Wigan offers deal to Ulsan Tiger's Lee Chun-soo

South Korean forward Lee Chun-soo has reportedly received an offer from English Premier League club Wigan Athletic, boosting hopes of Asian football fans to see another Korean in the world's richest football competition. His club Ulsan Tigers told The Korea Times the 25-year-old forward will leave for England early this week to begin negotiations. Lee, the 2005 K-League MVP, has been looking for a move in his second bid to play in Europe. He played 18 months in Spain with Real Sociedad and Numancia before making his K-League comeback in 2005.
