Hwang Hee-chan is on the verge of joining RB Leipzig from RB Salzburg, according to Sky Germany and reports from South Korea.


The Bundesliga side are understood to have won the race for the Korean international's signature, seeing off competition from the likes of Liverpool and Wolverhampton, with a deal worth €10 million set to be completed in the near future.

RB Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund recently confirmed RB Leipzig's interest in the 24-year-old, who has just one year left on his deal with the Austrian champions.

The Korean striker has made 38 appearances for RB Salzburg this season, racking up 16 goals and 21 assists.
