Liverpool Transfer News: Napoli defender Kim Min-jae is mulling a transfer to Liverpool after hearing positive things about the club
Liverpool will look to the forthcoming transfer market to bolster a squad that has struggled this season. Jurgen Klopp would want to add to his squad by acquiring a new center midfielder and a new centre back. The 26-year-old has caught the attention of the German boss.
He thinks Virgil van Dijk and Kim would make a formidable defensive duo. The player is eager to make an effort to get a contract extension. The South Korean international has a €90 million release clause in his contract with Napoli that might lead to an early departure. His current deal runs until the summer of 2025.
Napoli really wants their best player to remain with the club, so they’re negotiating to get him to sign a new deal without a release clause. But that’s up to the player. According to the rumours, the player’s camp is eager to make the transfer to Liverpool. As a consequence, he may sign with Jurgen Klopp’s squad this summer.
But, reaching an agreement with Napoli for his services would be challenging. To sign the 26-year-old, the club must activate his release clause and compete with other major teams from throughout Europe.
