RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Hwang Hee-chan from Salzburg for a reported initial fee of €9m which could rise.
The 24-year-old has been in excellent form this season for the Austrian Bundesliga champion, scoring 11 goals and assisting a further 12 in the league to earn himself a 73 FC Rating.
Leipzig have been quick to act to replace Timo Werner, who has already agreed on a move to Chelsea. The German was their top scorer in the Bundesliga with 28 goals, averaging a strike every 100 minutes.
With Hee-Chan set to join, it is unclear whether Julian Nagalesmann sees the South Korean as a direct replacement for Werner or whether he will delve further into the transfer market to bolster his forward line.
In January, Wolves were reportedly interested in the forward, but any potential move away from Salzburg was stopped after they sold Erling Haaland to Borussia Dortmund, leaving them slightly light in personnel up top.
Hee-chan will join up with Leipzig soon, but will be unavailable for selection in their upcoming Champions League fixtures, with the draw for the mini tournament set to take place on Friday.
He has plied his trade in the Bundesliga before, having featured for Hamburg in the 2018/19 campaign.
