Could Son leave Tottenham for Italy in the future?
Son Heung-min’s agent has suggested that the Tottenham player would be attracted to a Serie A move if he ever left Spurs but it would be complicated.
Son has been one of Tottenham’s most important players in recent seasons.
Despite a difficult start to his time in north London, the South Korean is now considered to be a top tier forward.
Last season emphasised that, when he scored 20 goals and assisted 10 in all competitions, including four goals in the Champions League.
Now though, he and many of his Spurs teammates are struggling.
Their performances have been sub-par so far this campaign, and their 7-2 loss to Bayern Munich on Tuesday has alarm bells ringing.
It also won’t help that Son’s agent is talking up a move to Napoli or Serie A in the future.
“As for Son at Napoli, why not? You can never say never in football”
In an interview on Radio Marte, as cited by Football Italia, Son’s agent Thies Bliemeister has suggested the player would be open to a move to Italy in the future and wouldn’t rule out Napoli.
Though, it will not be easy ‘because he costs a lot’.
“I’ve never brought a player to Napoli, but I’d like too because Maradona, my favourite player, played for them,” Bliemeister explained.
“I’ve talked to Napoli in the past, with executives who are no longer at the club. I’ll take advantage of this double-header with Salzburg to talk to them.
“As for Son at Napoli, why not? You can never say never in football. Son likes Italy, the food and Italian people.
“It’s not easy to take him from Tottenham because he costs a lot but, one day, who knows?”
