Report: Tottenham join Liverpool in summer race to sign Heung-min Son

Bayer Leverkusen forward Heung-min Son is reportedly a target for Tottenham.

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Bayer Leverkusen forward Heung-Min Son this summer.

Spurs haven't been able to rely on the likes of Roberto Soldado, Emmanuel Adebayor, Erik Lamela or Andros Townsend on a regular basis this season, so manager Mauricio Pochettino may need to bring in at least one new forward this summer.

Now, the Mirror believe that Tottenham will rival Liverpool for the signing of Leverkusen star Son, who has enjoyed a productive season with the Bundesliga club.

The 22-year-old joined Leverkusen from Hamburg almost two years ago, and has hit 15 goals in all competitions for the club this term.

The South Korean international can play out wide or up front, and has also scored ten goals in 42 appearances for his country, emerging as South Korea's brightest new hope.

Now though, the Mirror suggest that Spurs are hoping to land Son this summer as Pochettino attempts to take some of the pressure off Harry Kane in the final third.

It's noted in the report that Leverkusen may demand a £15m fee for Son, which may take a large chunk out of Pochettino's budget should he pursue a bid for the star forward.
