Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in late moves for RB Leipzig attacker Hwang Hee-chan and Marseille defender Duje Caleta-Car.

Late Moves for Pair

Wolves have had a fairly quiet window this summer, but after losing their first two Premier League games of the season under new boss Bruno Lage, there may be a late flurry of transfer activity at Molineux.

South Korea international Hwang is at the top of Wolves’ targets. He currently plays for RB Leipzig in Germany and helped them to a second-place finish last season having joined from fellow Red Bull club FC Salzburg that summer.

Hwang was said to be a target for Wolves before when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge, but this time around, Leipzig are willing to let their frontman leave.

Wolves could be in need of forward reinforcements if Adama Traore was allowed to leave the club. They have already rejected an initial approach from Tottenham Hotspur for the Spain international, according to John Percy and Matt Law of The Telegraph.

Spurs had hoped to open talks over an initial loan deal with a view to a permanent move next summer. However, Wolves stood firm over their desire to keep the winger.

Meanwhile, RMC Sport are reporting that Lage’s side have submitted a bid for Croatian defender Duje Caleta-Car.

West Ham United have also shown an interest in the 24-year-old, although they are also close to completing the signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea. Whether they go for both defenders remains to be seen.

Caleta-Car was linked with a loan move to Liverpool in January in the midst of their defensive crisis before they eventually opted for Ozan Kabak.

Sven Botman Bid Made

According to Fabrizio Romano, Wolves have made an official bid for Lille defender Sven Botman, who is thought to be one of the best young defenders in European football.

As the window reaches its end, it is clear that Bruno Lage wants to make further improvements to his squad, as he looks to keep Wolves within their mid-table comforts.
