Tottenham Hotspur attacker Heung-Min Son is being lined up for a shock move to German side Wolfsburg.

German channel Sport1 report the South Korean is a target for the Bundesliga big spenders, as a replacement for striker Bas Dost who HITC Sport understand is in talks with Newcastle United.

The report states Son is Wolfsburg's top target if they sell Bas Dost, and it is claimed Tottenham would want in excess of 20 million Euros (£17.2 million) for his signature.

Son has returned to the UK after representing South Korea at the Olympic games in Brazil, and faces a battle to establish himself in the Tottenham first team.

After making an excellent start to his Spurs career after signing from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, Son faded as the season wore on, and was one of their worst players in the 5-1 end of season defeat to Newcastle.

He did not seize his chance to impress on pre-season tour and while Tottenham have not given any indication he is up for sale, it would not be a surprise to see them cash in if the opportunity to recoup their money presented itself.

The trouble would be at this late stage, there would be little time to sign a replacement, with incoming Georges-Kevin N'Koudou taking the place of Clinton N'Jie in the squad, although one option would be winger Andriy Yarmolenko, linked with a £18 million switch from Dinamo Kiev this week by The Sun.
