According to talkSPORT, Son Heung-min could be targeted by Saudi Arabian sides before their transfer window closes this week.

Son admitted back in July that he turned down the chance to move to Saudi Arabia, insisting that playing in the Premier League still remains a ‘dream’ for him (Daily Mail).

The Tottenham star, who looked a shadow of himself last season under Antonio Conte, has made a bright start to the new season, netting a hat-trick in the Lilywhites’ 5-2 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Son could attract late interest from Saudi Arabia

According to talkSPORT, the South Korean could be targeted by Saudi clubs in a big-money deal before their transfer window shuts on Thursday.

The outlet claims that Al Ittihad launched a bid worth £51m for Son back in June, which was turned down by Tottenham.

It is explained that Saudi Pro League clubs could try again for the forward but Spurs are prepared to resist any tempting offer that may arrive in the coming days for the 31-year-old.

Spurs Web Opinion

Son has already made it clear that he wants to remain at Tottenham. So, I do not see the club being tempted to sell the South Korean even if they receive a humungous offer, particularly with the European transfer window now closed.

However, the big test will come next summer as Son will have just 12 months left on his contract (if he does not sign a new deal) and Spurs might be persuaded if they receive a sizable bid.
