Wolves are reportedly worried about the potential departure of their top goalscorer, Hwang Hee-chan, in the upcoming summer transfer window. As offers are anticipated, the club are preparing for the likelihood of bids.
The 27-year-old striker, currently representing South Korea at the Asian Cup, has made a notable impact for Gary O’Neil’s squad this season.
With 11 goals and three assists in 21 appearances for the Premier League side, Hwang Hee-chan has drawn attention from Liverpool and Tottenham, both closely monitoring his progress, according to Football Insider.
Wolves, recognising the interest in the South Korean star, fear the possibility of losing him during the summer transfer window. However, it is expected that the club will set a substantial transfer fee for the player to safeguard their valuable asset.
Hwang recently agreed to a contract extension, securing his stay at Molineux until June 2028. This move is anticipated to enhance the player’s market value, especially if renowned clubs like Liverpool or Tottenham express concrete interest in acquiring his services.
Considering the abundance of talent in Liverpool’s forward area, it poses a challenge to envision Hwang seamlessly fitting into their squad. Hence, Tottenham emerge as a potentially more suitable destination for the 27-year-old.
An intriguing aspect is the presence of Hwang’s international teammate, Son Heung-min, at the North London club.
Son, serving as the Tottenham captain, could play a pivotal role in aiding Hwang’s transition, fostering his integration into the team, and helping him realize his full potential at his new club.
