New Everton manager Roberto Martinez is understood to be chasing Bolton Wanderers winger Chung-yong Lee, according to SkySports.

Martinez is looking to implement his own stamp on the team he inherited from David Moyes and the South Korean has been identified as a possible target.

Lee signed for Bolton in 2009 from FC Seoul and had an impressive debut season with the club in which he won awards including Bolton Player of the Year, Players' Player of the Year, and best newcomer.

However, following that Lee broke his leg and was forced to miss the majority of the next season before returning fully for the 2012-13 campaign.

Lee is not known for his goalscoring prowess, with only 11 goals in his 108 appearances for the Wanderers. But the winger works tirelessly for the team and can also beat a player which is an invaluable trait.

Liverpool and Stoke City were rumoured to be keen in the January transfer window but the Premier League duo failed to make a formal bid.

Bolton will find it hard to hold on to the player if a Premier League club does look to acquire his services in the summer.
