Lee Kang-in was also connected to Tottenham Hotspur.
Britain’s ‘Team Talk크크크벳’ said on the 30th (hereinafter Korean time), “Tottenham is in an advantageous position in the war to recruit Lee Kang-in. He also attracted attention from Atletico Madrid. However, Tottenham is at the forefront to lure Lee Kang-in. Because Tottenham is Lee Kang-in. “Because there is no need to sell players before signing them, and Atlético must prioritize player sales.”
Recently, Lee Kang-in has been continuously connected with EPL clubs. In the winter transfer market last January, there were links with Newcastle United, Wolverhampton, and Brighton. However, the transfer did not happen in the end as Mallorca strongly refused to let him go.
The winter transfer has been canceled, but the possibility of leaving the upcoming summer team is increasing. In this situation, Lee Kang-in’s agent visited England and sparked rumors of a transfer. Agent Lee Kang-in posted pictures of his visits to Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Wolverhampton on his personal SNS.
In this situation, Atletico also participated in the recruitment war. On the 28th, reporter Mateo Moreto of Lelevo, Spain, said, “Atletico is very close to signing Lee Kang-in. Atletico has been interested in it since Valencia. At this time, I observed several times, but it was not put into action.” .
Big clubs’ interest in Lee Kang-in never seems to cool down. Two days after linking up with Atletico, the Tottenham link also came up. ‘Team Talk’ explained, “Tottenham is Son Heung-min’s main rival in recruiting a teammate from the national team. The opportunity to connect with Son Heung-min is an attractive option for Lee Kang-in.”
If Lee Kang-in wears a Tottenham uniform, what position will he stand in? This season, Tottenham took the 3-4-3 formation as their basic tactic. Two central midfielders were deployed, and Pierre-Emile Hoivier and Rodrigo Bentancur were the main players. However, the tactics are likely to change depending on which coach is appointed this summer.
Lee Kang-in could be a new option for Tottenham midfielder. After Christian Eriksen transferred, Tottenham steadily recruited the position, but all went back to failure. Tanguy Ndombele and Giovanni Lo Celso have all gone on loan. Currently, Tottenham’s midfielders do not have players who can play creative roles such as Hoibier, Bentancur, Yves Bisuma and Oliver Skip. Therefore, if Lee Kang-in transfers, there is a high possibility that he will have a competitive edge.
