Tottenham lost more points from a winning position on Wednesday night as they drew 1-1 at home against Fulham.
Harry Kane gave Spurs a first half lead with his 11th Premier League goal of the campaign but Ivan Cavaleiro equalised for the Cottagers 16 minutes from time.
That leaves Jose Mourinho’s side in sixth, six points behind leaders Manchester United but only three behind second placed Liverpool.
Despite having conceded just 14 goals in their 17 league matches, the North London side could reportedly make a move to sign a centre-back.
According to the Mirror, Spurs are eyeing up a swoop for Beijing Guoan’s Kim Min-jae.
It’s claimed that Tottenham have been interested in the South Korea international, whose contract expires in December 2021, since the summer and that they are now prepared to move following interest from Chelsea.
Min-jae is 24 years old but has only so far played his club football in Asia with his current club, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Gyeongju Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power FC.
Moving to London would present the 6ft 3in Korean with a fantastic opportunity to progress his career and link-up with international teammate Son Heung-min.
