The European transfer window closes… ‘Bull’ Hee-chan Hwang, will you leave Wolverhampton?


As the European soccer summer transfer window closes near, attention is being paid to the future of Hwang “Bull” Hee-chan (26), a national striker who plays for the Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League (EPL).

Hwang Hee-chan, who had a fresh start with a helping hand in the EPL opening game of the 2022-2023 season, has since narrowed.

As Portuguese forward Gonzalo Gedez joined, the competition intensified, and in the match against Tottenham Hotspur on the 20th, he was defeated by Gedez and played as a last-minute substitute in the second half.

In addition, in the match against Newcastle United on the 28th, the ball kicked off by Hwang Hee-chan provided an excuse for the equalizer and received fierce criticism from local fans.

The news of Wolverhampton’s signing of an additional striker also makes Hwang Hee-chan’s future uncertain.

Wolverhampton is also pushing for the signing of 2m tall striker Sasha Kalajic (Stuttgart). If successful, it is highly likely that Hwang Hee-chan’s appearance time will be further reduced.

At the same time, clubs wanting Hwang Hee-chan appeared.

On the 24th, Moly New News, a local Wolverhampton newspaper, reported that Leeds United want Hee-chan Hwang. Leeds is headed by coach Jesse Marsh, who was a gifted student during his former Salzburg (Austria) days.

Director Marsh also said, “I know Hwang Hee-chan well. He knows what kind of football I play. He’s a player on our signing list.”

Leeds side striker Daniel James is interested in Tottenham Hotspur. The plan is to aim for Hwang Hee-chan as a replacement when James leaves.

Everton also want Hee-chan Hwang. The Sun recently reported that Everton, suffering from a lack of a striker after Hisharlisson’s transfer to Tottenham, is considering Hwang Hee-chan as an option.

He is aiming for Ben Bretton Diaz, who plays for Blackburn, but is expected to jump into signing Hwang Hee-chan if he fails.

After joining Wolverhampton on loan from Leipzig (Germany) last season, Hwang Hee-chan successfully transferred in January of this year.

In his first 30 regular season appearances for Wolverhampton, he scored five goals. But he has yet to score this season.

Meanwhile, the EPL summer transfer window closes at 7 am on the 2nd of next month (Korean time).
