Tottenham forward Son Heung-min’s future at White Hart Lane is under threat, after comments from his agent linking him with a move to Napoli.
The 27 year old South Korean international joined Spurs in August 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen for £22 million, and has gone on to play for the club nearly 200 times in all competitions, scoring 70 goals.
He played a big role for them last season, scoring 12 goals and providing 6 assists in the Premier League, and he was also instrumental in helping them to reach the Champions League final.
But, with the current unrest at Tottenham, Son is considering looking elsewhere, with the Serie A side leading the race for his signature.
Thies Bliemeister, Son’s agent said “Son likes Italy, the food and Italian people. It’s not easy to take him from Tottenham because he costs a lot but, one day, who knows?”
If Son does move to Napoli, he will find a familiar face already there in the form of Fernando Llorente, who joined the Italian club in the summer after being released on a free transfer by Tottenham.
