Arsenal are also hoping to sign Kim Min-jae (Napoli).
In his first season with Napoli, Kim made a splendid impact, winning a starting spot. His performances helped Napoli win their first league title in 33 years. Naturally, the interest from big clubs for Kim has increased and he is expected to leave Napoli in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The most active club is Manchester United. The Red Devils have been monitoring Kim since the end of last year and are reportedly ready to make a move. United manager Eric ten Hagh is preparing to overhaul his defence and has identified Kim as a key figure.메이저사이트
While United have been strongly linked with the player, there is still interest from other clubs. Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), and others have also been tracking Kim.
Arsenal have also joined the fray. “Arsenal are looking for a central defender to replace Rob Holding, and Kim Min-jae has emerged as a potential candidate,” The Boot Room reported on the 26th (KST).
The Gunners have been top of the league since the start of the season and were expected to win their first Premier League title in 20 years. However, the departure of defensive stalwart William Saliba at the end of the season left a hole. Holding struggled, but Saliba’s absence was felt and the Gunners eventually lost the league title to Man City.
In response, the Gunners plan to strengthen their defence with the signing of Kim Min-jae. “Arsenal failed to lift the trophy despite their good form,” the outlet said. Arsenal are looking to strengthen their squad and want Kim Min-jae to play a central role in the defence.”
Arsenal have a North London rivalry with Tottenham, where Son Heung-min plays. The possibility of a new Korean derby has emerged in the North London derby.
