The value of ‘Iron Pillar’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) is soaring. Following Manchester United, Tottenham is also expected to join the fight for Kim Min-jae in earnest. 스포츠토토
Transfer market expert Rudy Galetti reported on the 25th (hereinafter Korean time) in an interview with British media ‘Give Misport (GMS) that Tottenham caught Napoli’s Min-jae Kim and Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni on their radar.” He added, “Tottenham are looking for a new centre-back and are focusing on Italian Serie A player Kim Min-jae.”
It is nothing new that Tottenham want to sign Kim Min-jae. However, the courtship towards Kim Min-jae is getting stronger. Recently, as Milan Schkriniar (28, Inter Milan), one of the ‘hot’ central defenders in the world, agreed to transfer to France’s Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Tottenham’s options were reduced. Galetti emphasized, “Tottenham are looking for some players in Italy to bolster their defense. Right now, their attention is focused on Kim Min-jae and Bastoni.”
Galletti predicted that it would be difficult to recruit in the January transfer window. Galletti said, “It seems very unlikely that Tottenham will sign Kim Min-jae and Bastoni in this transfer window. Napoli are currently leading the race to win Serie A. It is imaginable to transfer key players like Kim Min-jae in the middle of the season. It’s difficult to do,” he explained.
Also, “According to WhoScored.com, Min-jae Kim is recording 1.8 tackles per game this season in the league tackle category, which is the second highest in Napoli. Four of them are Napoli players. Kim Min-jae is not something Napoli wants to lose.”
“Kim Min-jae and Bastoni are rated at 35 million euros and 55 million euros, respectively, in the transfer market. However, moving to Tottenham this month is unlikely to be easy. We’ll have to look for it.”
