Lee Kang-in Hwang Hee-chan and Hansot Bob Leipzig interest Valencia demand 13.6 billion won
Lee Kang-in (20, Valencia) is receiving Leipzig’s attention.
Lee Kang-in is a youth resource that Valencia has cherished. He has been recognized for his outstanding potential since childhood, drawing high expectations. He made his first appearance in the first team of the 2018-19 season and made his debut goal in the 2019-20 season. Lee Kang-in played David Silva’s rising play. He was praised for repeatedly showing sharp key passes and de-pressure in his attacking midfielder position.
However, he rarely received a chance compared to his ability. In particular, he was completely shunned by manager Harvey Gracia last season. He played 24 games, but only played 1,267 minutes. It was only 52 minutes per game. It was a significant lack of time compared to players of the same age group.
It often started on the bench. Even when he started, he was replaced as the top player. Gracia was the first to call in Lee Kang-in, even though he was struggling alone in the offensive. Lee Kang-in once openly expressed regret. In the end, Lee Kang-in is dreaming of a new challenge away from Valencia. Valencia is also known to be willing to sell to secure funds.
Several teams have emerged as their next destination. Given Lee Kang-in’s age and skills, the reason was that there was sufficient potential for potential growth. Teams having difficulty in developing attacks have paid particular attention. From Spanish teams, love calls continued in Europe’s top five big leagues, including England, Germany, France and Italy.
Recently, Leipzig also showed interest. Leipzig is a new Bundesliga powerhouse and currently plays by Hwang Hee-chan. “Todopichahes” of Spain said on July 31 (Korea time), “Market evaluation of Lee Kang-in is high. The same goes for Leipzig, and he is also sending his intention to recruit him. Leipzig said, “We are planning to bring Lee Kang-in through the transfer market in preparation for the departure of Marcel Savitzer.”
“Valencia is asking for 10 million euros (approximately 13.6 billion won). Leipzig thinks it is worth the investment. Leipzig will wait for Lee Kang-in to return to Valencia and watch the situation.
