‘Left-footed wizard’ midfielder Lee Kang-in (22, South Korea) is approaching his entry into the English Premier League. West Ham United, a club based in London, is also showing interest in Lee Kang-in and coveting him.
On the 21st (Korean time), the local site ‘Green Street Hammers’, which mainly deals with news related to the West Ham club, reported that West Ham is aiming to recruit Lee Kang-in. He added that it was a recruitment in preparation for the transfer of midfielders such as Declan Rice, Manuel Lanzini, and Thomas Sucek in the upcoming summer.
He then gave details about Lee Kang-in. The current buyout amount is £15.8 million (approximately 26 billion won), and after West Ham said they were willing to pay this fee, they said they could play a versatile role in midfield with the news of Atletico Madrid’s attempt to sign them in January. . In particular, he introduced that his strengths are fast passing and direct and fast dribbling, and that he can play as an attacking midfielder or winger.메이저놀이터
He also talked about his national team career. He made his debut in the Korean national team in 2019 and has played 12 games so far, and in the national team by age, he also won the tournament MVP Golden Boy at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
If he eventually moves to West Ham, he predicts he will play as Lucas Paqueta’s back-up. Paqueta, who is from the Brazilian national team and is active as an attacking midfielder at West Ham, entered the Premier League last summer. After moving to West Ham from French Ligue 1 Olympique Lyonnais, he immediately took up the starting position. He has scored two goals and provided two assists in 21 Premier League appearances this season.
He mainly plays as an attacking midfielder, but has a wide range of defensive participation. He also excels at exchanging passes from teammates and shaking up opposing defenses. He is one of the reasons for such a successful soft landing in the high-pressure Premier League. The fact that he is left-footed is something in common with Lee Kang-in.
He also has ties to Korea. Paqueta scored his team’s fourth goal in the FIFA World Cup round of 16 match against South Korea last year in Qatar.
