Wolverhampton’s Hwang Hee-chan has received offers from a number of clubs, and the British media has expressed curiosity.
“It’s hard to believe (the transfer rumors) considering how bad Hwang has been for Wolverhampton this season,” said the Express on Sept. 29 (KST).
Hwang made 27 Premier League appearances this year. He scored three goals and provided one assist. He has two assists in four League Cup games and one goal in one FA Cup game.
The Express reports: ‘Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on striker Hwang Hee-chan, who has scored three goals this season. Tottenham are looking to bolster their attacking options as Harry Kane could leave this summer. Newcastle United are also interested in Hwang,” according to the report.
However, the Express added: ‘It’s hard to believe considering how poor Hwang has been this year, but he does have Champions League experience. That could help Tottenham and Newcastle. It should also be remembered that he played up front with Elling Holland (Manchester City) in the Austrian league,” adding further credence to the transfer speculation.
‘Hwang and Holland pushed Liverpool to the brink at Anfield in the 2019-2020 Champions League group stage,’ the Express wrote. They caused Liverpool huge problems.
At the time, Liverpool were expected to win in a landslide. However, Hwang Hee-chan scored a goal and an assist and Holland scored a goal as the Reds battled back and forth. Liverpool won a hard-fought 4-3 victory 토토사이트.
The Express positively assessed the possibility of a move, saying, “Hwang Hee-chan may need a new challenge.
While Tottenham would be a great option for South Korean fans to see him play alongside Son Heung-min, Newcastle could be a better option for Hwang if given the choice. Tottenham have no European competition next season. They play fewer games, so there are fewer opportunities. Newcastle are in the Champions League, the ultimate stage of European competition.
As the Express put it, “Newcastle want a player who can play multiple roles up front ahead of the Champions League. Hwang could fulfill that role.
