Hwang Hee-chan has been linked to Aston Villa. Aston Villa is one of the teams that have been linked to Lee Kang-in.
“Aston Villa have been in contact with Wolverhampton over the possible transfer of Hwang Hee-chan,” the English ‘Football Fancast’ reported on May 29 안전놀이터 (KST). “Wolverhampton may have to sell some players to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules. Hwang Hee-chan is one of the candidates,” the report said.
“Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, and AS Roma are among the clubs interested in the player. Hwang can play up front as well as on the left flank. He can develop under the guidance of coach Unai Emery.”
Hwang joined Wolverhampton on loan from RB Leipzig ahead of last season. He made a strong first impression. Hwang scored his debut goal on his debut, and the Wolverhampton fans were excited. He had some injury setbacks during the season, but his overall performance was good enough to earn him a full transfer.
This season, however, has been more injury-plagued. He picked up an assist in the English Premier League (EPL) opener against Leeds United, but the injury sidelined him for about three weeks from mid-September. During that time, Wolverhampton won just two of their first 15 league games, leading to the sacking of manager Bruno Raz.
He was replaced by Julen Lopetegui. He put a lot of faith in Hwang. In the second half of the season, Hwang struggled with several injuries, but he scored three goals in the last 10 games of the season, raising hopes for the new season. He has been linked to several clubs, including Aston Villa.
Aston Villa will play in the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) next season. In any case, the prospect of playing in a major European competition is enough to attract players. It’s also important to note that Aston Villa is led by Emery, who has been called the king of the UEFA Europa League.
Aston Villa have also been linked with a move for Lee Kang-In. They’ve been linked to the player since January. With Atletico Madrid, a potential rival, saying that they would not be able to pay Lee’s €17 million buyout clause, Aston Villa and other EPL teams have taken the lead.
