Liverpool could seal 'great' Hwang signing after reported update - pundit

Kevin Campbell has heaped praise on Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan amid interest from Liverpool and Manchester City.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton forward is adamant the 25-year-old would be “a great signing” for the Premier League big boys.

Hwang has impressed since moving to Molineux on a season-long loan deal in August.

In his eight Premier League appearances this season he has scored four goals.

According to the Mirror (13th November), Wolves will try to sign Hwang permanently in January amid interest from other Premier League clubs.

Liverpool and Manchester City are said to have watched the South Korea international several times this term.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Hwang’s future, Campbell said: “I think he’d be a great signing for both [Liverpool and Man City].

“Let’s be honest, Man City could do with any striker.

“Hwang Heechan has shone since coming to the Premier League. He can score goals but he can also play. He is dangerous and the bonus is he can play across the front line.

“If Man City are taking notice, then you know he’s a good player.

“He is a very lively player so I’m not surprised to hear some of the big boys are looking at him.”

Speaking on Hwang last month, Wolves boss Bruno Lage said: “I think he has adapted to the Premier League…

“Top players can enjoy our game and I think he is a top player like the other guys.”
