Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Son Heung-min has been of interest to many clubs over the last few years but Tottenham always considered the South Korean to be ‘untouchable’.
Spurs fans are used to the constant speculation regarding Harry Kane’s future during every single transfer window.
However, in stark contrast, Son is hardly ever linked with a move away from the club despite him consistently being one of the most productive attackers in the Premier League.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man is the current joint holder of the Premier League Golden Boot and he has been constantly improving every season since arriving at Tottenham back in 2015.
Questions were raised after Son’s lacklustre start to the season, with the striker not finding the back of the net in the first 9 games of the campaign but he answered those resoundingly with a 13-minute hat-trick off the bench in Tottenham’s 6-2 win over Leicester City ahead of the international break.
Romano has now explained that there has been no shortage of interest in Son but the forward has always been happy at Spurs and Daniel Levy has never entertained any advances for the player.
The journalist wrote in his email newsletter on 7:34 am, September 26, 2022: “I started today’s column talking about Harry Kane, but what about his hugely underrated strike partner Son Heung-min?
“Despite being such a top performer for Tottenham for so many years, he’s rarely someone we hear about on the transfer market.
“Well, it’s not due to a lack of interest – there have been many clubs who have looked at him, but he’s always been considered untouchable by Tottenham. When that is the case, it is almost impossible to negotiate with Daniel Levy.
“He’s also really happy in London, and that is why a move away has never been advanced.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Clubs would have likely put out feelers to Son’s representatives to find out if he would have been open to a move, and the fact that Spurs have not received any concrete offer from any club, suggests that the player’s camp made it clear that he is happy where he is.
The South Korean has been incredibly loyal to the club and let us hope that is repaid over the next couple of seasons and that he has some silverware to show for his time in North London.
