RMC Sport report today that Marseille are looking at Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-jo as a potential replacement for Elche-bound forward Darío Benedetto.
Les Girondins are looking to sell the South Korea international for no less than €10m, with two years left on his contract with the club. Nevertheless, OM are looking to bring in a forward either on loan or for an insignificant fee – as a result, any approach for Hwang will come towards the end of the window.
The 28-year-old has been with Bordeaux since 2019, after signing from Gamba Osaka, and scored 12 Ligue 1 goals last season. Jorge Sampaoli is said to have been impressed by the striker, notably by his speed and hi involvement going forward.
