Gold says some at Tottenham are a 'little bit worried' about star's injury

Alasdair Gold has suggested on his YouTube channel that some at Tottenham Hotspur are a little concerned that Son Heung-min could be out with injury for longer than Antonio Conte had initially feared.

Son had been an ever-present since Conte’s appointment at Tottenham. However, he had to come off during the latter stages of the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie with Chelsea.

Conte suggested following the game that the South Korean is set to be out for the rest of the month. Obviously, that would be a big blow. Spurs face Chelsea twice more and take on Arsenal and Leicester before January concludes.

But Gold has suggested that there is a worry at Hotspur Way that his absence could be a little longer.

“Sonny, we’re waiting to find out more details. Conte hopes it’s only two weeks. I think it’s a hamstring problem. There’s some within the club that are a little bit worried that it could be more like five weeks or more,” he said, in a video on his YouTube channel.

Tottenham fans may hope Son injury inspires club to act in transfer market

Of course, Tottenham will avoid panic-buying in this window. And it does seem unlikely that the injury to Son will force them to deviate from whatever they have planned this month.

But losing him is a real setback for Conte’s men. He has scored four goals and provided three assists in his last six Premier League appearances.

So replacing him is not going to be easy. And with Tottenham already light on options in the final third, Son’s absence is going to be particularly noticeable.

If he is looking set for another five weeks on the sidelines, Tottenham will surely have discussions about changing their transfer plans. And the right opportunity presents itself, perhaps Spurs may be more inclined to make a move happen.
