Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United want Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Hwang Hee-chan

Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are keen on Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Hwang Hee-chan, reports the Sunday Mirror.

The Midlands club could be forced to sell the South Korean international this summer due to Financial Fair Play concerns. Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui has been told to trim his squad, and the club will have to sell some of their stars to comply with financial fair play rules.

Spurs and Newcastle have been attracted to Hwang as a result, and a good offer could force Wolves’ hands. Aston Villa and AS Roma are also keen on the Asian forward as they look to bolster their attacking ranks.

Tottenham could need a new striker with Harry Kane’s future at the club uncertain as he enters the last 12 months of his deal.

Spurs could use the presence of Son Heung-min to attract the Wolves star, given both have enjoyed a solid relationship on the pitch playing for their country. Son provided Hwang with the assist that helped South Korea book a place in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar last year. A chance to reunite with his international teammate could appeal to the 27-year-old.

Newcastle are offering Champions League football and could use that to lure Hwang to St James’ Park.

The Magpies need quality depth in attack if they are to impress next term. The speedy Korean can play across the frontline and manager Eddie Howe could do with his versatility.

Premier League legend Kevin Campbell once dubbed the former RB Leipzig star a dangerous player.

Hwang chose the best time to hit peak form this term, weighing in with three goals in nine games to help Wolves stay up.

Both Spurs and Newcastle could do with his services, but more clubs are expected to join them in the coming weeks.
