Several reports linking Tottenham Hotspur with a move for South Korean defender Kim Min-jae this week and it’s left supporters discussing the potential of a move on social media.
According to the Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, Spurs are monitoring the 23-year-old as his holds talks with Beijing Guoan over an exit from the club in the summer.
This has also been reported by Titan Sports, via Xinhuanet, over in China.
Would you like to see Kim Min-jae at Spurs?
It is further claimed that Jose Mourinho is leading the £13.5m chase to land the 6 foot 3 colossus but faces competition from the likes of Everton, Lazio and a few unnamed Bundesliga clubs.
Some members of the Spurs faithful appear to be all for it, claiming that he’s better than any other centre-back at the club whilst others have their doubts, hinting towards it being a business decision from Daniel Levy rather than a footballing one.
Here’s the word from the fanbase…
Yes please. Big, physical, towering defender with tons of pace for his size. Better with the ball at his feet than any of our current CBs. Loves to carry it out from the back. Can ping it. Wins tons of headers. Big threat on set pieces. Seems to tick all the boxes. Bring him in!

Nah, I doubt Jose wants him. This reeks of levy signing. He wants to secure the Asian market.

Think of the shirt sales in South Korea, Levy is rubbing his hands!

Kind of looks like a Korean Harry Maguire on the pitch, similar playing style and stature. Does look like he has a habit of diving in though, which can be a problem.

Imagine if he’s a baller. We already seen the Son fever at TH. This would amplify it. Korean fever would rake in $$$.

Please be true. He looks like a beast pairing with Sanchez.
