Tottenham rumoured to be lining up bid for Bayer Leverkusen ace Son Heung-Min

South Korea international Son Heung-Min could be the subject of some interest from Tottenham Hotspur this January, according to fresh reports.

Tottenham could be set to rekindle their rumoured interest in Bayer Leverkusen attacker Son Heung-Min, if newly-emerging reports are to be believed.

The Lilywhites have long been linked with a move for the South Korea international, who has impressed throughout his time in the Bundesliga with both Hamburg and most recently Leverkusen.

A highly-competent winger capable of playing on either flank, the 22-year-old is enjoying a stellar season at the BayArena, with 11 goals in 21 outings for the German team so far this season, including three goals in the Champions League group phase.

One of the few bright spots for South Korea at the World Cup, the attacker, who has earned the nickname “Sonaldo” for his exploits in the Bundesliga, could cost Tottenham as much as £20 million, with the Daily Star claiming that the north London club are leading the race to sign the midfielder.

A goal scorer for the national side in Brazil, Son came to Leverkusen from Hamburg, where he managed 12 goals in 34 appearances during his final season with the beleaguered German giants.

Confident on either foot, while Son is often deployed as a winger he is also capable of playing further forward in either a supporting striker or out-and-out goal poacher, when required.

Previously linked with moves to the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United, the signing of the 2014 Asian Footballer of the Year would represent a major coup for the Lilywhites with Mauricio Pochettino still chasing a top four finish this term.

Spurs currently sit 10th in the Premier League and remain five points off one of the Champions League qualification spots.

The Lilywhites are in action this week against Besiktas in the Europa League with the winner of the game set to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition as the group winner.
