According to SIC Noticias (as relayed by Korea Joongang Daily), Kim Min-Jae, who was previously rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, is set to complete a move to Juventus. 

Tottenham are expected to prioritise strengthening in central defence during this summer’s transfer window, with the likes of Joachim Andersen, Lewis Dunk, Nikola Milenkovic and Milan Skriniar rumoured to be on the club’s radar (Sky Sports).  

While Spurs have not been linked with a move for Kim over recent weeks, the South Korean international was rumoured to be on the North London club’s radar over the last two windows.

Multiple sources (SPOTV News and 90 min) revealed last summer that Tottenham were interested in the Beijing Guoan defender.

Football.London’s Alasdair Gold then revealed during the January transfer window that the centre-back, who is nicknamed the monster, was still of interest to Spurs. 

However, according to SIC Noticias, Kim now looks set to complete a move to Juventus after agreeing on a contract with the Italian giants. 

The report adds that the Old Lady could sign the 24-year-old and loan him out to Sassuolo until January.
