Speaking to Football Insider, former Tottenham midfielder Michael Brown has tipped other clubs to be ‘sniffing around’ Spurs star Son Heung-min as the club continue talks over new deals for their top players.
Son, who looks set to remain at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following recent reports over a fresh contract, is also being tipped to potentially attract January interest if the club cannot tie him down.
Son Heung-min attracting interest
As well as the ‘unplayable’ South Korean winger, Spurs wish to secure a new deal for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, with the Frenchman’s future being made a priority once Tottenham manage to tie down Son (The Athletic).
Speaking to Football Insider, Brown has tipped clubs to be ‘sniffing around’ Son ‘without question’, claiming there are teams ‘very much aware’ and keeping tabs on the 28-year-old as the January transfer window looms in just over two months’ time.
“If he’s getting a new contract, no question, he’s unplayable at times,” explained the ex-Spurs midfielder.
“He’s being provided with something different and I can’t speak highly enough of him.
“There are teams very much aware of Son, that’s for sure. All the Spurs players attract attention and it’s no different with Son.”
Transfer Tavern take
Lauded as a ‘very underrated‘ Premier League star, securing Son on a new deal should be made one of Tottenham’s top priorities, especially if clubs do indeed a January swoop.
Forming an excellent partnership with Harry Kane, the South Korea maestro could be crucial to Jose Mourinho’s challenge for silverware.
