Report claims Wolves are in the mix to sign Valencia's Lee Kang-in

Wolves are among the clubs chasing Valencia midfielder Lee Kang-in, according to reports from Spain.

Super Deporte claim that a host of teams are chasing the South Korea international this summer.

Wolves are in the mix, alongside Champions League clubs Milan and Atletico Madrid.

Napoli and Fiorentina are also keen, thanks in part to his contract situation. His current deal only has a year left to run.

That means that a cut-price deal is apparently on the cards, although no transfer fee is mooted in the report.

Lee is 20 years old, with a bright future ahead of him but didn’t have the best season for Valencia.

He didn’t score a league goal all season and laid on just four assists in 27 appearances across all competitions.

Would he be a good signing?

This writer can’t profess to being an expert on Spanish football or Lee’s performances.

The calibre of the clubs interested suggest that he has got ability and that it would be a coup if Wolves can pull it off.

But Wolves will surely want to wait until their new manager is appointed – thought to be Bruno Lage.

There’s no point buying Lee if Lage isn’t a fan or he doesn’t fit into what the new manager is trying to do, after all.
