According to an update by reliable Football.London correspondent Alasdair Gold, Tottenham are maintaining an interest in Beijing Guoan defender Kim Min-jae as Jose Mourinho looks to bring in another centre-half, with the Spurs boss now having to decide whether he can be thrust straight into the team or treated as a future project.
Min-jae, who was recently touted with a move to Lazio after his Chinese Super League club accepted the Serie A team’s bid, is now being linked with Spurs again as the Londoners maintain their interest – and a report from South Korean outlet SPOTV News recently revealed that the towering colossus wants to join Tottenham.
Should Tottenham sign Kim Min-jae next?
No, bigger fish to fry
Indeed, after Lazio reportedly came to an agreement over his transfer fee, SPOTV later claimed that the player himself was still hesitant over a switch to the Stadio Olimpico.
The same report claimed that Min-jae is holding out for a move to Spurs, with chairman Daniel Levy apparently maintaining an interest according to Gold, but Mourinho also needs to figure out what kind of role he will play upon signing for the club if a transfer goes through.
As Eric Dier continues to look shaky rather than dominant, fellow centre-back Davinson Sanchez also ‘struggled’ against Lokomotiv Plovdiv but eventually managed to grow into the game (as per Football.London).
Meanwhile, Toby Alderweireld has failed to start the last two matches, with Gold highlighting these points and revealing that Min-jae could be a possible solution.
