Arsenal, Crystal Palace watching South Korea star Hwang Hee-chan

Arsenal are watching South Korea star forward Hwang Hee-chan.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal and Crystal Palace are among the Premier League clubs keeping a close eye on Salzburg forward Hwang.

Hwang has been watched carefully by scouts from major European leagues in the last three seasons but produced a breakthrough performance for his club in their 4-3 Champions League defeat at Liverpool last week.

The South Korea international, who is good friends with Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son, has seven goals in 11 matches this season, including two in two in Europe.

Hwang, 23, is under contract in Austria until the end of next season and is likely to move this summer, if he can maintain current form.
