According to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur and Son Heung-min are in advanced talks to agree a new mega deal worth a reported £200,000-per-week – coming after reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed the talks were set to go ahead last week (The Guardian).
Son, who has been revelation for Spurs this season, partnering Harry Kane to devastating effect in the forward positions, could now be tied down with a new contract.
Son in advanced talks
The South Korea star is currently on around £140,000-per-week, earning far less than star studded teammates Kane, Tanguy Ndombele and Gareth Bale.
Given his enormous contribution in a Lilywhites shirt over the past few seasons, chairman Daniel Levy looks set to rectify that – with Football Insider now claiming both the club and player are in advanced talks over a new deal.
Coming after Paul Robinson waxed lyrical over how this move is ‘amazing news for Spurs‘, it could also prove Romano correct in his report from last week that Tottenham had indeed planned to commence talks with Son.
Transfer Tavern take
Described as one of Spurs’ ‘very underrated’ stars when compared to the likes of Kane and Bale, the 28-year-old seems to be on the verge of a new deal which could excite Lilywhites.
Alongside Kane, the attacker has dazzled under manager Jose Mourinho this season – scoring a brilliant eight goals and assisting two others in just eight Premier League games (WhoScored).
When this new move is announced by the club is yet to be seen, but these recent reports indicate it is only a matter of time before Son is tied down with a new deal.
