Tottenham Hotspur To Offer In-Form Goal Scorer A New Deal: Smart Move By Pochettino?

Tottenham Hotspur still have a shot at silverware in the FA Cup this season but Mauricio Pochettino will know that it is important for his side to qualify for the Champions League next season. It will not only allow him to spend on star players to add to his squad in the summer but will also allow him to retain first-team stars, that are important to the squad.

While the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli are on the radar of a number of clubs from all over Europe, one player Spurs are desperate to keep at the club is in-form winger Son Heung-Min.

Standing as the highest scoring Asian in the Premier League at the moment, Son is now Spurs’ most important goal scorer at the moment, now that English striker Harry Kane is injured. The 25-year old South Korean is in great goalscoring form and Pochettino is convinced that he is an option for his side in the long term.

And reports now claim that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to extend his contract in the upcoming weeks. According to reports from Sky, Spurs will open contract talks with Son this month and are confident that he will put pen to paper before the end of the season.

A pacey winger with a keen eye for goal, Son has proven his worth against the toughest defences in the league and in Europe and has 18 goals and four assists in all competitions for the North London outfit this season. He is expected to take over Harry Kane’s role in the squad till he is back from an injury and Spurs need him to be at his best to end the season on a high.

With 30 goals and 14 assists in 91 PL games, Son will want to improve on his record and will get his chance. His current contract with the club ends in 2020 but Spurs are hoping that he will pledge his future for another couple of years.

The rules in his home country, that require every male to complete at least 21 months of national service will mean that Son will miss almost two years of football before the 2021-22 season, which will be a problem for the English outfit, but he has shown enough promise to warrant a place in the side regularly.

Lucas Moura, Spurs’ new signing is the only other outright winger in the side and extending Son’s contract will enable Pochettino to spend on improving other areas of the squad.

But is Son worth all the fuss?
