Tottenham Hotspur are confident that they will reach an agreement with Son Heung-Min on a contract renewal this season
Tottenham Hotspur seemed to be home and dry against West Ham after their dominant display in the first half. Son Heung-Min opened the scoring for Spurs in less than a minute after Harry Kane played an exquisite chipped through ball to find the South Korean. However, despite the early dominance, the north London side succumbed to the Hammers in the last ten minute of the game that ended in a stunning 3-3 draw.
Nonetheless, there have been several positives this season for Tottenham under Jose Mourinho. This the Portuguese manager’s first full season in charge of the club after taking over midway last season. Spurs have had a rather fruitful transfer window and now the pressure is on Mourinho to finally deliver the club silverware.
The 2020/21 season, has seen Tottenham play brilliant fast-flowing counter-attacking football. In particular, Son Heung-Min seems to be better than ever as the South Korean has become a lethal goal-scoring machine. In just five Premier League fixtures so far, the Korean has now scored seven goals and has provided two assists as well. Quite an impressive start so far from the former Bayern Leverkusen man.
It has now been reported that Daniel Levy wants to begin talks with Son over a possible contract renewal. The chairman of Tottenham Hotspur has a very strict policy that the club must begin negotiations for a contract renewal two years before the current contract expires to avoid losing the player on a free transfer.
Jose Mourinho had lost out on Christian Eriksen last season as the Dane signed for Inter Milan for just 17 million pounds. Daniel Levy does not want the same scenario to reoccur with Heung-Min Son and has considered offering the Korean a new contract. The new deal would see Son earn a significantly higher amount than compared to his current 150,000 pounds per week wage rate.
Meanwhile, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela have entered the final year of their contract as well. However, there have been no talks of a possible renewal as of yet. Both Aurier and Lamela will most likely leave Spurs at the end of the season given that the current squad is quite clustered.
