Graham Roberts is worried that Son Heung-min might re-evaluate his future at Tottenham if Harry Kane leaves this summer.
Kane, who was open about wanting to have a conversation with Daniel Levy on his future, is reportedly a summer target for Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea.
However, the striker’s departure is by no means a foregone conclusion, with the England captain still having three years left on his contract in North London.
David Ornstein has told Sky Sports that Kane publicly hinting about his desire to leave might have softened Spurs’ stance on the striker’s future, with the club potentially now being more willing to sell him to a domestic rival if their valuation is met.
However, Roberts fears that if Kane does leave, that could also put a question mark over Son’s future.
It was previously reported that the South Korean is close to agreeing on a contract extension with Tottenham but Roberts doubts whether the forward will still put pen to paper on a new deal if Kane is no longer at the club.
The legendry Spurs defender told Football Fancast: “The problem you’ve got is Heung-Min Son, we need to keep him.
“They’re talking about him signing a new contract.
“If you’re Son and they get rid of Harry Kane, what’s the ambition there?”

It is not just Son’s future at Spurs that would potentially be threatened by Kane’s departure but the club will also be a much less exciting destination for the players and managers we are targeting if the England captain leaves. I expect Levy will have to promise his managerial targets that Kane will remain at the club if he is to convince them to take the job.
