AC Milan chasing former Barcelona youngster

AC Milan technical director Leonardo is already on the move identifying new talents that can be useful for the Rossoneri in the future.

The summer transfer window ended a few days ago but Leonardo is already planing for next season. According to what was reported in Spain by Sport, the Rossoneri club have set their sights on Seung-Woo Lee. The South Korean 20 year old is playing for Hellas Verona since August 2017. Despite Verona’s relegation in Serie B, the former Barcelona talent has decided to remain and show all his values in the lower league.

In his first season in Italy with Hellas Verona, Seung-Woo Lee has made 16 appearances scoring one goal, precisely against AC Milan at San Siro. The young left winger is making a name for himself in the Asian Games. He was decisive with a brace in the 3-1 with which South Korea defeated Vietnam in the semifinals. An excellent performance by the player, who netted the first and third goal for his national team.

Obviously the Rossoneri are not the only team interested in Seung-Woo Lee. In Serie A there is also Atalanta while in Spain Alaves are the most interested club. Hellas Verona value the 20 year old at 5 million euros after having invested 1.5 a year ago. Seung-Woo was also elected the Asian Young Footballer of the Year last season.
