Norwich City have submitted a late enquiry to try and sign Nottingham Forest forward Hwang Ui-Jo, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.
The Canaries have missed out on the signing of Kieffer Moore and are desperately searching for another forward to bring in before the window closes for the summer.
Who ue Hwang Ui-Jo?
The 31-year-old joined Nottingham Forest from Bordeaux in August 2022 for approximately €4 million. He’s made 56 caps for South Korea, scoring 17 goals.
Since arriving at the City Ground, Ui-Jo is still yet to make his debut for the club, instead falling further down the pecking order and has been an unused substitute in three of the club’s four matches so far this season.
A great start
Norwich City have had a strong summer window and have taken ten points from their first four matches in the Championship so far this season. They drew 4-4 with Southampton but won the other three matches.
The club have won four straight matches in a row, scoring nine goals and conceding once. Norwich City have also moved into the next round of the EFL Cup after their victory against Bristol City.
However, the club are two points behind Leicester City in the Championship standings although there are still over 40 matches left of the season.
What’s been said?
Journalist Pete O’Rourke posted a tweet which stated…
‘Norwich City are in talks to beat the transfer deadline to sign Nottingham Forest forward Hwang Ui-Jo on loan.’
I don’t know much about the player but Norwich has missed out on Jordan Hugill and was always likely to pursue another forward before the window closes.
The forward needs first-team football after a busy summer in Nottingham and a move into the Championship could be exactly what he needs to rebuild his career.
