Tottenham Hotspur is also interested in signing Lee Kang-in.
Currently, Lee Kang-in is at the center of the transfer theory. Last winter, there were reports that several English Premier League (EPL) clubs were interested in Lee Kang-in.
There is no end to Lee Kang-in’s interest. This time, it is reported that Tottenham is interested in Lee Kang-in. Spain’s Mundo Deportivo reported that Tottenham is interested in signing Lee Kang-in, saying, “Atletico’s main rivals are EPL clubs, and teams like Tottenham are also interested in signing Lee Kang-in.” 스포츠토토
Lee Kang-in is a typical playmaker with creativity. He is also the type of player Tottenham are looking for. Tottenham have been constantly looking for a creative attacking midfielder since the departure of Christian Eriksen. Considering that players such as James Madison and Ruslan Malinowski, who have been linked to Tottenham so far, are playmakers, it is not strange that Lee Kang-in is connected to Tottenham.
Besides, Tottenham has Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min, a colleague and senior of the Korean national team, has lived in England long enough to help Lee Kang-in adapt, and his position in Tottenham is solid. The existence of Son Heung-min is a story that must come out when dealing with the possibility of Lee Kang-in’s transfer to Tottenham.
But if you look at it coldly, it’s true that it’s hard to say for sure that Tottenham is a better option than Atletico. First of all, as Lee Kang-in has been living in Spain for a long time, considering the environmental aspects, he will have less difficulty adapting to Atletico than Tottenham.
The team situation is the same. Tottenham is currently competing for the 4th place in the league to obtain a ticket to the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), but for now it is likely to finish 5th or 6th to participate in the UEFA Europa League (UEL). In the worst case, Liverpool and Aston Villa may fail to advance to the European competition.
On the other hand, Atletico is currently in third place in the league after Barcelona and Real Madrid, and is a team that consistently participates in the UCL even if it is not this season. As much as it is better to participate in higher competitions to gain more experience, it is undeniable that Lee Kang-in’s move to a team that participates in the UCL is better.
