Report: Heung-Min Son tells Paratici to go and sign 23-year-old 'monster' for Tottenham
Heung-Min Son has told Tottenham Hotspur to sign Kim Min-Jae, 90 Minutes report.
Son knows Min-Jae well as they have played together for South Korea and it appears that the forward feels his compatriot could be a great signing for Tottenham.
As a result he has apparently told Fabio Paratici to sign Min-Jae during discussions with Spurs’ new sporting director.
Min-Jae actually is known to Tottenham – as he has been linked with them in the past.
It was claimed last year by SPOTV TV in South Korea that Min-Jae was waiting for Tottenham to make an offer for him, but in the end no transfer was done.
Big step up
The powerful central defender, who has the nickname ‘Monster’ (Wikipedia), currently plays for Beijing Guoan, meaning he has little reputation.
But with Spurs on the chase for a central defender it seems that Son feels Min-Jae has the quality to step up.
He is known for being excellent in the air, and is regarded as one of the finest players in China currently.
However, he would be making a big step up if he was to join Spurs.
And it remains to be seen whether he would actually be an upgrade on the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier.
