With 18 games played in the Premier League so far this season, Wolves have managed to rack up an incredibly mixed bag of results with seven wins, four draws and seven defeats under their belt.
Taking this into account and the fact that the January transfer window is close to opening, this could give the Midlands club a good opportunity to complete some business deals that could benefit the Old Gold on a short and long-term basis.
Moving forward, it seems as though a clue has been dropped on one particular deal that could be done at Molineux next month.
What’s the news?
In a recent transfer mailbag report for The Athletic, Wolves journalist Tim Spiers had this to say about the January transfer window and what business could take place in it for Bruno Lage’s side.
He said: “If The Athletic was a betting man they’d say Hwang Hee-chan’s loan from RB Leipzig will probably be made permanent this month and that’ll be Wolves’ major financial business.”
Since joining Wolves from the German club back in August, the 25-year-old has managed to score four goals in 14 Premier League appearances, four more goals than Adama Traore has managed to score in the league this season and one more than Raul Jimenez.
With this in mind, it would seem likely that the Wolves fans would be happy to see Hwang’s loan move made permanent in January, especially if he were able to add some more goals to his tally before the end of the campaign and potentially end his debut season with Wolves as their top scorer in the league.
Although, if the club were able to bring one or two new faces in as well next month, this would be a big boost for Lage and his chances of securing a European place in the league table by the end of the campaign.
With only Norwich City (8) having found the back of the net on fewer occasions than Wolves (13) so far this season, it could be worth trying to add a new attacker to the club in January to spark a bit of life into their frontline.
Also, with Traore being linked with a move away from Molineux, his potential exit would only further increase Wolves’ need to sign another attacking player.
