The European transfer rumors for Suwon FC’s Lee Seung-woo have resurfaced once again.
Recently, Italian media such as Calcio Hellas reported that Frosinone, which was promoted to Serie A this season, is interested in signing Lee Seung-woo.
“It is true that Frosinone made an offer for Lee Seung-woo in the summer market,” Lee Seung-jun, who represents Lee in Korea, told KBS.
“We are currently in personal negotiations with Frosinone, but there are differences of opinion on details such as salary, so we are in the process of coordinating,” Lee said.
Despite the flood of European transfer rumors, including concrete offers, Lee is said to have expressed his desire to do his best to stay in the top flight with his current club Suwon FC.
Lee said, “Seung-woo has entrusted his transfer negotiations to a local agent in Europe. Seung-woo has a lot of affection for Suwon FC. In particular, Suwon FC is in a difficult situation, such as the recent drunk driving case of Ras, so Seung-woo is in a position to do his best for Suwon FC for now.”
With the European transfer window closing in two weeks, Seung-woo is no stranger to the Italian scene, having spent two seasons with Hellas Verona in Italy from July 2017. He also speaks fluent Italian, so communication and adjustment to the league shouldn’t be a problem.
Lee still has more than a year left on his contract with Suwon FC, but the club is willing to cooperate with him if he receives a transfer offer from Europe. 꽁머니사이트
Lee made a successful debut in the K League last year, scoring 14 goals in his debut season.
In his second year, he was heavily scrutinized by opponents, but after recently switching to central midfield, he has been all over the pitch, helping Suwon FC escape the relegation zone.
After scoring his fourth goal of the season against Suwon on May 5, Lee’s YouTube highlight video of the ‘Suwon Derby’ was viewed more than 1.1 million times in just over five days, proving that his star power is still unrivaled in the K League.
Lee’s rise to prominence in Europe is expected to be a major factor in Suwon FC’s late-season relegation battle, as well as the success of the K League.
