Loads of Everton fans are lauding a transfer link to Kim Min-Jae as Gazzetta dello Sport reported that the Merseyside club are interested in signing him in the summer window.
As per the outlet, Tottenham Hotspur, Lazio and RB Leipzig are also interested in his signature, as PSV have already bid €15 million, which is the equivalent of around £13.5 million, for his services.
Min-Jae has the nickname ‘The Monster’ and was described as the new Van Dijk by the publication, as he shares a similar physique to the Liverpool ace, being 1,90 m tall and weighing 86 kilograms whilst the Dutchman is slightly bigger at 1,93 m.
His build may well be suited to the sheer physicality of the Premier League, and being just 23 years of age as well, the Beijing Sinobo Guoan central defender arguably has a lot of potential.
Would Min-Jae start for Everton?
It may not take much more than what PSV already bid to lure him away from the Chinese Super League too, so perhaps Min-Jae is someone that Carlo Ancelotti should seriously be considering.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful lauded the link to the South Korean international on Twitter:

He looks pretty good but I have to assume that he would need at least a season to adjust to the physicality of the PL. I suppose we’re in a better position now to allow him that time (if we don’t sell any CB) than we will ever be.
