Tottenham and Liverpool target Kim Min-jae open to Premier League offers
In what will come as a boost for Tottenham Hotspur, Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae is said to be open to entertaining offers from the Premier League.
This is according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.com, who claim that Liverpool are also strongly interested in the 26-year-old. Recently, Sky Sports claimed that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) were out of the race for Kim but that Manchester United were also linked.
Clearly, many top clubs like what they see with him. He has a 70million Euros release clause, which is a massive number.
The South Korean centre-back, who shares the pitch with Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min at the international level, is part of a Napoli defence on its way to winning the Scudetto in style.
We need Kim
They have 71 points from 28 games and have let in just 20 goals in the league this season. Napoli have a 16-point lead over second-placed Lazio and are comfortably on their way to winning the league.
Such an amazing run will obviously bring the attention of top clubs to their star players. Kim is definitely one of them. He is physically a beast inside the box and while that affects his agility, it makes him a rock-solid wall to get past for opposition attackers.
We can use him in our backline alongside Cristian Romero and Eric Dier, although it is unclear what formation we will play next season as we are yet to find Antonio Conte’s permanent replacement.

Nevertheless, signing a world-class defender is the need of the hour at Spurs. The way we have thrown away leads and fallen behind early in the first half throughout the campaign reflects a disorganised defence. The race for the South Korean will be tough but Spurs have to go the extra mile if they want to compete with their rivals in England and Europe.
