Europa League… ‘Teacher’ Morinho’s AS Roma beat Alonso’s Leverkusen

Tottenham of England dreams of forming a Korean duo. “Son Shine” Son Heung-min (31) and “Golden Boy” Lee Kang-in (22) will play together.

Spurs OTM토스카지노, which mainly deals with Tottenham’s news, quoted Spanish soccer reporter Miguel Angel Diaz on the 11th (Korean time) and said, “The teams competing to recruit Lee Kang-in are England’s Tottenham and Atletico Madrid (Spain).” It is believed that he advised him that he would become a very important player.” Amid rumors of various transfers for Lee Kang-in, it seems that Tottenham and Atletico are competing fiercely. Local media are pouring out news that these two teams are actively recruiting Lee Kang-in. Tottenham has a trump card. It is Son Heung-min, the “captain” of the Korean national soccer team. It can be of great help in recruiting Lee Kang-in.

England’s Team Talk also said, “Tottenham needs to move quickly to win Lee Kang-in’s recruitment battle,” but also said, “Son Heung-min will get along well with Lee Kang-in, who has a good relationship. They played several times in the national team, including an A match with Colombia and Uruguay in March. We played together,” he said positively. The media predicted that if Harry Kane, the main goalkeeper of Tottenham, who is connected to Manchester United, leaves the team, Kang-in Lee and Evan Ferguson can form a new three-top centered on Heung-Min Son. Ferguson is a striker who plays for Brighton and Hove Albion. Tottenham are looking. He is a 19-year-old young Irish striker, but he has been recognized for his potential and is playing as a key member. He scored 4 goals in 14 league appearances this season. He was also named in the Ireland national team. He also scored a goal against Latvia last March, leading the team to a 3-2 victory. It was Ferguson’s debut goal.

Tottenham suffered from lack of resources to inspire creativity after ‘magician’ Christian Eriksen (Man United) left the team. The signings of Tanguy Ndombele (Napoli) and Giovanni Rosselso (Villarreal), which were brought with a big heart, failed, and Kane sometimes took on the role of playmaker, putting a heavy burden on his shoulders. If Lee Kang-in, an ‘offensive genius’ who provides a big chance and digests a solver at the same time, joins, it can be a great help.

Another positive news for Tottenham is that Atletico has other options besides Lee Kang-in. According to the media, Atlético can use Rodrigo Riquelme, the Spanish under-21 national team, who has the same position as Lee Kang-in. He has been spending this season on loan at Girona (Spain), and has performed well, scoring 4 goals and 3 assists in 31 league appearances. Thanks to this, Girona is also achieving more than expected, such as climbing to 7th place in the league (33 points). Atlético have a scenario of returning Riquelme and adding them to their squad next season. In this case, there is no need to rush. There is a possibility that Lee Kang-in will be recruited with some strength.

However, there is also a way for Atletico to pursue Lee Kang-in while retaining Riquelme. This is because Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is on the cheap side. Currently, Lee Kang-in is known to have a 17 million euro (approximately 25 billion won) buyout clause that allows him to transfer without the consent of his team. Compared to Lee Kang-in’s performance this season, it feels cheap. Lee Kang-in 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 as one of the 47 candidates for Team of the Year selected by the Spanish Primera Liga Secretariat. He was included in the midfield part. He joined Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric and world class Toni Kroos among others.

It is possible because Riquelmeya can return without spending a single penny, and Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is not expensive. Team Talk also said, “Atletico may decide to recruit Lee Kang-in while retaining Riquelme because of the low price. Lee Kang-in’s transfer fee is estimated at 17 million euros. Recruitment,” he said. He emphasized, “Tottenham will want Atletico to skip the opportunity to sign Lee Kang-in. At the same time, Atletico will want to give Riquelme time to play.” did.

Atletico tried to recruit Lee Kang-in last winter. Lee Kang-in also wanted a new challenge. However, it did not come true due to strong opposition from Mallorca. In the end, Lee Kang-in stayed. Even so, I will not give up and will recruit again this summer. Atletico is one of the three leaders in La Liga, along with Barcelona and Real Madrid. This season, they are also in second place in the league (69 points). There is a strong possibility of advancing to the European Champions League next season. This is an attractive factor for Lee Kang-in, who has to grow up with world-class players. Earlier, Spain’s Pichajes said, “Atletico coach Diego Simeone asked the board to recruit three players to reinforce the team’s squad.” Including Lee Kang-in, Spain’s Elche striker Lucas Boye and Paris Saint-Germain’s multiplayer Carlos Soler are the main characters. Regarding Lee Kang-in, he said, “Korea’s offensive midfielder,” and “Lee Kang-in, who is only 22 years old, has a bright future. He can become a key member of coach Simeone in the future.”
