RB Leipzig snap up South Korea striker Hwang Hee-chan from Salzburg. Chelsea have snapped up star striker Timo Werner for a £48million fee.
Leipzig’s plans to rebuild their attack after star man Timo Werner’s departure are already taking shape, with the Bundesliga side singing Hwang Hee-chan.
Hwang, who signs from sister-club RB Salzburg, scored 16 goals and recorded 22 assists for the Austrian side this term, starting alongside Erling Haaland before the Norwegian sensation’s mid-season transfer to Borussia Dortmund.
He provided a goal and an assist in Salzburg’s dramatic 4-3 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League group stage clash at Anfield.
Despite falling firmly into Haaland’s towering shadow, Hwang exited the competition with three goals and five assists as Salzburg failed to make the last-16.
Hwang has also made 32 appearances for his native South Korea, including three games at the 2018 World Cup.
