Lee Jae-Sung: Attracting Premier League interest

Several Premier League clubs, including Tottenham and Leicester are tracking South Korea international Lee Jae-Sung, sources have told www.teamtalk.com.

Lee has been on the radar of a number of clubs across Europe in recent months after impressing for his club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and the South Korea national team.

Scouts are understood to be watching Lee in action in Tuesday’s Asia AFC Champions League quarter-final against Sven Goran Eriksson’s Shanghai SIPG as they weigh up moves for the winger before the close of the transfer window at the end of the month.

Tottenham have been keeping tabs on his progress for some time, while Premier League champions Leicester have also been alerted to Lee potential with his ommericial opportunities in Asia making him an attractive proposition to his Premier League suitors.

Lee is under contract at Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors until December and they could be tempted to cash-in on the attacker this month rather than risk letting the player run down his contract.
