Tottenham Hotspur will be without Son Heung-min for a crucial juncture next season, with the Asia Cup set to kick off in January 2024.

Son, who is the captain of South Korea and the country’s most high-profile player, will have to deliver if they are to win their first Asia Cup trophy since 1960.

The Taegeuk Warriors are one of the favourites to go all the way in the tournament, which will be held in Qatar.

The competition, which consists of 24 teams, is set to go ahead from January 12, 2024, to February, 10, which means that Spurs will miss Son for a critical juncture of the season.

The 30-year-old has not been at his best so far this campaign, having found the back of the net just seven times in the Premier League (Transfermarkt) but he has continued to be a mainstay in the starting eleven and came up with a superb goal against Brighton this weekend.

Son will certainly not have another season as poor as the one he has had this time around and is guaranteed to be among the goals as long as the next Spurs manager plays him closer to goal rather than crippling him with defensive duties.

So, he will certainly be a big miss when he is gone and the club need to plan proactively during the summer transfer market to plan for the 30-year-old’s absence.
