Tottenham could be without Son Heung-min for Premier League openers

Tottenham could be without Son Heung-min for Premier League openers

Tottenham Hotspur have not been active in the transfer window this summer, however, they could be forced to dive into the market soon.

Spurs have not yet splashed out on any new recruits just yet, nor have they let anybody leave White Hart Lane either, although Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been linked with a few attractive players.

Tottenham will want to be challenging for silverware next season as they head into their new home and the Argentine will know he needs to bring in the additions to ensure his squad can remain competitive over the duration of a long campaign.

Pochettino will also want to avoid as many blows as possible, however, he has already received a huge one before the Premier League season starts.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Son Heung-min could miss the first four games due to his involvement in the Asian Games with South Korea.

The striker has been called up by his nation as one of their over-aged players and is unlikely to be available until the beginning of September.

The Verdict:

Tottenham could face the likes of Newcastle United, Fulham, Manchester United and Watford before the South Korean returns to north London.

Pochettino will be hoping that he has someone brought in that covers the star for his absence, and will also be hoping that he does not suffer a further setback with the possibility of Son heading home with an injury. Spurs’ attack is over-reliant on Harry Kane at the best of times, so being without Son can’t be good news. Perhaps, like Kyle Walker-Peters last term, a youngster will be given a chance for the opening game at St. James’ Park.
