Video: Lee Chung-Yong 이청용 Is Bolton's Transfer Target

Lee Chung-Yong 이청용, Korea's brightest soccer prospect, is contemplating a Bolton Wanderers move.

His football pedigree is clear for all to see. In January of 2009, Lee was named as one of the top 50 rising stars in football by the British daily, The Times. -Wiki

Currently plying his trades with FC Seoul, who currently top the Korean K-League, Lee Chung-Yong is compared to Alexander Hleb by many in Korea. Blessed with excellent technical ability, Lee is capable of delivering a pass virtually anywhere on the field and is quite capable of pressing the action himself.

“We got an offer from Bolton about Lee’s transfer. However, it is not a good moment to talk about it,” an FC Seoul spokesperson said.

Negotiations between the two clubs are believed to be at an advanced stage and the deal is likely to be sealed within 48 hours.
