Based on his performance in the league and World Cup this season, Lee Kang-in, who is receiving attention from European big league clubs, is narrowing his destination to the English stage.

Marka reported on the 9th (local time) that Aston Villa and Newcastle of the English Premier League (EPL) are showing interest in Lee Kang-in.
Although there has not been an official offer to recruit Lee Kang-in from Mallorca yet, it is analyzed that Lee Kang-in is highly likely to go to the EPL.
The reason for this was the abundant financial power of EPL clubs.
The buyout amount of Lee Kang-in, which Mallorca maintains, is known to be 17 million euros (approximately 22.6 billion won), but it is also not burdensome for teams such as Newcastle and Aston Villa, where Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund has virtually become the new owner. .
In addition to the EPL teams, it is understood that Burnley, the top team in the English Championship (second division), and Feyenoord, the prestigious Netherlands, also jumped into the race to recruit Lee Kang-in.
Lastly, Marca predicted that Mallorca did not want to let go of Lee Kang-in, who is growing remarkably with great success, but it would not be easy in the end.
