Tottenham are confident they will sign South Korean centre-back Kim Min-Jae, according to 90Min.

Last month, we relayed a Telegraph story that claimed Spurs were keeping tabs on Kim, who has played 30 times for his country alongside Son Heung-min.

Kim currently plays for Chinese Super League side Beijing Sinobo Guoan, but 90Min believes the 23-year-old could soon be on his way to Tottenham.

The report says Spurs have already seen two offers – both said to be below £10 million – rejected, with Kim’s present employers holding out for closer to £15 million.

90Min goes on to suggest that – while confident of striking a deal – Tottenham face competition from the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Everton, Inter Milan, RB Leipzig, Porto and Monaco for Kim’s signature.

Spurs are in need of a new centre-back with Jan Vertonghen’s contract set to expire at the end of the season. This weekend’s meeting with Crystal Palace could be the Belgian’s final game for the Londoners.

Whether Kim is good enough for a top Premier League team remains to be seen, but it certainly looks like he is attracting plenty of interest from across Europe.



  1. Jose needs to work with and develop Foyth and Sess and try and make them into the full backs we all hope they can be. if Kim is £15M, then lets get him in, big, strong quick and if he has Son`s work ethic, he will be great for us. Vorm, Jan, Wanyama, Aurier and Lamela, should all be moved on. NDombele cant be left on the bench, if Jose doesn’t want him, then sell him and get Milosovic Savic, Hjoberg, would give us the help the CB`s need. Getting Willian on a free would give us a high quality front three. We don`t need to go crazy we will be competitive if we make these changes.

    First XI next season – 4-1-2-3-1 Lloris, Foyth, Sess, Dier, Kim, Hjoberg, NDombele (or Milosovic-Savic) Lo Celso, William, Son, Kane

  2. Raymond, can i suggest you watch some tottenham games on television.
    Davies has been a very consitant club and Welsh international player and has been solid in both aspects of the game .
    It is not difficult to see, most crosses etc come from the other side !.
    Most managers tell fullbacks to tuck in more than i prefer, but he is a good solid performer,
    All will struggle against Traore etc, but you picked the wrong guy to critisize .
