Tottenham Hotspur target Kwang-Son Han's agent has spoken out on the north Londoners reported interested in his client in an interview with Sport Witness, after it emerged Spurs were reportedly targeting the North Korean youth international.
Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb claimed Spurs have contacted the 19-year-old's representatives over a move this month, but face competition from Serie A champions Juventus.
However, the 19-year-old attacker's agent Sandro Stemperini stated that he is yet to receive any calls from the north Londoners over the availability of the Cagliari teenager, who has shone on loan with Serie B side Perugia this season.
Stemperini stated that he is yet to be contacted by Spurs but several German officials have asked about his client, while Juventus have made it clear they are monitoring the versatile attacker's situation as well as revealing Liverpool's interest.
“Officially, I do not have a call from Tottenham," Stemperini said. "There are several officials, from Germany. It’s normal that several clubs ask about him.
"Because he is a youngster who is playing very well, who here in Italy is being followed by Juventus, an important club. It’s normal for everyone to talk to me. But officially, from Tottenham, I do not have a call.
“Before going to Cagliari, Liverpool had an interest in him. Liverpool already knew the player. Liverpool were seriously interested. They did not come back, no. Now I know nothing about it. Of course the player likes the Premier League."
A three-time North Korea Under-19 international, Kwang's form has alerted clubs to his presence this season with seven goals in 19 outings as well as adding three assists.
He can play out wide, in the number 10 role but is more naturally a centre-forward. Kwang has a contract with Serie A side Cagliari until the summer of 2020, but they may find it difficult to prevent him from moving on.
