A player Wolves were linked with only a couple of months ago is apparently set to be sold this summer.

Kang-in Lee of Valencia had been linked with Real Betis.

According to Tribuna Deportiva Valencia journalist Hector Gomez and Gols Media, a swap deal involving the striker Loren Moren had been proposed.

But it has apparently fallen through due to concerns relating to FFP.

Gomez has said on Twitter that Valencia will still look to cash in on Lee though, as the player doesn’t intend to renew his contract with the club.

His current deal expires next summer.

Therefore he is forcing the Spanish side’s hand.

Wolves were linked with a move to Lee back in June and were supposedly one of a number of clubs looking at the talented South Korean.


Lee’s contract situation, and Valencia’s great need for cash led Deporte Valenciano to claim earlier this week that €10 million/£8.5 million could be enough for them to sell.

Wolves to make late swoop?

It is not a position of priority, but perhaps Wolves should still give this situation some attention.

Lee is a young player with vast potential and is technically gifted.

Joao Moutinho will likely be playing his last season for the club. Wolves do need to think about a long-term replacement.

Lee has just provided a reminder of what he can do by scoring three goals for his country at the Tokyo Olympics.

Put simply, it would be a bargain if someone snagged him for just £8.5 million. It remains to be seen if Wolves could be that club.
