With Lee Kang-in (22) certain to be transferred in the upcoming summer transfer market, his team, RCD Mallorca, sought a replacement player from Tottenham Hotspur.
Spain’s Elgol Digital reported on the 10th (Korean time) that Mallorca is aiming for Tottenham winger Brian Hill as a player to replace Lee Kang-in.
There are three main reasons why Mallorca is aiming for a heel. The first is the possibility of Lee Kang-in leaving, the second is the relationship with manager Javier Aguirre, and the third is the possibility of a realistic recruitment.
In the upcoming summer transfer market, the breakup between Mallorca and Lee Kang-in is certain. Lee Kang-in is not renewing his contract with Mallorca ahead of the contract expiration in 2025. In the winter transfer window in January, he received offers from Premier League clubs, including Spain’s Atletico Madrid, but Mallorca did not accept them and stayed.
Reporter Fabrizio Romano, a transfer market expert, said, “Lee Kang-in is expected to leave Mallorca in the transfer market this summer.” According to British and Spanish media, Newcastle United, which currently ranks third in the Premier League, is the most active. Along with this, Aston Villa and Burnley were mentioned as possible teams.
In addition, Mallorca is expected to leave Pablo Mateo and Vedat Muriki in addition to Lee Kang-in, so it is inevitable to reinforce the attacking team.
Hill is one of the promising youngsters in Spanish football. In Tottenham, he was only pushed by Son Heung-min, Hishalli Song, and Dejan Kulusevski, but he is evaluated as a player who will lead the Spanish football world in the future. Since last January, he has been loaned to Sevilla and has appeared in 9 matches, scoring 1 goal and 2 assists in the Primera Liga. 메이저놀이터
Hill was loaned to Leganes in the Spanish Primera Liga to gain experience in January 2020, when he was a member of Sevilla, and the manager was Aguirre. At the time, Aguirre was appointed as the new manager and led Leganes from November 2019.
Depending on Mallorca’s financial situation, a loan is more likely to recruit Hill than a transfer. Analysis that Tottenham is also open to leasing because Hill is evaluated as the future of the club. However, the variable is that Tottenham does not yet have a manager. Mallorca’s loan hopes will be dashed if the new manager decides to use Hill as a full force next season.
