Tottenham are favourites to sign South Korean international Kim Min-jae

According to a report from Sunday Mirror (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are now the favourites to sign South Korean international Kim Min-jae, thanks to the presence of Son Heung-min at the club.

The 23-year-old Kim has played majority of his football in South Korea. In January 2019, the centre-back moved to Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan and has made 34 appearances for the club till date. The centre-back has thirty caps for the South Korean national team.

However, Tottenham have jumped ahead of the queue to land the 23-year-old this summer. This is mainly due to the presence of South Korea captain Son Heung-min at the club. The 27-year-old has shared the dressing room with Kim for the national team and his influence could help us land the defender. (h/t Football.london)

Given the number of clubs vying for his signature, the 23-year-old seems to be packed with potential. With Tottenham in need of urgent reinforcements at the heart of the defence, signing Kim would be a good option for the club. More so, considering the fact that Beijing Guoan are willing to sell him for just £13.5m.

A young and upcoming defender, with an affordable price-tag, signing Kim would make a lot of sense for Tottenham. But the competition seems to be intense for his signing. However, in Son we have the ace up our sleeves. Let’s see if we are able to land the 23-year-old centre-back this summer.
