Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is impressed with new signing Hwang Hee-chan.

The South Korean attacker has made an impression since arriving from RB Leipzig on loan in the summer.

Jimenez not only sees Hee-Chan as a potential top class Premier League attacker, but believes he has similarities to Liverpool's Diogo Jota, who was previously at Wolves.

The 30-year-old said, via the Express & Star: "Maybe they are similar. They have different characteristics but they are a little bit similar. They are different players and it's good to have that kind of player with us."

He added: "It's good for us that he has set up quickly.

"It's good to know that he's comfortable with the team. It's on loan now but he gives everything to the club like he has a permanent deal with us. It's good to have him.

"He's a good player who runs for every ball in the game.

"I have to link up with all of my team-mates because this is part of the team, the strikers have to link up. There are moments. For a season I was with Jota, the second season with Adama, last season I didn't play and now with Hwang.

"I have to be there knowing the characteristics of my team-mates and knowing what we have to do, and can do together."
