Arsenal transfer news: Gunners tracking Red Bull Salzburg’s Hwan Hee-chan | Football | Sport


Arsenal are one of the Premier League teams monitoring Hwang Hee-chan after his recent impressive outing in the Champions League.

Hwang scored Red Bull Salzburg’s first goal in last week’s 4-3 defeat against Liverpool and has caught the eye of several English teams.

Arsenal’s London rivals Crystal Palace are another team linked with the South Korean international, who is under contract until the end of next season.

With Hwang approaching the final 18 months of his contract and the forward’s form peaking, it is unsurprising that so many clubs are interested in him.

The Daily Mail claim Hwang is likely to move on next summer if he continues to make his mark.

Arsenal target Hwang’s form has been somewhat surprising after his underwhelming loan spell at Bundesliga side Hamburg last season.

The 23-year-old has now rectified his disappointing form and scored five goals in eight matches for Salzburg.

The South Korean’s excellent run has coincided with fellow forward Erling Braut Haaland’s scoring streak.

Haaland has also attracted the attention of Premier League clubs after his Champions League hat-trick against Genk and goal against Liverpool.

Hwang’s goal in the defeat to Liverpool was particularly noteworthy, as he turned Virgil van Dijk, and proved to be the kickstart for Salzburg’s revival.

Liverpool went on to win the game 4-3, a win which put them level on points with their Austrian opponents.

Salzburg host Napoli next and know that a win would see them go top of the group.

Arsenal, meanwhile, sit top of their Europa League group with two wins from two games.

The Gunners face Portuguese side Vitoria S.C. next, a game they will be heavy favourites to win.

Arsenal are in third place in the Premier League after a mixed start to the season.

The London side travel to Sheffield United next, looking to secure back to back wins for the first time since the opening two fixtures of the season.
