South Korean national soccer team midfielder Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) is predicted to leave during the upcoming summer transfer window. It is a report that multiple clubs in the English Premier League (EPL) are monitoring the situation closely.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert in the European football transfer market, said on social network service (SNS) on the 2nd (Korean time), “Lee Kang-in is expected to leave Mallorca this summer. He is receiving interest from multiple EPL clubs.” If it does, it will be a good opportunity to take on new challenges in England while bringing money and profits to Mallorca.”
This is not the first time Lee Kang-in has been linked with an EPL club. Previously, during the winter transfer market in January, transfer rumors appeared as they received attention from Newcastle United and Aston Villa. He led the English Football League (EFL) Championship (second division) and was linked with Burnley, who was about to be promoted.
In particular, there was an analysis that the possibility of transfer was ‘90%’. However, Lee Kang-in ultimately stayed. This is because Mallorca had no plans to send out key players during the season, and they firmly drew a line that they would not sell unless a transfer allowance (buyout) was presented.
However, Lee Kang-in still wants a new challenge, and in the midst of this, he is promoting a transfer this summer. Coincidentally, Mallorca also judged that the departure of its key players was inevitable and was looking for a replacement. This is the background to the reappearance of the EPL transfer rumor.
Lee Kang-in continues to grow this season and is showing off his outstanding performance. He is recording 3 goals and 5 assists in 29 games (26 starts) in all competitions this season, with brilliant skills, sharp kicks and creativity. He is exerting enormous influence not only in attack points but also in attack areas. In particular, his ability to release pressure is a hot topic in every game. 메이저사이트
Not only that, but he showed a dazzling performance even wearing the Taegeuk mark. As soon as Lee Kang-in entered the 2022 International Football Federation (FIFA) Qatar World Cup group stage game against Ghana as a substitute, he helped Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai) with a sharp left-footed kick to score a header goal. I did my part. Last month, he was called by manager Jurgen Klinsmann (58, Germany) and showed amazing performances by playing in both games. In particular, he shone the most while playing full-time against Uruguay.
In fact, at the official press conference after the game, coach Klinsman praised Lee Kang-in, saying, “Lee Kang-in showed a really good performance. He made it difficult for the Uruguayan defenders, and the only thing that could stop him was a foul.”
