NOTTINGHAM FOREST AND HWANG UI-JO TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Nottingham Forest are going to sign Hwang Ui-jo from Bordeaux. They have been the busiest Premier League side this summer. The club have made 12 signings this summer. However, they have no intentions of concluding it with 12. If things go to plan the newly promoted side are looking to add more quality players to the club.
Bordeaux suffered relegation from Ligue1. It was clear that many players would leave the club. It looks like Hwang was definitely going to be one of them. He was one of the only positives for the french clubs last season. Although, it looks like Nottingham Forest will prise him away from the club. It looks like the deal will go through in a few days.
WEST HAM UNITED WERE ALSO REPORTEDLY INTERESTED IN THE STRIKER
Just last month, the striker had spoken that he had received offers from West Ham United. He also said, “I am waiting, nothing is decided yet. There will be more details to give you depending on the financial situation of the team, of Bordeaux. It is true that offers have arrived from FC Nantes and West Ham United as well.”
However, nothing came out of the West Ham offer. Nevertheless, West Ham later signed Gianluca Scamacca from Sassuolo. Whereas Hwang will now join Nottingham Forest this summer. The Premier League club will reportedly pay £3.4 million with a further £800,000 in add-ons. He is also going to have his medical in a few days.
Hwang is described as a striker who is unplayable on his day. The striker managed to score 11 goals in Ligue 1 last season. That is an exceptional return as Bordeaux were awful last season in attack. All in all, he is going to surprise a lot of people at Nottingham Forest.
