According to Calcio Mercato, Juventus are after Tottenham winger Heung-min Son.
Ramsey for Son
The Old Lady are believed to be interested in taking the South Korea international to Italian – this reports says the 28-year-old would cost €90m (£78.6m).
The report adds that Juve could look to sell the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Douglas Costa and Federico Bernadeschi in a bid to raise some funds to sign Son.
Makes no sense
Along with Harry Kane, Son is Tottenham’s most important player. So far this campaign, he has 17 goals and 12 assists in all competitions, while he has 102 strikes in 263 games for the north London outfit since joining from Bayer Leverkusen (Transfermarkt). Last year, Jose Mourinho called him “precious” after a goal against Aston Villa secured a 3-2 win for Spurs (talkSPORT), while he also lauded him as a “special player” just last month.
Would you take money + Ramsey for Son?
Selling the South Korea international for whatever kind of money would surely be a backwards step for Spurs, especially if they harbour intentions of trying to win trophies and compete on the biggest European stage year-in and year-out.
Cashing in on your best players sends completely the wrong message, and it surely wouldn’t have Mourinho himself pleased either. The Lilywhites would be better off just turning down anything Juventus might have to offer.
