Rouven Schröder could use the Girondins Bordeaux bankruptcy estate. According to a report from ‘Calciomercato.com’, FC Schalke 04 have inquired about Ui-jo Hwang from Girondins Bordeaux. The same applies to the English club West Ham United.
The background: Due to the forced relegation of Girondins, Hwang, like many of his teammates, is very cheap. The third French division should not be an option for the 29-year-old Korean, after all he scored eleven goals in Ligue 1 last season.
For their part, Schalke were already very active on the previous transfer market. Apart from the previous loan player Marvin Pieringer (22), no other center forward has been signed. And support for second division record scorer Simon Terodde (34) and his strike partner Marius Bülter (29) would be appropriate.
