Chelsea are battling London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for the signature of 24 year old Beijing Guoan defender Kim Min-jae.

According to Daily, here is why the Blues are keen on signing the South Korean defender:

1. The South Korean international has both a robust fitness and the physical stamina to remain dominant throughout a match.

2. His 6ft 4in height gives him an advantage in both attacking and defensive situations. The South Korean utilises his height advantage perfectly and is unplayable in the air.

3. Despite his height, the 24 year old is quick off the mark and rarely loses out to a striker when it comes to getting first to a loose ball, with his tall stature then allowing him to easily shield possession and wait for reinforcements, or play it out from the back.

4. He is calm and composed even when other pressure from opposition players. He isn’t called ‘Mr Composure’ for nothing.
