Heung-Min Son could leave Tottenham this summer

By Joe Nelson

Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg are keen on bringing Tottenham winger Heung-Min Son back to Germany, according to a report.

Sky Sports Germany claim that the out-of-favour South Korean winger has caught the eye of the Bundesliga club.

The Evening Standard report that the dynamic winger would cost around the £17m mark, which would mean a substantial loss on the £25million Spurs paid for him.

The 24-year-old only joined Spurs from Bayer Leverusen last summer on a five-year deal, but has failed to live up to expectations at White Hart Lane.

Son played 41 times in all competitions for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, scoring eight goals with five assists. Many of these appearances were made off the bench as he slipped in the pecking order behind the likes of Christian Eriksen, Deli Alli and Erik Lamela.

The attack-minded midfielder was with Spurs for the first month of pre-season, before jetting out to Rio to represent his country in the Olympics.

The South Korean team had been hoping for another medal after scoring bronze at the London Olympics, but were knocked out by Honduras in the quarter-finals.

Heung-Min Son was said to be distraught after the defeat, with coach Shin Taeyong confirming on the Korea Football Association website that he “cried all day” after the Honduras match. Pochettino admitted the player was still ‘sad’ when he joined back up with his team-mates.
