Getting South Korean forward Son Heung-min to sign a new long-term deal is a priority for Tottenham’s new Director of Football Fabio Paratici.
An offer has been on the table for him for some time, dating back to when Jose Mourinho was in charge of the team, but there have been fears that he is stalling on agreeing a new contract as Tottenham have regressed as serios title contenders.
Teams like Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Liverpool are all known admirers of Son, and would be prepared to make an offer for the 29-year old, who still has two years left to run on his current contract in North London.
Progress though appears to have been made, and Paratici is hoping that Son will soon put pen to paper, giving him one less thing to worry about at least.
Son joined Spurs from Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £27 million in August 2015.
