REPORT: RB Leipzig ahead of Liverpool to sign top striker who gave Van Dijk a tough time

1 Mins read

It’s claimed that Leipzig have picked out Hwang as their replacement for Timo Werner, using their links to Red Bull Salzburg to get a deal done.

According to Sky Germany, RB Leipzig have beaten Liverpool to the signing of Red Bull Salzburg attacker Hwang Hee-chan in a bargain move.

The report states that both Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers wanted to sign Hwang, but Leipzig have used their sister club status to land him.

The fee is allegedly just €10million (£9million), which seems like an absolute bargain even with transfer fees expected to drop this summer.

The move sees Hwang return to Germany, having spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Hamburg. He only notched two goals in 21 games there before returning to Austria.

Hwang has returned to form this season. The 24-year-old has racked up 16 goals and 21 assists this season, playing either as a striker or was a winger.

Liverpool raided Salzburg for Takumi Minamino in January, and could have landed another star from the Far East in Hwang, but look to have missed out.

The Reds saw Hwang cause Virgil van Dijk problems in the Champions League back in October, which may have generated their interest.

Now though, having missed out on Werner, they look to have missed out on his replacement too, with Hwang all set for his move to Leipzig.
