National football striker Hwang Hee-chan (27) has begun discussions with Wolverhampton in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL).
Sports media The Athletic reported on the 19th that “Wolverhampton is talking to Hwang Hee-chan over a new contract,” adding, “Negotiations are progressing positively.” Hwang Hee-chan, who was loaned to Wolverhampton from Leipzig, Germany in August 2021, completely transferred in January last year, five months later. The contract period is until June 2026, and the transfer fee at that time is estimated to be 16.7 million euros (about 23.6 billion won). 안전놀이터
Hwang Hee-chan has emerged as Wolverhampton’s ace in his third season in the EPL. Hwang Hee-chan, who played 12 EPL games in the 2023-2024 season, scored six goals and is leading his team’s attack. He is the most prolific scorer in the team with seven goals in all official games. He has surpassed the record of the most goals (five goals) in a season set in the 2021-2022 season when he made his EPL debut.
In particular, the momentum has been strong recently. His sense was so keen that he scored five consecutive attack points before the home game (2-1 win) against Tottenham on the 11th. On the 14th of this month, he received the October Player of the Month award given by the club. Wolverhampton, with Hwang Hee-chan’s performance at the forefront, shook off its slump at the beginning of the season with three wins, two draws and one loss in six games, starting with the match against Manchester City (2-1 win) at the end of September.
The media outlet said, “Hwang Hee-chan is known to be satisfied with playing under coach Gary O’Neill. “If the conditions are okay, we can expect to extend the contract,” he said. “The club wants to present improved conditions as compensation for Hwang Hee-chan’s performance.”
