Football London have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are likely to offer Son Heung-min a new deal to keep the South Korea captain beyond the end of his current deal, which expires in the summer of 2023.
Son, 27, is contracted to Tottenham until he is 30 years of age but it is clear that Tottenham want to keep the former Bayer Leverkusen star longer than that. Despite two red cards and a broken arm, Son has still shone for Spurs this season.
Indeed, the attacker has scored 16 goals in 32 league and cup appearances for Tottenham this season – nine of which have come in the Premier League. He has a whopping 83 goals in 220 games – and 44 assists.
According to wage experts Spotrac, Son is currently Tottenham’s third-highest earner on a whopping £140,000 a week – behong Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane, but that could now change. Football London claim it is likely Son will be offered a new deal.
TBR’s view – Spurs need to tie Son down for majority of his career
Son has been one of Tottenham’s best players in the last decade and keeping the Asian ace is absolutely crucial to how well Tottenham can do over the next few years under Mourinho.
Likely to hit his peak in the next two seasons, Son is only going to get better. Fully fit, the attacker guarantees 20 goals a season – and a large number of assists. Alongside Harry Kane, Son can take Spurs to the next level.
Offering him a new deal to keep him well into his thirties is a no-brainer.
