Wolves transfer news: Kang-in Lee set to leave Mallorca this summer

Kang-in Lee is expected to leave Mallorca this summer, which could put Wolves on alert.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the attacking midfielder is being monitored by Premier League clubs.

He says ‘there are good chances for Lee to try a new challenge in England’.

In 29 appearances, he has scored three goals and made five assists.

Lee’s goal output numbers may not be particularly high. But the youngster has dazzled this term with his brilliant technical quality and ability to create chances.

Lee is in his second season with Mallorca after sealing a move from Valencia and he is a firm favourite at the club.

But it looks as though he could be off this summer.

Prior to this update from Romano, there were reports about clubs being interested in Lee.

He was a player that was reportedly on Wolves’ radar not to long ago.

Wolves actually wanted to sign Lee before he made his move to Mallorca. It was then reported by MARCA a couple of months ago that several Premier League clubs were on his tail.

It remains to be see if he will indeed finally leave Spain. It’s thought he has a release clause of around £15 million.

Wolves should not think twice about moving for Kang-in Lee

If Lee is ready for a new challenge, then Wolves have got to be all over this.

Lee has the potential to be a top-class player in a few years.

Some will remember him playing for Korea at the World Cup. He didn’t feature heavily, but always made in impact when he was on.

And then, Adama Traore is also expected to leave.

Lee can play in the middle or out wide, so he is someone the club should definitely look at.

Perhaps Hwang Hee-chan, who knows Lee from South Korea national team, could help persuade him to come.

Any move though, of course, would likely depend on Wolves retaining their Premier League status.
