Aston Villa, which is targeting Lee Kang-in, is also eyeing Kaoru Mitoma.
England’s ‘The Boot Room’ said on the 20th (Korean time), “Villa is keeping an eye on Arsenal target Mitoma. Coach Unai Emery is a big fan of Mitoma. He plans to fight Arsenal this summer to bring back Brighton star Mitoma. “Mitoma is seen as a potential replacement for Felipe Coutinho. Mitoma is one of the most exciting talents at Brighton.”
Villa has changed noticeably since Emery arrived. They hovered around the relegation zone under Steven Gerrard. After Gerrard was sacked, Emery, who led Villarreal, came. Emery came to Arsenal as Arsene Wenger’s successor, but he failed miserably and went to Villarreal. Unlike Arsenal, he had good results at Villarreal and continued a good atmosphere at Villa.
Villa is currently 6th in the English Premier League (EPL). Emery Magic is in the right situation. Villa, which is above Liverpool and Chelsea, is aiming to advance to competitions organized by the European Football Federation (UEFA). Even if they do not advance to the UEFA competitions, Villa is planning to develop one step further through steady reinforcement in the summer. Along with Samuel Chuqueze and Matteo Guendouzi, they are also aiming for Lee Kang-in, but Mitoma is also included in the wish list. 먹튀검증
Mitoma did not have high expectations even before the season. He proved his potential at Kawasaki Frontale and played an active part at Royal Winyon, but it was still a question whether he would work in the EPL. He showed his presence as a substitute. His tremendous speed and dribbling skills ensured his late joker role. He gradually consolidated his starting position and became a key player after manager Graham Porter left and manager Roberto De Gervi came.
With overwhelming speed, opportunity creation, and decisiveness, attention has increased. He emerged as the Brighton ace and became a striker watched by big clubs. He surpassed Shinji Kagawa and Shinji Okazaki for the most points scored in a single season by a Japanese Premier League player. He is well-received enough to be nominated for the EPL Team of the Year. As he received attention from big clubs, his stock price rose further.
Villa is also aiming. If you recruit along with Lee Kang-in, who is scheduled to pay a buyout of 18 million euros (approximately 26.2 billion won), the Korean-Japanese offensive line is expected.
