Danny Mills believes that Son Heung-min’s injury will be a “massive” blow for Tottenham Hotspur.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England international suggested that Spurs’ lack of recognised centre-forwards could prove to be a real stumbling block for Jose Mourinho’s side.
The South Korea international has undergone surgery on a fractured arm suffered in the win over Aston Villa, Mourinho admitting he could be out for the rest of the season.

With Harry Kane also missing, Mills is fearful of the impact their absence could have on the team going forward.
“It’s massive, isn’t it? In the grand scheme of things, with Harry Kane out and not going to come back, you think a broken arm shouldn’t be too bad,” he told Football Insider.
“All of a sudden you’re thinking it’s an operation and then obviously it’s clearly a lot more complicated than appears.
“It’s a lack of centre-forwards, simple as that. Lucas Moura is there, granted, but it doesn’t make it any easier for him. You’re having to find fill-ins and auxiliaries basically. I think it’s difficult when you’re looking at a player where it’s not his natural position.”
Son has been a key member of Mourinho’s squad so far this season, making 32 appearances and registering 16 goals and nine assists during that spell.
Spurs are also without star man Kane at the present moment, with the England captain set to be out of action until April with a hamstring issue.
