Wolverhampton Wanderers have been snubbed by Valencia forward Lee Kang-in, according to a report from El Desmarque.
Valencia, who finished in 13th last season, need to sell the South Korean before they can register another non-EU player in the form of Brazilian forward Marcos Andre. However, he has now rebuffed the advances of four different clubs, including Wolves and Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco.
He is apparently willing to run down the final year of his contract and leave on a free transfer next summer if no satisfactory proposal arrives.
The lowdown on Wolves target Lee Kang-in
Lee, who can operate as an attacking midfielder and on either flank, has made 62 appearances for Valencia, scoring just three times and providing four assists (via Transfermarkt).
The 20-year-old has earned six caps for South Korea, having made his senior debut in September 2019. He featured for his country at the Olympic Games earlier this summer and scored three times in Tokyo.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the report about his Molineux snub, and here’s what some supporters made of it.
Wolves fans bemoan Lee Kang-in news
“Joke club at the moment. All the people over the last few weeks saying “just wait and see”, “watch what happens”, “they know what they’re doing””
“We are Rejected FC”
“Why do we continue to go for players who don’t want to come”
“Why does it feel like no one wants to play for us? Not even our own players”
“Lol, and that’s why we keep going back to the Portuguese well. No more Kang-In rumors please, another window of this and he’s easily hitting Talisca levels.”
“Wish we’d look elsewhere then, sick of seeing his name now”
In other news, many Wolves fans were left fuming by this Bruno Lage admission.
