Tottenham eye second South Korean sensation with Levy prepared to rival European giants for £15m star
Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing highly-rated Real Mallorca attacker Kang-In Lee this summer, according to reports.
The South Korea international could potentially join his compatriot Heung-min Son at the London club, as Daniel Levy eyes reinforcements for his squad.

Indeed, as noted by TEAMtalk, Atletico Madrid are also interested in signing the Real Mallorca star. However, he may find a move to the Premier League difficult to resist.
Lee has made 31 league appearances for Los Piratas this season, scoring six goals and making five assists in the process. At the age of 22, his potential is sky-high and has already proven he can be dangerous going forward.
