‘Vando Dyke’ Min-jae Kim, Liverpool eyeing Van Dyke replacement

 Liverpool is keeping an eye on the dynamics of Kim Min-jae (26, Naples).

On the 6th (Korean time), several media outlets, including the British media ‘Express’, said, “The injury of Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is more serious than expected. Liverpool have made plans to sign the defender through the winter transfer window. Kim Min-jae is also one of the recruiting candidates.”

Van Dijk recently went down with an injury against Brentford. Eventually, at halftime, he was replaced by Joel Matip and entered the locker room. Liverpool lost this match 1-3. It is the first time in 83 years that Liverpool have lost to Brentford in the English top division. 토토사이트

Liverpool has already directly checked Kim Min-jae’s defensive power. Liverpool and Napoli faced each other twice in the 2022-23 season UEFA Champions League group stage. Kim Min-jae lightly blocked Liverpool strikers Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez. In 2 matches, Napoli won 1 and drew 1.

Kim Min-jae’s nickname is ‘Bando Dyke’. It is a nickname created by combining the Korean Peninsula with the name Van Dyke. When rumors of Kim Min-jae’s transfer to the European big leagues arose, British media introduced Kim Min-jae as a ‘Korean Van Dyke’.

There are several English Premier League (EPL) teams that want Kim Min-jae. Manchester United is also known to have recently set up a plan to recruit Kim Min-jae.

On the other hand, Kim Min-jae said that he had no intention of transferring for the time being. When Kim Min-jae returned to Korea after the 2022 Qatar World Cup, took a break, and returned to Italy, “It has only been half a year since I moved to Naples. He said, “It’s burdensome that the transfer story comes out,” and left.
