Borussia Dortmund will be our main rivals in signing Red Bull Salzburg forward Hwang Hee-chan, according to the Salzburger Nachrichten (via Sport Witness).

The Austrian newspaper reports the German club will look to offer €15m (£13m) for the South Korean international. We were also mentioned in the report as a major contender for the 22-year-old’s signature.

Earlier this month, the Evening Standard reported we were tracking the striker, with the player keen to link up with his compatriot Son Heung-Min.

Our interest in Hwang pretty much came out of the blue. Although he has performed well for Salzburg this season, helping the Austria side to the semi-finals of the Europa League, his stats are nothing to write home about.

This campaign has seen him score just five league goals in 20 appearances despite playing as a central striker. He has hit double figures in all competitions, but we would likely be signing potential rather than the end product if we do win the race for him.

  • Hard to comment about a lad we’ve never seen. LOL. at least he would provide some company for Son. Out of the blue, indeed.

  • I am still waiting for our “early dealings” in the window or if not at least reaching agreement with intent to sign. Was this another wind up, will we be in the “last knockings Bargain basement” yet again.
