The Tottenham dressing room will be devastated if they lose Son Heung-Min this summer.
That is according to ex-Leeds United striker Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively after Football Insider revealed that Bayern Munich are interested in signing the 28-year-old amid his contract stalemate.
The South Korean icon was close to agreeing terms of a long-term contract last November but has failed to sign and that has left his future up in the air.
It comes at a time when Harry Kane has made the ominous claim that he may have to quit Spurs to realise his trophy ambitions.
Whelan believes that Kane’s loss would be felt the most and it would have a dramatic effect on the club’s ability to sign stars.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “It’s going to be an interesting dressing room to walk back into. Imagine. They know deep down that certain players might be leaving and not coming back.
“It’s going to be very difficult to try and tempt other players to come to the club, even with the lovely stadium and great training facilities.
“Harry Kane seems to make everything tick at that football club. When he’s not in the side, you see how much they miss him.
“They are not going to be in Europe so how are they going to convince the best players to come and turn their fortunes around into a title-winning team?
“Off the back of these big-name sales, you might find that more players want to leave.”
Tottenham are currently 6th in the league table, three points outside the top-four with nine games remaining.
This site also revealed on Wednesday that Daniel Levy plans to give Jose Mourinho at least another year to prove himself regardless of the outcome of this season.
