Tottenham may struggle to attract and retain players in the summer if they lose Son Heung-Min.
That is according to ex-Premier League forward Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively after Football Insider revealed that Bayern Munich are interested in signing the 28-year-old amid his contract stalemate.
That news came after Harry Kane revealed that he would consider his Tottenham future after the European Championship in the summer.
On-loan Gareth Bale meanwhile confirmed that he would be heading back to Real Madrid at the end of the season.
Whelan believes that Kane’s loss will be felt most, claiming that Tottenham may struggle in the transfer market as a result.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “It’s going to be an interesting dressing room to walk back into. 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.
