It seems that Aston Villa’s interest in Lee Kang-in has fallen.
The British Birmingham Mail said on the 18th (Korean time), “It seems that the rumors of Lee Kang-in’s recruitment have disappeared. It has become really quiet. There is no news even among fellow reporters in Mallorca.”
Lee Kang-in, who is playing as an ace for his team Mallorca this season, has been linked with La Liga and other Premier League teams.
In La Liga, Atletico Madrid, which is called the top three along with Real Madrid and Barcelona, showed the greatest interest, and in the Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, and Aston Villa were mentioned as candidates.
However, the situation surrounding Lee Kang-in has changed rapidly recently. Atletico, which was expected to be the most likely place, pulled out due to a difference in position in the transfer fee.
Spain’s Marca said, “Atletico is feeling the burden of Lee Kang-in’s buyout of 18 million euros (about 26 billion won). It looks difficult,” he said.
In this situation, the possibility of going to Villa gradually decreased. Reports have emerged that Villa coach Unai Emery is showing greater interest in Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio and Barcelona’s Ferran Torres instead of Lee Kang-in.
Here, the Birmingham Mail, a villa local newspaper, clearly states that “it has become really quiet” and seems to be completely excluded.
The media added, “There is no additional news since the report that Atletico, who was the leading player, will not pay Lee Kang-in’s buyout. We have to wait and see if Villa will sign.”메이저사이트
Lee Kang-in is raising the most attack points in his personal career this season with 6 goals and 4 assists. He has become a player not only in Mallorca but also in the entire La Liga, such as being nominated for Player of the Month in April.
Mallorca adheres to the position that they must pay a buyout to take Lee Kang-in, but Lee Kang-in hinted at his intention to transfer, such as ‘unfollowing’ the club’s social media account.
Currently, the only place promoting the recruitment of Lee Kang-in is Napoli, Italy, where Kim Min-jae’s team has enjoyed the effect of recruiting Korean players. This is also a composition that competes with Japanese national team midfielder Kubo Takefusa.
