'Unplayable' Tottenham ace attracting interest, says pundit


Tottenham Hotspur mean business this season.

Last term was a bit of a setback for the club as Spurs struggled to meet expectations in the Premier League where they finished in sixth place.

As a result the north London club worked tirelessly over the summer to get their squad ready for the challenge ahead.

Jose Mourinho is a proven winner, and that's why so much of the focus was on bringing in players with the correct mentality.

That was certainly done by adding the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Matt Doherty and Joe Hart - all of whom can consider themselves to be proven leaders.

Add into that the quality of players such as Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale and you can see that Spurs are building quite a team.

But we mustn't forget the players already at the club.

Tottenham have some real quality in their ranks with stars who could get into any team in the world.


One of those players is Son Heung-min.

The Spurs star is one of Mourinho's top performers leading to reports that he is set to be offered a new contract to extend his stay in north London.

That would be to bring his wages in line with the Premier League's highest-earners, a status that former midfielder Michael Brown believes is fully deserved.

Speaking to Football Insider, Brown said: “If he’s getting a new contract, no question, he’s unplayable at times.

“He’s being provided with something different and I can’t speak highly enough of him.


“There are teams very much aware of Son, that’s for sure. All the Spurs players attract attention and it’s no different with Son.”

GIVEMESPORT'S Phil Spencer says...

There's no doubt that Son Heung-min deserves a new contract.

The South Korean has probably been Tottenham Hotspur's most consistent performer in recent seasons and that needs to be recognised.

Valued at £67.5million by Transfermarkt, Son is one of the best players in the Premier League and deserves to be rewarded as one.

He could certainly play for any club in the world and that's why it's so important that Spurs value him properly.

If they don't then they risk losing him - something that would be a disaster.
