Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with Fenerbahce defender Kim Min-jae and will now reportedly scout him out against Galatasaray this weekend.
In the summer of 2020, Tottenham were heavily linked with the signing of Kim from Chinese club Beijing Guoan.
For example, The Mirror suggested that Son Heung-min was vital to Kim and’s signing hopes Reports in South Korea suggested a deal was expected.
No deal materialized as Tottenham signed Joe Rodon instead but rumors have not died down.
Kim joined Fenerbahce in August 2021 and just months later in Turkey, Fotospor hinted that Fabio Paratici wanted to bring the defender to Tottenham.
Here we are again with more reports from Turkey claiming Tottenham are interested.
This time, fanatic claim that Tottenham will send scouts to watch Kim this weekend.
Fenerbahce meet bitter rivals Galatasaray this weekend and it is seen as an ideal opportunity to see the South Korean star in action.
CNN Turk reported last month that Tottenham and Newcastle United have started talks over a summer deal for Kim.
Tottenham’s scouting Kim this weekend only adds to the belief they want to sign him and seeing him in a high-pressure game will be important.
Kim, 25, has been compared to Virgil van Dijk in the past and continues to be linked with a big move to the Premier League.
However, this feels like another Leandro Damiao for Tottenham – a rumored signing that just never materializes.
Kim seems to be so regularly linked with Tottenham, much like Damiao was then, and yet it never feels like a move is actually close.
Kim, who shines in Turkey, is at least a step further than in China, which should impress Tottenham.
However, if we had to guess, we’d guess that a move to Newcastle this summer actually looks slightly more likely than Tottenham.
