The 'new Kun Aguero', the man chosen to succeed Werner
RB Leipzig are looking for an ideal replacement for Timo Werner, a player who makes them forget about the goals the German striker has been scoring. That is because Werner looks all set to join Chelsea in the summer.
His subsitute could well be Hee-Chan Hwang. The Bundesliga outfit are studying whether to resort to RB Salzburg to take the South Korean, one of the sensations at the club.
At 24, Hee-Chan has now played a total of 119 competitive matches for the Austrian outfit and scored a total of 43 times. His figures have been improving considerably and he has scored 14 goals and given 13 assists in 33 official matches this term.
Leipzig would get around 60 million euros if they sell Werner as that is the player's buyout clause. The club could use that money to buy a quality replacement like Hee-Chan.
'Bild' are reporting about this possible transfer and that many are comparing him with Kun Aguero, due to how he is on the field.
