PSG drop out of the race for Tottenham Hotspur target Kim Min-jae
The South Korean has been linked with a move to Tottenham in recent times. The club can breathe a sigh of relief as Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly dropped out of the race to sign their target.
The South Korean centre-back has been a hot prospect in the transfer market this season, and many top clubs across Europe have been keeping an eye on him. His performances for Napoli have not gone under the radar.

Tottenham have been in the market for a new centre-back, and Kim Min-jae fits the bill perfectly. The 24-year-old has been a consistent performer for Napoli in Serie A, and his physicality and aerial prowess make him a perfect fit for the Premier League.
His ability to play out from the back and his leadership skills also make him an attractive prospect for any top club. The fact that PSG are not interested in Kim Min-jae could be seen as a positive sign for Tottenham.
The French giants are one of the biggest clubs in Europe and can often outmuscle their competitors when it comes to transfers. If they had shown an interest in the defender, Tottenham could have found it tough to compete.
Kim Min-jae could be a crucial signing for Tottenham, who have been struggling defensively this season. Cristian Romero is a world-class centre-back but apart from him, the other options hardly convince.
The Premier League is a tough and physical league, and having a player like Kim Min-jae in the squad would be a massive boost for Tottenham. His aerial prowess would make him a nightmare for opposition attackers, and his physicality would help the team win the battles in the box.
