Tottenham star Son wanted by three PL rivals - report
Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min is on the radar of Premier League rivals Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal this summer, according to a report.
Sport1 claim that the South Korea international’s good performances at the World Cup have seen him become a target for these three clubs.
The German broadcaster report that Son himself is ready to take the next step in his career, and is willing to make a change this summer.
It is said that the 25-year-old would cost no less than £61million, with Manchester United the most likely to make a bid.
Football Insider verdict:
What a ridiculous story. There is no way that Tottenham would even consider selling Son this summer, especially to any of these three clubs. They are all extremely close rivals in the top-flight, and Mauricio Pochettino will not want to lose one of his favoured attacking players to anyone, let alone top-four competitors. The only situation in which Tottenham would even think about letting Son go is if an astronomical bid came in, or if they were offered a quality player-plus-cash deal. That in itself is highly unlikely to happen, and this story will no doubt prove to be pure speculation. The claim that Son is ready to move on is another one with little substance, with the South Korean having given no hints that he is unhappy in north London. With the new stadium on the way, and more Champions League football to follow, there is little reason for anyone to leave the club at the moment.
