Player Review

Hwang Hee-Chan is a center forward for RB Leipzig. Hee-Chan had a very strong 2019-2020 season for RB Salzburg scoring a total of 16 goals and providing 22 assists in 40 games. RB Leipzig therefore chose Hee-Chan as a replacement for Timo Werner and signed the South Korean forward for 15 Million Euros in July 2020. Hee-Chan is an intelligent forward and he often gets into dangerous attacking areas and he is strong at finishing with a very high 66% shot accuracy attempting 2.38 shots per 90. One more reason why Hee-Chan hits the target so often is that he tends to ready himself before shooting by creating space either with his movement off-the-ball before receiving a pass or cross. Alternatively, Hee-Chan will fake shot to create the opening for him to accurately shoot at goal. Hee-Chan proved his ability to use his fake shot technique at the very highest level by performing this against Van Dijk in the Champions League before scoring. Although, Hee-Chan was able to perform well against Liverpool, he is still fairly unproven away from the RB Salzburg side as he only totalled 4 goal contributions when sent on loan to Hannover in the second division of Germany during the 2018-2019 season. Hee-Chan is strong at dribbling attempting an average of 5.42 dribbles per 90 with a 56% success rate and he completes a high average of 2 key passes per game. However, Hee-Chan only makes 1.30 crosses and 23 passes per 90 and so he may struggle to earn matchday dividends often. With strong attacking midfielders such as Sabitzer, Nkunku and Olmo creating opportunities for Hee-Chan next season, he could earn plenty of In-Play Dividends and he may occassionally earn matchday dividends by contributing towards a number of goals in a single game.

Price Analysis

Hwang Hee-Chan's price started the 2019-2020 season at just £0.28. Hee-Chan's price had been low due to having such a poor season for Hannover in 2.Bundesliga. Hee-Chan really broke onto the season during the 2019-2020 season by performing very well for RB Salzburg, contributing to plenty of goals and standing out in the Champions League group stages. Hee-Chan's price has increased to a current market price of £1.31 with an instant sell price of £1.18. Hee-Chan has been bought to replace Timo Werner, but he may still have to compete with other forwards at Leipzig. Overall, Hee-Chan appears a fairly strong hold at his current price given his potential to score many goals in a PB league and occassionally hit high PB scores. Furthermore, if he can bring his quality to the Bundesliga then he could gain transfer links in the future to a Premier League side which could lead to his price rising further.
