Jewell chasing Korean, waiting on Bouba deal

Wigan boss Paul Jewell is chasing South Korea star Lee Chun-soo.

The former Asian Young Footballer of the Year has emerged as a target as Jewell desperately attempts to strengthen his squad.

The 25-year-old striker, who currently plays for Ulsan Tigers in Korea's K-League, is apparently eager to return to Europe.

Following his performances for South Korea in the 2002 World Cup finals, Lee joined Real Sociedad in 2003, becoming the first Korean to play in the Primera Liga.

But he failed to recapture the form which helped his country reach the semi-finals and moved on to Numancia.

Another poor season followed, resulting in his return to Ulsan in the middle of the K-League season in 2005.

But Lee proved such an inspiration in helping the team clinch the title, he was named the league's Most Valuable Player at the end of that year.

Wigan have recently watched Lee, who scored South Korea's opening goal of last year's World Cup finals in a 2-1 win over Togo.

However, while it is understood a deal is close, it is apparently a complicated one due to the red tape involved.

The struggling Latics, just two points above the relegation zone, are still in the hunt for Fulham midfielder Papa Bouba Diop.

Jewell had been hoping to complete the transfer yesterday after a fee had been agreed with the Cottagers.

Reports Diop has turned down the move have been denied, with talks still seemingly ongoing.

Wigan have also been linked with a move for West Ham striker Marlon Harewood.

It is believed that while the Hammers are not averse to letting Harewood go, they are apparently not keen on selling the 27-year-old to one of their relegation rivals.
