The Lowdown: Son on the verge of Spurs deal…
Tottenham have been trying to tie down superstar attacker Son with a new deal since the start of 2020/2021.
Indeed, reports as far back as October last year claimed that the Lilywhites offered a mammoth new deal worth around £60 million in total (Football Insider).
Spurs were said to be nearing his extended stay but reliable news then emerged over Tottenham stalling his contract talks – mainly due to the financial toll of coronavirus.
The Latest: Spurs ‘confident’ of new contract
Now, Robinson has reacted to a claim by journalist Fabrizio Romano, who believes that Spurs board are now ‘confident’ an agreement can be completed soon.
The reporter says Spurs are still in talks with the South Korea star but those within the club believe a deal will be agreed once the manager situation is resolved.
Robinson now believes this development comes as ‘massive for Tottenham’.
“We talk about the managerial appointment being appointment well Son staying is almost as important,” he explained to FI.
“If Harry Kane leaves, you start to wonder what other players might want to leave. If the likes of Son and Lloris started making noises about wanting to leave on the back of Harry Kane moving to say Manchester City then it would be a huge problem for Spurs.
“To hear Son is near to signing a new deal is massive for Tottenham. It is the best news that has come out of the club in the last six months.”
The Verdict: Robinson bang on the money…
Amid the noise surrounding star striker Harry Kane and his future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs fans will indeed be relieved to hear the club are confident of tying down Son.
The 28-year-old has just come off a brilliant campaign in which he scored a brilliant 17 goals and added 10 assists in 36 Premier League starts (WhoScored).
Indeed, only Kane had a better season than Son by the numbers, and if the Englishman does leave north London then Spurs will need all the strength in depth they can muster, starting with their South Korean superstar.
