Lee Jae-Sung: Being scouted by Premier League sides

A number of Premier League clubs are tracking highly-rated South Korea international Lee Jae-Sung, sources have told www.teamtalk.com.

Lee is regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in Asian football after impressing for club and country over the last 12 months.

The attacking midfielder is currently plying his trade in the K League with Keonbuk Hyundai Motors and he helped them reach the 2015 Asian Champions League quarter-finals last season.

Lee has established himself as a key member of the South Korea national team and has netted four goals in 14 appearances for his country.

His form has brought him to the attention of a host of clubs in Europe with several Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Premier League sides weighing up moves for Lee this summer.

Lee’s talents and his commericial opportunities in Asia make him an attractive proposition to his suitors and Keonbuk Hyundai Motors are bracing themselves for offer for their prize asset this summer.
