Liverpool are rivalling Tottenham in showing an interest in signing Wolves attacker Hwang Hee-chan, a fresh transfer report has claimed.
The Reds have assembled one of their best attacking units in many years, with Jurgen Klopp having five top-quality options to call upon.
Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo are all strong choices for Liverpool, with the quintet bringing different attributes to the squad, whether it be goals, work ethic or pace, to name just a few.
It looks as though the Reds could still be eyeing a move for another attacking player, however, with Football Insider claiming that they are keen on signing Hwang, along with Spurs:
“Liverpool and Tottenham are monitoring red-hot Wolves star Hwang Hee-chan, sources have told Football Insider. It is believed the two Premier League giants are assessing the 27-year-old with a summer move in mind and are unlikely to swoop this month.
“Scouts have been blown away by Hwang‘s performances for Wolves this season since his move into a centre-forward role. The South Korea international, who will play at the Asian Cup this month, can play on the left, right and through the middle, and has particularly impressed in a more central role.”
Our thoughts on Liverpool signing Hwang Hee-chan…
Hwang could be a really astute signing by Liverpool if they can beat Spurs to his signature, with the South Korean possessing so much of what Klopp looks for in his attacking players.
As the report states, the 27-year-old is capable of thriving all the way across the attack, whether that be in a central role or out wide, and he is at an age where he could be about to come into his prime years.
Not only that, but Hwang could feel that he has outgrown Wolves come the end of the season, reaching a point where he is ready to test himself at one of the biggest clubs in the country.
This season, he has scored 10 goals in 20 Premier League appearances, as well as assisting three times, and he could be even more productive alongside better players at Liverpool.
