British media warns Tottenham… “Are you going to miss the Son Heung-min-Lee Kang-in combination? Move quickly!”
Even in the UK, Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) and Lee Kang-in (22, Mallorca) are dreaming of a picture of playing in one team.
Britain’s메이저사이트‘Team Talk’ said on the 11th (Korean time), “Tottenham should immediately send an offer to sign Lee Kang-in, whom Son Heung-min likes. He has already received an offer from Atletico Madrid. To win the recruitment battle, we have to move very quickly.” warned.
Lee Kang-in has emerged as the ace of Mallorca by recording 6 goals and 4 assists in the league alone this season. He was recognized for his performances by being nominated for the La Liga Team of the season.
The upcoming summer transfer is close to a fait accompli. Lee Kang-in has a contract with Mallorca until the summer of 2025, but there are not one or two teams already targeting him. Even locally, his transfer is already regarded as a ‘matter of time’.
In particular, ‘La Liga strong’ Atletico is actively stepping out. As Atlético tried to recruit Lee Kang-in last winter, they are determined to embrace him this time. In addition, Aston Villa, Burnley, and Napoli are also known to be keeping an eye on Lee Kang-in.
Tottenham, where Son Heung-min plays, is also connected to Lee Kang-in. As Tottenham continues to look for a creative midfielder, Lee Kang-in with attacking talent could be a good choice. The transfer fee is reasonable as the buyout amount is known to be around 17 million euros (approximately 24.6 billion won).

Team Talk also urged Tottenham to sign Lee Kang-in. The media said, “If Harry Kane leaves Tottenham, Son Heung-min may form a new ‘fatal trio’ with Brighton ace Evan Ferguson and fellow Korean national teammate Lee Kang-in.” Considering his performance, it is a very cheap price in the transfer market right now.”
The media continued, “Attack midfielder Lee Kang-in can play on both sides. He performed shockingly in Spain this season and is receiving interest from Tottenham.” If they do, Tottenham must immediately jump in for the hijacking.”
Finally, the media expressed expectations, saying, “Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in have a good relationship, so they will get along really well. The two played together in the Korean national team several times earlier this year, including against Colombia and Uruguay.”
Meanwhile, according to Spain’s ‘As’, Atlético is reconsidering the recruitment of Lee Kang-in. This is because Rodrigo Riquelme, born in 2000, who is active on loan at Girona, is scheduled to return. As he too can play on the left wing, Atlético are said to be in a dilemma. If Atletico withdraws from the race to sign Lee Kang-in, it seems to be a good opportunity for Tottenham.
