Verified! Chelsea Welcome’s The Beijing Guano Defender Kim Min-Jae
Chelsea could enter the race to sign Beijing Guoan defender, Kim Min-jae, in the January window. Min-jae, 24, has been linked with a move abroad and with his current deal at the Chinese club set to expire in December, the club could cash in on their priced asset should the right offer present itself.
According to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea could swoop for the South-Korean international in January, but would need to fend off interest from bitter rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs could hold a higher hand in the battle to land Min- jae, who’s famously known as ‘The Monster’, owing to his close ties with international teammate and Spurs star, Heung- Min Son.
Min -jae, who bagged a gold- medal for his country at the 2018 Asian Games, has netted three goals in 30 senior appearances for his country. Should Min -jae complete a move to the Premier League this month, it’d be an early blow for new manager, Slaven Bilic, who parted ways with West Brom last month.
