Hwang Ui-Jo, a Bordeaux star who is available for a discount, is sought after by Wolves.


Hwang Ui-Jo, a star for Bordeaux, is sought after by Wolves, and the South Korean is available for a bargain price.

The Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-Jo has been contacted by Wolves.

The international player from South Korea, 29, is offered at a discount.

Bordeaux was demoted to the third tier due to financial difficulties and debts in the neighborhood of £34 million, but they were reinstated in Ligue 2 last month after a third successful appeal.

The crisis club must sell before they can buy this summer due to sanctions placed on them by the financial watchdog of French football.

In the event that the West Midlands club moves forward and makes an offer, Hwang, who has just one year left on his contract, would be available for a low price.

According to L’Equipe, Wolves made an offer of £2.5 million (€3 million) that was later rejected. However, the publication also states that negotiations are still going on with the 29-year-old who is eager to play in the Premier League.

According to reports, the player is unwilling to stay in French football’s second division, and Bordeaux would save money by offsetting the player’s €2 million ($1.7 million) annual salary through a sale.

Hwang moved to Bordeaux from Gamba Osaka in Japan in 2019 and has since registered 29 goals in 97 games, all of which have come in the league.

In an interview with Girondins 4 Ever over the weekend, Bordeaux manager David Guion acknowledged that Hwang is most likely to be traded this summer.

He will undoubtedly depart from us in the upcoming days, in fact.

West Ham has also been mentioned in connection with a transfer, but it’s unclear if they still have interest after acquiring Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo.

Along with Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min and potential Wolves teammate Hwang Hee-chan, if Hwang makes it to the Premier League, he will be the third active South Korean in the English top division.
