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