RB Leipzig have completed the signing of Hee-chan Hwang from RB Salzburg.
The 24-year-old striker has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with RB Leipzig and will wear the number 11 for his new club.
"In Hee-chan Hwang we have signed a player who fits the profile of what we are looking for. He can play in any attacking position, on the wings or as a main man in the middle. He makes our attack more flexible with his speed and mobility. He had a great season in Austria, as both a goalscorer and provider, and he particularly impressed in the Champions League," said RB Leipzig sporting director Markus Krösche in a statement.
Hee-chan Hwang said:
"I'm excited for the new challenge at RB Leipzig! I want to help the team continue to be as successful as possible and achieve this young club's ambitious goals. The club’'s aims and style of football are both perfect for me. I want to take my next step as a professional here in Leipzig. On top of that, I want to score as many goals as possible."
Hwang Hee-chan made 40 appearances for RB Salzburg in the 2019/20 season, scoring 16 goals and making 22 assists.
