Bulls ‘for sale’ after three seasons at UCL…Newcastle ‘on radar’

‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), who is likely to be on the market due to the financial crisis, could be seen in European competition next season.

British media outlet Inside Football quoted local journalist Alan Nixon as saying that “Newcastle United and Aston Villa are looking at Premier League strikers to bolster their squads” on May 25.

“Wolverhampton are forced to sell players this summer to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations,” the media reported, “and tensions are rising as claims emerge that manager Julen Lopetegui could leave the club after the club’s hierarchy broke their promise.”

“Hwang Hee-chan is another player 스포츠토토 who could leave Wolverhampton in the next transfer window as the club looks to free up cash, with Newcastle and Aston Villa among the Premier League clubs interested in him,” the report said.

Newcastle, in particular, are said to be looking to add to their squad with Eddie Howe looking for further reinforcements and Hwang Hee-chan is a player they are chasing.”

Aston Villa are also interested in Hwang, but Newcastle have the advantage of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season.

Hwang is also being watched by AS Roma, led by Jose Mourinho, and has garnered more attention during preseason in South Korea this summer.

Hwang was interested in Leeds United last summer, but Wolverhampton refused to allow him to move.

Hwang triggered his release clause when he joined Wolverhampton from Leipzig last summer, triggering a €16.7 million transfer fee.

As a loanee in the 2021/22 season, Hwang scored five goals and one assist in 31 official games, and this season he has increased his tally to four goals and three assists in 31 official games, including three goals and one assist in 26 league games, despite missing a number of games in early 2023 due to a hamstring injury.

Hwang’s aggressive bursts and positioning helped him generate attacking points, and he is also useful in multiplayer as he can play on the flanks and in the center of the field.

Newcastle, who are desperate to bolster their squad for next season’s Champions League, are interested in his versatility.

A Champions League appearance would mark Hwang’s return to the competition after three seasons, having played for Leipzig (Germany) in the 2020/21 season.
