With Lee Kang-in’s multi-goal performance, can more teams that want him be added?
Lee Kang-in scored multiple goals in the home game against Getafe in the 30th round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022/23 season held at Estadi Mallorca Son Mosi, Mallorca, Spain on the 24th (Korean time), becoming the first contributor to the team’s 3-1 come-from-behind victory.
In the 11th minute of the second half, when Mallorca was being dragged by Borja Mayoral, Manu Morlanes’s shot bounced off after being blocked by opponent goalkeeper David Soria’s save, and Lee Kang-in quickly pushed it in to score the equalizer.
In the extra time of the second half, he drove the ball kicked from Mallorca’s penalty box and advanced directly to the Getafe penalty box, shaking Getafe’s net with an accurate left-footed shot and even scoring a key goal.
Lee Kang-in’s tremendous performance received favorable reviews from not only the La Liga secretariat, but also various statistical media and local Spanish media. Football statistics media outlets such as Whoscored.com and Footmob gave Lee Kang-in the highest rating and selected him as the best player of the game.
Spanish media Marca rated Lee Kang-in as “a great protagonist in the second half” and put it in the best 11 of the 30th round. In addition to Marka, Lee Kang-in won four crowns, including being in the best 11 of the 30th round selected by the La Liga Secretariat, whoscored.com and sofascore.
In the midst of this, some Spanish media even predicted that Lee Kang-in would be connected to famous clubs in the transfer market this summer with this activity.
On the 24th, AS, a Spanish media, evaluated Lee Kang-in’s performance under the title of ‘Lee Kang-in’s Message and True Growth’.
Ars said, “I already told Lee Kang-in right after the opening of the league that this season is not an ordinary season. He took a decisive step as a soccer player, and the time has come for him to break away from a standout player and become a reliable player who plays an active role.” He mentioned Lee Kang-in’s unusual start this season. 안전놀이터
“Lee Kang-in made clear progress against Getafe. He showed more even when other players were hiding. This summer, Lee Kang-in’s name can be associated with big teams, and the reason is that Lee Kang-in can do everything he wants on the pitch. It’s because I showed that I was ready,” he said, predicting that Lee Kang-in’s performance could lead to transfers to big clubs.
The possibility of Lee Kang-in’s transfer to the Premier League has already emerged in recent British and Spanish media reports.
In the report, it was reported that Premier League clubs such as Aston Villa, Wolverhampton, Newcastle, and Burnley wanted to recruit Lee Kang-in, even paying a buyout.
In the midst of this, AS’s comment seems to have predicted that if Lee Kang-in continues to play an active role, even higher-level teams can target Lee Kang-in.
In fact, when Lee Kang-in’s agent Javier Garrido visited England, he also raised expectations by visiting Manchester City and Manchester United in addition to Aston Villa and Wolverhampton. Of course, the visit to the club may be for a personal matter or for the transfer of a player other than Lee Kang-in.
Lee Kang-in, who has received a huge spotlight with his multi-goal performance, is expected to pay great attention to which big club he will be courted by in the transfer market this summer.
