Italian journalist Fabio Santini has made a rather bizarre claim that Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wants to reinvest the money he gets from selling the club’s top players on Spurs attacker Son Heung-min.

Several of Napoli’s attacking stars including the likes of Dries Mertens, José Callejon, and Fabian Ruiz have been linked with moves away from the club with Ruiz, in particular, said to be attracting interest from several European giants (Sport Witness).

Fabio Santini has insisted that the Naples based club will reinvest all of that money into Tottenham’s pacey South Korean.

The journalist told the radio show Il Processo on 7 Gold in Italy, (as relayed by Area Napoli), “Napoli could sell a couple of important players and take in a nice amount of cash.

“One of these is Fábian Ruiz: Real Madrid offered Isco and €20m. De Laurentiis wants €70m because the president of the club wants to reinvest the money on Son, a player doing well at Tottenham.”

Son has been one of Tottenham’s best players over the last few years and still has a long term contract with the club. With the 27-year-old seemingly enjoying life in North London, Spurs likely wouldn’t even contemplate losing for at the moment.

Even if the Napoli president is a fan of Son, Levy wouldn’t consider selling him given how much of an asset he is for the club both on and off the pitch. The South Korean has proven to be one of the most lethal attackers in Europe when on song and hopefully he will go on to enjoy many more years at the club.
