SON dreams of a Tottenham Korean duo recommended by Lee Kang-in ATM has other options than Lee Kang-in
England’s Tottenham dreams of forming a Korean duo. “Sonshine” Son Heung-min (31) and “Golden Boy” Lee Kang-in (22) will play together.
SpursOTM, which mainly deals with Tottenham’s news, quoted Spanish soccer reporter Miguel Angel Diaz on the 11th (Korea Standard Time), saying, “The teams competing to recruit Lee Kang-in are England Tottenham and Atletico Madrid (Spain),” adding, “Son Heung-min is believed to have advised Lee Kang-in to be a very important player.” Amid rumors of a transfer to Lee Kang-in, Tottenham and Atletico seem to be fiercely competing. Local media have been pouring out news day after day that the two teams are active in recruiting Lee Kang-in. Tottenham have a trump card. It is Son Heung-min, the captain of the Korean national soccer team. It can be of great help to recruit Lee Kang-in.
Team Talk in England also said, “Tottenham must move quickly to win Lee Kang-in’s recruitment match,” adding, “Son Heung-min will fit well with Lee Kang-in, who has a good relationship.” “They played together for the national team several times, including the A matches against Colombia and Uruguay in March,” he said in a positive view. The media predicted that if Tottenham’s main gun Harry Kane, who is connected to Manchester United, leaves the team, Lee Kang-in and Evan Ferguson could form a new three-top around Son Heung-min. Ferguson is a striker who plays for Brighton and Hove Albion. Tottenham are after it. A 19-year-old young Irish striker, he is a key member of the team in recognition of his potential. He has scored four goals in 14 league matches this season. He was also named in the Irish national team. He also scored a goal in a warm-up match against Latvia in March, leading his team to a 3-2 victory. It was Ferguson’s debut goal.
Tottenham has suffered from the lack of resources to inspire creativity since “Magician” Christian Eriksen (Manchester United) left the team. The recruitment of Tanggui Ndombele (Napoli) and Giovanni Rosselso (Villarreal), who were brought with great determination, failed, and sometimes Kane played the role of a playmaker, so his shoulders were heavy. It could be a great help if “attack genius” Lee Kang-in, who provides a big chance and also plays a troubleshooter, joins.
Another positive news for Tottenham is that Atletico have options other than Lee Kang-in. According to the media, Atletico can use Rodrigo Richelme of Spain’s under-21 national team, which has the same position as Lee Kang-in. He is on loan with Girona (Spain) this season, and he played well in 31 league games with four goals and three assists. Thanks to this, Girona is also ranked seventh in the league (33 points), which is better than expected. Atletico have a scenario of returning Richelme and adding him to the squad next season. In this case, there is nothing much urgent. There is a possibility that Lee Kang-in will be recruited with some effort
However, there is also a way for Atletico to hold Richelme while pushing to recruit Lee Kang-in. This is because Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is on the low side. Currently, Lee Kang-in is known to have a buyout clause of 17 million euros (about 25 billion won) that allows him to transfer without his team’s consent. Compared to Lee Kang-in’s great performance this season, it feels cheap. Lee Kang-in has played in 32 league games, scoring 6 goals and 4 assists, playing the role of Mallorca’s ace. Based on these performances, Lee Kang-in was also named 47 team candidates of the year by the Spanish Primera Liga secretariat. He was included in the midfielder section. He was joined by Ballon d’Or winner Luca Modric and world class Tony Cruz. 토토
Richelmeya can return without spending any money, and Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is not expensive. Team Talk also said, “Atletico may decide to recruit Lee Kang-in while holding Richelme due to its low price. Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is estimated at 17 million euros. “Recruitment of players who have shown outstanding performance in Spain’s top league is an inexpensive recruitment in the transfer market,” he praised. “Tottenham will hope Atletico will skip the opportunity to recruit Lee Kang-in. At the same time, Atletico will want to give Richelme time to play, he said. “If Atletico seeks to recruit Lee Kang-in, Tottenham should immediately start hijacking.”
Atletico also attempted to recruit Lee Kang-in last winter. Lee Kang-in also wanted a new challenge. However, it did not happen in the face of strong opposition from Mallorca. In the end, Lee Kang-in remained. Nevertheless, he will not give up and start recruiting again this summer. Atletico is considered the top three in La Liga along with Barcelona and Real Madrid. He is also ranked second in the league (69 points) this season. He is likely to advance to the European Champions League next season. It is an attractive factor for Lee Kang-in, who has to grow up against world-class players. Earlier, Spain’s Pichares said, “Atletico coach Diego Simeone has asked the board to recruit three players to reinforce the team squad.” Lee Kang-in, Spanish Elche striker Lucas Boye, and French Paris Saint-Germain multi-player Carlos Soler are the main characters. Regarding Lee Kang-in, he said, “He is Korea’s attacking midfielder,” adding, “Lee Kang-in, who is only 22 years old, has a bright future.” “I can be a key member of Simeone in the future,” he said highly
