Alleged West Ham United striker target Hwang Ui-jo is apparently keen to join Wolves from Bordeaux this summer.

That’s according to a report from The Express who claim that Wolves have now made an offer for the 29-year-old and he wants to move to Molineux.

Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 47-capped South Korea international to the London Stadium this summer (L’Equipe).

And Hwang recently admitted that West Ham have in fact made an official bid to sign him.

Moyes has since brought Gianluca Scamacca to the club but it could be argued that the Scot needs to add even more attacking options to his squad before the window slams shut.

Hwang Ui-jo would be a fine addition for the Hammers in my book. It appears as though we will have our work cut out though…

Hwang Ui-jo wants to join Wolves

The Express claim that the Black Country outfit have submitted a bid for the South Korean and he is keen to join his countryman Hwang Hee-chan at Molineux this summer.

We believe that the 29-year-old would have been a very useful backup for Scamacca and Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.

So missing out on him to Wolves would be a blow for West Ham.

The Bordeaux striker could be available for around £7 million this summer too – a real bargain.

The 29-year-old is a decent, hard-working forward and he bagged 11 goals and two assists in 32 Ligue 1 outings last season (Transfermarkt).

The South Korean can operate anywhere along the front-line – something that will undoubtedly appeal to David Moyes.

The Bordeaux ace is a very decent player and would be a very useful option for Moyes to have at his disposal throughout what will be a long and physically punishing campaign ahead.

Unfortunately for West Ham though, it seems as though Hwang Ui-jo will likely join Wolves this summer.

And it will then be back to the drawing board for Hammers boss David Moyes as he tries to add more attacking reinforcements to his ranks at the London Stadium.
