The Lowdown: Spurs’ British business
The Lilywhites have a good track record record of buying and selling players to and from a variety of clubs within England.
In terms of their recent recruits, figures such as Richarlison, Yves Bissouma and Fraser Forster have all joined Spurs from sides in the Premier League, while in the past they’ve banked huge profits from selling the likes of Kyle Walker and Dimitar Berbatov.
Looking ahead to the next summer transfer window, reports in Europe have claimed Son is open to leaving N17, and one pundit believes he could make a move to one of their top-flight rivals.
The Latest: A shock move for Son?
Speaking to Football Insider, former West Ham man Frank McAvennie had this to say when asked if Son could leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the summer.
“I heard that Liverpool are in for him and I think he would go.
“He is not going to win anything at Tottenham. You are going to be challenging to get into the Champions League but I cannot see them winning it, not with that team.
“He would be an absolute star at Liverpool, the way they play. I think he would love to go. I think he would want to stay in the Premier League, he loves it. Liverpool would be great for him.”
The Verdict: A nightmare for Spurs
Having made 344 appearances for the Lilywhites, the 30-year-old has scored 136 goals and delivered 76 assists (prior to Marseille).
Focusing on his current league campaign, no other Spurs player has made more shot-creating actions than the £190k-per-week South Korean (52), which highlights how much of a key attacking figure he is for the club.
Do you think Son would leave Spurs next summer?
His overall performances have earned the attacker a solid season rating of 7.1/10 from WhoScored, making him the fourth-highest rated player at the north London club.
Previously described as being “unplayable” by Alan Shearer, Son’s potential exit would surely be a massive blow for Tottenham given the talent he has, especially if he does end up joining a Premier League rival such as Liverpool.
