Report: Liverpool want 23-year-old, 2 bids from Tottenham Hotspur rejected
Liverpool are interested in Kim Min-jae, but Tottenham Hotspur are confident of signing the central defender in the summer transfer window, according to 90min.
It has been reported that Beijing Sinobo Guoan want £15 million as transfer fee for Kim, but Tottenham are yet to make an offer more than £10 million.
The report has added that two bids from Spurs have already been rejected, but the North London outfit are confident that with talks still going, a deal will be struck in the summer transfer window.
Kim is a very good and promising young central defender who will be an asset for Tottenham or Liverpool.
Spurs actually need the South Korea international more than the Reds do, as Jan Vertonghen looks set to leave at the end of the season, and head coach Jose Mourinho will need a replacement.
However, a move to Liverpool will be more tempting for the 23-year-old, as the Reds have just won the Premier League and are going places, while Spurs may not even finish in the Europa League spots.

Curtis Jones, Vitezslav Jaros, Adam Lewis, Jake Cain, Abdi Sharif, Luis Longstaff, Joe Hardy and Liam Coyle have all extended their deals, while Harvey Elliott, James Norris, Owen Beck, Ben Winterbottom, Remi Savage and Fidel O’Rourke agreed professional terms.
