Hwang Hee-chan is expected to complete a move to RB Leipzig from RB Salzburg once the final fixtures of the Austrian league campaign have been played on Sunday, according to Kicker.


RB Leipzig have agreed a deal to sign the Korean striker for €15 million, according to Kicker and Sky, with the latter claiming that he has already put pen to paper on a contract with the Bundesliga side.

The 24-year-old will be brought in to replace Timo Werner, who recently left Leipzig for a move to Chelsea.

Hwang Hee-chan has made 39 appearances for RB Salzburg this season, racking up 16 goals and 22 assists.
