Fulham join Wolves in the chase for Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-Jo, with the Ligue 2 club demanding £4m for the South Korea international

  • Hwang Ui-Jo has been Bordeaux’s highest goal scorer for the past two seasons
  • The 29-year-old also has also scored 16 goals in 47 games for South Korea
  • He is now being chased by Premier League sides and could be a cheap option
  • Former Chelsea and Arsenal winger Willian is eyeing a move back to Europe 

Fulham have joined Wolves by expressing interest in Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-Jo.

Wolves have offered £2m so far but Bordeaux want £4m for the South Korea international.

Hwang has been the French club’s top scorer in each of the last two seasons and has picked up 29 goals in 97 games since signing in 2019.

He couldn’t keep Bordeaux in Ligue last season though, as the club was relegated to France’s second tier for the first since since 1991 amid financial issues.

 His record for South Korea is also impressive. Hwang has 16 goals in 47 international games and was named the Korea FA player of the year in 2018.

Bringing in a cheap but proven goal-scorer could make a big difference in a tight-looking mid-table this season.

Fulham have not yet held talks with Corinthians’ former Chelsea forward Willian who is looking to return to Europe. 

The 34-year-old knows English football well after playing close to 400 games with the Blues and Arsenal.

He looked a fading force in his last season in the Premier League, though, scoring just once in 37 games for the Gunners.
