The Hornets are looking forward to acquiring the South Korean defender from Beijing Guoan. The team is keen to get him for the foreseeable future, but certain Asian Champions League rules might be a roadblock in their chances.
Watford remains interested in acquiring the defender and currently maintains a dialogue with the Chinese Super League club in talks of a possible move for Kim Min Jae to the team. There are a few concerns regarding the matter before it could push through.
The Premier League has released a certain timetable regarding the January transfer window, which would be the time for the Hornets to make their move.
Clubs are allowed to sign and sell players starting Wednesday, January 1st until one hour before the midnight of January 31st. Players signed on the first two days of the said window will not be available for selection on match week 21, which is scheduled between January 3 and January 5.
Watford has four days left to get talks in motion and strike a deal with the Chinese Super League to acquire Kim. He will be a great addition to the team and will surely bolster the Hornets’ defense and will surely flourish with the team.
There is still no assurance that the Hornets will get Kim to Vicarage Road this January. In the meantime, the team can consider other options and search for other prospects that could be a valuable addition to the team.
The team has been nothing short of impressive since Watford boss Nigel Pearson came to the team. They finished 2019 with a bang and has also started well this year. They found themselves a new identity that is shaping the players’ pace in games.
Now the team will have to face Everton, Brighton, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Crystal Palace in its next five matches. This will be a tougher challenge that the team will have to face with their newfound confidence that will be very vital in these matches.
Adding Kim to the current lineup does not seem to be a priority. Rumors of adding the Korean star has been ringing the news even before Pearson came to the team and changed everything for the team.
The team is hoping that they could finish the remainder of the season with a bang. The team’s comeback could probably end up as one of the most inspiring stories of the season. There will be a lot to look forward to if they finish the season with the same pace and acquire Kim at the same time.
