Tottenham make decision on Son Heung-min transfer exit as Al Ittihad ‘plan bid’ | Football | Sport


Tottenham plan on resisting any bids from Al Ittihad for Son Heung-min, in line with reports. The South Korea international has emerged as a shock goal for the Saudi Pro League side as they give the impression of being so as to add to their squad, having already recruited Karim Benzema already. Nevertheless, it appears they could possibly be about to waste their time with a gap bid of around £51million.

In keeping with ESPN, Al Ittihad have set their sights on signing Son.

They’ve already raided Real Madrid for Benzema, with N’Golo Kante primed to affix from Chelsea.

And so they now want Son to return to the Middle East as well, with the Saudi side willing to supply a fee within the region of £51m to get a deal done.

Nevertheless, the report says Tottenham ‘wouldn’t be concerned with listening to an approach if a proper bid is made’.

And that implies they’re confident of keeping the 30-year-old, who has been a key player ever since his arrival back in 2015.

“I believe I’ve got a number of more years to play yet, so I’ll try to maintain scoring more goals,” said the forward.

“I need to go slightly bit higher [in the top scorers list], so I’ll do my best.

“It’s a giant honour to have been playing for a number of years now at this club.

“Obviously I’m not likely focused to be tied with this goalscoring record, obviously I just wish to help the team, but it surely’s a giant honour to be compared with Jermain Defoe, who’s a Spurs legend and scored so many goals for Spurs.

“So I believe to tie this goal tally makes me hugely proud.”

Tottenham skipper Hugo Lloris said on the time: “Sonny’s still the identical guy, truthfully.

“The years have gone so fast! He has the identical enthusiasm, same positivity, same energy, he just has 100 more Premier League goals!

“Step-by-step, he built his fame, his stats, his importance to our team.

“People outside here don’t know him very well. We’re here every single day with him, we all know him more deeply. He has the identical attitude… truthfully, there isn’t a difference between the Sonny who got here here in 2015 and now, just the goals, the stats.

“He still has the identical willingness and desire. I don’t know his limit.

“Yr after yr, he’s reached different levels and today, he belongs up there with the most effective. He’s probably the most effective Asian player of all-time.

“More necessary than all that’s the human side. It’s a joy to be with him and, obviously, he desires to proceed a number of more years like this.”
