Wolves transfer news: Kang-in Lee could leave Mallorca amid serious Premier League interest

Reported Wolves target Kang-in Lee could be on the move this month, with interest in the midfielder rising.

Lee also caught the eye at the World Cup with South Korea.

According to MARCA, a number of clubs are on his tail at the moment.

He has serious options to leave, and Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Burnley are all keen, as are Feyenoord.

There haven’t yet been any offers placed for Lee. But it is expected that they will come soon.

Scouts have been present at Mallorca games to watch Lee recently. They apparently watched him in action against Atletico Madrid in November.

Mallorca apparently know that they will not be able to hang onto Lee for long.

He has a clause of around £15 million, which will not be a problem for Premier League clubs.

The Spanish outfit would like to retain Lee until the end of the season. But it will be very difficult given the level of interest in the player and that relatively low clause.

Lee is a fantastic, technical and creative midfielder with big potential. So there is a very strong possibility he will depart this month.

Wolves have also been linked with a move for Lee back in November.

And that came after links to the player while he was still at Valencia.

Kang-in Lee would be a very exciting signing for Wolves, but Julen Lopetegui will have to hurry up with interest growing

It is looking like the chances of Lee remaining a Mallorca player beyond the January window are very low.

Interest is high in the playmaker and it is little wonder.

At the weekend, Lee started on the bench for Mallorca against Real Valladolid.

He came on with around half an hour to go, and made five key passes – more than any other player in the game (Sofascore).

Creating chances is what he does. According to Football Talent Scout, no player has created more ‘big chances’ in La Liga this season than him (2.1 key passes per 90, eight big chances created, four assists).

If Wolves do have an interest, then club officials might want to get to work now in the form of placing an offer.
