With the summer transfer window just around the corner, Premier League clubs will be working behind the scenes on potential targets.
According to Teamtalk, Tottenham Hotspur are one of the clubs tracking South Korean defender Kim Min-jae.
The 21-year-old is relatively unproven, but he has caught the eye after being named Young Player of the Year in Korea last year.
Despite his young age, Kim has earned five caps for his country, and now Teamtalk claim that Tottenham, as well as Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in signing him.
If the Belgian does depart, it is highly unlikely that Kim will be recruited as a direct replacement due to his age and inexperience.
Spurs supporters have now got wind of the story, and the majority are confused by the club’s interest.

“Well they’ve already got a Korean player, so what other Korean professional footballers are there in Europe? Perhaps Spurs will be after them. Let’s run with it”
Something like that perhaps?

Another marketing ploy. Who does he play for?

Tottenham have had success in bringing in South Korean talent before, with Son Heung-min having a starring role this season by scoring 19 goals in all competitions.
