Expert: Heung-Min Son planning to 'flog NFTs' to Tottenham fans after social media development
Son Heung-Min has opened a Twitter account in a bid to sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to Tottenham fans.
That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.
On 3 May, Son started an official Twitter account, sharing a welcome message to his fans.
On 17 March, the attacker revealed on Instagram his first “NFT drop” was coming soon.
Several footballers and even football clubs have embraced NFTs in recent months, with Liverpool selling their official NFTs as “digital collectables”.
Wenham claims Son’s new Twitter account has been set up to help him sell his own NFTs to fans.

“There are two points on this,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“Firstly, I’m sure the club have been trying to get him to join Twitter since the day he joined Tottenham.
“I actually have a different view on it. I think he has joined up so he can flog some of these NFTs.
“We all think of Sonny as this friendly guy, which he is, but there seems to be some kind of marketing team behind this, looking out for his own personal gain.
“Tottenham are going on tour to South Korea this summer so I guess this will help with exposure.
“I just know that he said on Instagram he would be selling NFTs and the next day he is starting a Twitter account.
“I think he will use that account to try and sell them.”
Son has scored 20 goals in 32 Premier League games this season.
Spurs remain fifth in the league.
