Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that the club is doing all it can to reward Heung-Min Son with a new contract, and believes the deal will be sorted soon.
Son has exploded into life this season. Having already scored seven times in the Premier League, the forward once again found the net in the Europa League win over LASK last night.
And speaking to The Evening Standard, Mourinho believes that everything will be completed soon enough when it comes to the South Korean.
“I would love him to sign a new contract. Son has three years of contract, so it’s not like we’re in an extreme situation of everybody being worried. It’s more that Son loves it here, I believe that he would like to commit his future to the club for a long time.
“It’s a very calm situation because Sonny has three more years of contract. But I wish [for him to get a new contract]. He deserves one. The club knows that and sooner or later, without any pressure, they will arrive into a decision.”
Son currently earns around £140k-a-week at Spurs, putting him below the top earners such as Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele.
However, it is believes Daniel Levy will offer him something similar to that of Kane, as the Spurs supremo looks to tie down the forward to a deal for the next five to six years at least.
One of the best in the world – TBR View
Few would have seen Son becoming one of the very best forwards in world football when he originally signed for Spurs but that is exactly what has happened in the last two or three years.
Put simply, he is right up there now with the absolute cream of the crop.
Son can be the man to guide Spurs to success and if he and Harry Kane can stay fit, then there is little doubt a trophy or two will come the club’s way in the coming year or two.
