Tottenham Hotspur have missed out on Hwang Hee-chan after Wolves triggered the option to sign the forward on a permanent basis, The Telegraph have revealed.

Hwang did not have the impact he would have hoped at RB Leipzig last season after his move to the Red Bull Arena in 2020 but he has impressed since arriving at Molineux on loan from the Bundesliga club in the summer.

The South Korean has predominantly been used as a left-sided forward by Bruno Lage and has four goals in 14 Premier League matches so far to his name (Transfermarkt), with the forward having been out of action since suffering a hamstring injury last month.

The Telegraph have claimed that both Tottenham and Liverpool were both interested in Hwang and were monitoring his progress at Wolves during his first season in England.

However, the West Midlands club have now moved to make his deal permanent, keeping him off the clutches of Spurs and the Reds.

The report reveals that Bruno Lage’s men have agreed to pay around £12m to secure his signature.

Spurs Web Opinion

I have been impressed with Hwang this season and I expect him to get better as he becomes more accustomed to the Premier League.

However, the jury is out on whether the 26-year-old was of the requisite quality that Spurs needed in order to close the gap with the best sides in the division.
