Spurs fans were given a pleasant surprise today when rumours broke that the Bayer Leverkusen forward Heung-Min Son could be on his way to White Hart Lane.
Multiple-sources have reported that the South Korean is joining Tottenham, with suggestions that a bid has been accepted and even that Son was in London for a medical.

Bayer Leverkusen are in action tonight in the Champions League against Lazio. It seems that the 23-year old is due to miss the game with an ‘infection’.
The deal also makes sense in relation to our other transfer business. Erik Lamela is possibly leaving to join Inter Milan, while the arrival of Son would reduce the need to sign Saido Berahino. Even if the West Brom striker is still on the shopping list, adding another forward to the ranks certainly puts the club in a less desperate position as they negotiate with the Baggies.
