Tottenham reportedly have a plan in place to try secure the long-term future of their star Heung-Min Son by handing him a new deal.
According to the Guardian, Spurs are set to begin talks with the attacker’s representatives over a contract extension and they want to make him one of their top earners to reward him for his brilliant form in the last few years.
It is understood that Son’s current deal with the North London club is worth £140,000-a-week and it’s set to expire in 2023.
But Jose Mourinho’s side plan to try extend his contract and they are likely to offer the South Korean fresh terms on £200,000-a-week to keep him until 2025 or 2026.
Son, 28, has been a vital player for Spurs in recent years with his consistent performances and he’s been an ever-present under current boss Mourinho.
He’s already scored 10 goals and managed five assists in 13 games across all competitions this season.
There is no doubt that Son is one of the individuals that thoroughly deserves a new contract and has more than earned the right to be alongside the top earners at the club.
He is a versatile attacker that is at his very best cutting inside from the left wing and the partnership he’s formed with striker Harry Kane is arguably the most feared in the Premier League division right now.
His £22million (Guardian) signature back in 2015 from Bayer Leverkusen has to go down as one of the club’s best pieces of transfer business for a long time and he’s now just five short of 100 Spurs goals.
