In a recent article for Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold discussed Spurs’ interest in central defender, Kim Min-jae.
In his piece, Gold claimed that, while the 6ft 2″ Kim is a player Tottenham ‘have looked at in the past year’, he does not expect Jose Mourinho’s side to make a move for the £1.8 million-rated, 24-year-old during the remainder of the January transfer window.
Indeed, it was reported that Spurs were interested in the Beijing Sinobo Guoan defender over the summer window, with 90min claiming that the north London side had a bid rejected for Kim, with a move by Tottenham thought to be encouraged by the centre-back’s international teammate, Heung-min Son.
However, despite The Guardian reporting that Spurs could once again be interested in a move for the South Korean this month, if Gold is to be believed, Tottenham fans should not expect the arrival of Kim anytime soon.
Would Kim Min-jae be a good signing?
Transfer Tavern Take
Despite the fact that Tottenham have the third-best defensive record in the Premier League so far this season, after keeping just one clean sheet over their last seven league fixtures, the club’s defending is said to have ‘frustrated‘ Mourinho.
However, with the winter window closing on February 1st, if the 57-year-old wishes to add defensive reinforcements to his squad then he best act quickly, be it for Kim Min-jae or any other target he may have.
