenham,” Lopetegui said.
“Newcastle, who are looking to strengthen their squad after reaching the UEFA Champions League, have also made enquiries, while Aston Villa and Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma have also put the player on their watch list,” the report added.
The Mirror predicted that Lopetegui would be loath to lose the player.
“With Nabil Neves and Mateusz Núñez likely to leave, Lopetegui is loath to lose Hwang, who has had important talks with the owner about the summer transfer window,” the publication said.
Emphasizing that teams will need to approach at an early stage, the outlet added: “Lopetegui wants any deal to be completed as soon as possible. That means suitors for Hwang will have to reach out to him in the coming weeks,” explaining that if Hwang does move, a decision could come quickly after the transfer window opens.
Meanwhile, if Hwang leaves Wolverhampton and joins Tottenham, Newcastle, Aston Villa, and AS Roma, we could see him in next season’s UEFA competition.안전놀이터
Newcastle has already qualified for the Champions League, while Tottenham and Newcastle are vying for a Europa League spot. Roma will also qualify for UEFA competitions if they win the Europa League this season or maintain their current sixth-place finish.
Many Korean fans will be interested to see if Hwang Hee-chan, who had a somewhat disappointing season, will be able to capitalize on the situation at Wolverhampton.
