Selling ‘Hero of Germany’ and recruiting Lee Kang-in? Naples ‘Korean No. 2’ project

Min-jae Kim’s team, Italy’s Serie A Napoli, is making a concrete plan to recruit Lee Kang-in.

The scenario is that they sell Irving Lozano, a Mexican striker who contributed to the Serie A championship this season as a right winger for Napoli, and recruit Lee Kang-in as one of the alternatives. If Napoli sells Rossano at the amount they think, it is expected that they will be able to make up for the Lee Kang-in transfer fee paid to Mallorca.안전놀이터

Lozano, who moved to Napoli from PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands in the summer of 2019 for 38 million euros, contributed to the championship by scoring 3 goals in 32 matches in Serie A this season. However, it is true that the explosive power is lower than in the 2020/21 season, when he scored 11 goals in 32 matches, so Napoli is seeking to sell him, a high-paid player in the team.

Lozano scored the final shot against Germany at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and became the main player in Mexico causing the first surprise in the tournament and destroying the defending champion. I came to Naples with such a career and more, and in fact, there were many cases of forming a three-top with Hvitza Kvarachhelia and Victor Osimen this season. However, the prospect that it will be possible to renew the contract with a salary increase for Kvarachhelia, who has grown into a key winger in Napoli this year, is gaining persuasiveness only if Rossano is sent elsewhere.

In the meantime, the prospect of selling Rossano and buying young wingers such as Lee Kang-in with the money from it came out.

On the 24th, Il Martino, a leading newspaper in Naples, announced this while reporting the Napoli club’s move to reorganize its power for the next season.

The newspaper said, “Napoli will offer a new contract to Rossano, who has one year left before the expiration of the contract. Perhaps, he will receive an offer to cut his annual salary of 4 million euros (about 5.8 billion won),” he said. “Napoli will evaluate the offer from the club. French Olympique Lyonnais can offer a transfer fee of 20 million euros (approximately 39 billion won).”

Then, if Rossano leaves, Napoli pointed out Lee Kang-in as a player that Napoli can bring. The newspaper, which named US national team midfielder Taylor Booth, who plays in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and Japanese national team Daichi Kamada, who will appear in the transfer market this summer on a free contract, and Danish national team Jesper Lindström, who plays in Frankfurt with Kamada, said, “Mallorca’s Korean midfielder Lee Kang-in is also on the (recruitment candidate) list.”

Considering that if Lee Kang-in leaves Mallorca this summer, the transfer fee will be around 15 million euros, there is a good chance that Napoli will sell Rossano and bring Lee Kang-in in to use as a midfielder and winger.

Since the beginning of this month, there have been reports that Naples is observing Lee Kang-in.

At first, it seemed that Lee Kang-in’s name was added as he was aiming for Hwang In-beom, who plays for Olympiacos in Greece, but Hwang In-beom disappeared from the media recently, and Lee Kang-in continues to attract attention.

It is known that Napoli and Mallorca are planning a friendly match in Korea early next month. Through the clash between the two teams, attention was paid to whether Lee Kang-in’s move to Naples would gain momentum.
