Tottenham are confident Son Heung-Min will still be at the club next season, Football Insider understands.
The South Korea icon is one of the club’s two prize assets and there is speculation he could agitate to leave if Harry Kane is successful in engineering his own exit.
A Tottenham source has told Football Insider that club chiefs are “confident” Son, 28, will not leave in the summer transfer window.
He is out of contract in two years and has attracted interest from elite clubs including Bayern Munich.
Tottenham have offered Son a new five-year deal worth more than £200,000-a-week and he was ready to pen terms before Christmas.
The Londoners do not want to cash in on the wide forward and are very hopeful they will not have to following recent talks.
Losing recently-crowned Tottenham player-of-the-year Kane this summer would be a bitter enough blow for supporters.
Were Son to follow him through the exit door, there would be mutiny in the stands.
Son is widely regarded as one of the Premier League’s most dangerous attackers.
He has formed an outstanding partnership with Kane and just completed one of the best campaigns of his career.
The 89-times international has scored 22 goals and provided 17 assists from 51 matches this season.
In 280 Spurs appearances in total, the wide attacker has netted 107 times as well as laid on 64 assists.
