[이원희 스타뉴스 기자] Tottenham from England want to recruit ‘monster’ Kim Min-jae (27, Napoli). However, he has to overcome fierce competition.

According to British Football Insider’s report on the 20th (Korea time), Tottenham is ready to compete with Manchester United for Kim Min-jae. Kim Min-jae is evaluated as the best defender in Serie A. Beyond that, he is considered one of the best defenders in Europe. It is known that many teams are already targeting Kim Min-jae. Manchester United, Liverpool, Newcastle of England, Real Madrid of Spain, and Paris Saint-Germain of France are representative clubs.

Tottenham also took part in the recruitment competition. The intention is to correct the mistakes of the past day. Tottenham sent a love call to Kim Min-jae from the time he was active in the Chinese league, but he did not make an active move because he was not sure about the recruitment at the time. In the end, Kim Min-jae moved to Fenerbahce, a prestigious Turkish club. Last summer, he wore a Napoli uniform and quickly rose to become a ‘hot star’.

First of all, Tottenham must overcome Manchester United. Meanwhile, Manchester United have been keen to sign a new centre-back. It has world class Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Baran, but it seems that it does not give trust except for these two. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are said to be leaving the team this summer. I have been related to Kim Min-jae for a long time.

Previously, British media reported that Manchester United would prepare a transfer fee of 143 million pounds (about 229 billion won) to sign Kim Min-jae and Napoli striker Victor Osimen at the same time.

However, Tottenham also need reinforcements at centre-back. Eric Dyer and Ben Davis are criticized for their consistent experiences. It is not known whether loanee Clement Lenglet will join Tottenham in full. The only player to trust is Cristian Romero. If Kim Min-jae comes, it is a great strength. In addition, Tottenham have Korean striker Son Heung-min playing, so there is a possibility that he will play a role as a bridge.

Football Insider said, “Tottenham are ready to rival Manchester United to sign Napoli star Kim Min-jae.”

Kim Min-jae played in 26 league games this season showing solid defense in every game. Thanks to this, Napoli have the chance to rise to the top of the league for the first time in 33 years since 1990. He also played a big part in the European Champions League, leading Napoli to progress to the quarter-finals for the first time in history the club.
