Earlier we reported that Wolfsburg and Spurs have agreed on a fee of around £26 million for the transfer of Heung-Min Son, according to German newspaper Bild.
That may be true, but it appears the player himself knows very little about a potential exit.
ESPN reports that Son, speaking to the press before South Korea’s World Cup qualifier against China on Thursday, is “in the dark” over a possible return to the Bundesliga.
Son said: “I haven’t heard anything about my transfer,” adding that rumours of his departure are “not a good sign.”
The attacker is still highly rated in Germany, and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Tottenham were keen to make a profit on yet another player who will find it difficult to break into the first team this season.
Spurs have already shipped Nacer Chadli off to West Brom for £13 million and Alex Pritchard to Norwich for £8 million as Mauricio Pochettino looks to streamline his squad, particularly in the attacking midfield area.
If Son is unaware of a potential move away from the club then perhaps it’s too late for him to secure an exit. Many Tottenham fans will be pleased to see a player with such potential stay at White Hart Lane.
