Hwang Hee-chan (25, Leipzig), who has narrowed his position in the German Bundesliga, is receiving a love call from the English Premier League (EPL) club.
British’Daily Mail’ reported on the 26th (Korean time), “Leipzig striker Hwang Hee-chan is expected to transfer to the EPL on loan.”
Hwang Hee-chan left Salzburg (Austria) last summer and moved to Leipzig, but he has hardly gotten a chance because he was pushed out of the team’s main game.
In September last year, during his debut in Leipzig, he scored one goal and one assist in a match against Nuremberg (second division) in the German Football Association’s Pokal Round of 64, but his chances to play have declined since.
Bad news also overlapped. He was convened in Austria last November to the national team A, which had an evaluation match, and was confirmed for Corona 19. Afterwards, he was isolated from his team and devoted himself to treatment and recovery, but in fact was pushed out of the competition.
Hwang Hee-chan played 7 games up to the 18th round of the Bundesliga, and among them, there was no one starting game.
Hwang Hee-chan’s lease potential is high.
Recently, the German football media’Kicker’ also reported that “Hwang Hee-chan is getting attention from Bundesliga Mainz and EPL West Ham.”
‘RB Live’, which specializes in the news of the Leipzig club, also said on the 23rd, “Lease can be the best option for Hwang Hee-chan. In the team currently competing to win, Hwang Hee-chan is not easy to get many opportunities.”
Leipzig are in second place in the Bundesliga with 10 wins 5 draws 3 losses (35 points) after leading Bayern Munich (42 points 13 wins 3 draws 2 losses).
West Ham, who wants Hwang Hee-chan, are struggling with the lack of goal-determining ability as the main striker Haller recently transferred to Ajax (the Netherlands). This is why Hwang Hee-chan, who is capable of both sides and front, is considered the right person.
If Hwang Hee-chan goes on loan to West Ham, the confrontation with Son Heung-min (Tottenham) is also expected to attract attention.
