Beijing Guoan and South Korean international defender Kim Min-Jae has been attracting interest from Europe once again, and this time a number of Premier League clubs are reportedly ready to enter the race for his signature.
According to this report from the Guardian, Everton is now amongst the clubs interested in signing the 23-year-old central defender, joining a growing pack of clubs interested in completing this transfer.
PSV Eindhoven and Southampton have also been linked with a move to sign Kim Min-Jae, due to their connection with his current club Beijing Guoan, as outlined in this tweet by Steve Han:
PSV and Southampton are two of many clubs that have expressed an interest in Kim Min-jae. Interestingly enough, PSV are led by Roger Schmidt who signed Kim at Beijing Guoan, whilst Southampton assistant Richard Kitzbichler was a part of Schmidt’s backroom staff at Beijing.

While there was a previous round of rumors linking Kim Min-Jae with a move to Europe in December, which failed to materialize at the time, it seems like a potential transfer is now is more likely.
Beijing Guoan are reportedly prepared to sell the defender and have valued him at £13.5m, which supposedly makes him a very attractive prospect for European clubs.
