Tottenham Hotspur officially ended their 73-day search for a new head coach earlier this week following the appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo as Jose Mourinho’s successor.

While there have been plenty of reports surrounding the future of Harry Kane, Football Insider are claiming that Heung-min Son’s situation in North London is much more clear.

The report suggests that the South Korean has already indicated to the 47-year-old that he is looking forward to playing under him next season.

The 28-year-old’s current contract expires in the summer of 2023, with The Athletic recently reporting that Spurs are now in a position to confirm a new deal for Son after the club repaid the £175 million loan they took from the Bank of England last year.

Nuno is reported to be ready to build his new side around both Son and Kane, with the pair having linked up with lethal effect in the final third last season.

Keeping Son at the club and rewarding him with a new deal is pivotal, especially if Kane was to do the unthinkable and get his move away from the club.

Son is coming off the back of his most prolific season since joining Spurs, but it’s crucial that Paratici delivers a creative midfielder this summer who can help to unlock a defence with a killer pass to help the pair; too much reliance has been put on Kane to drop deep and for Son to run in behind – there have to be other facets to our game.
