Reports from Germany claim that Spurs have set a surprisingly high price for Heung-Min Son.
Bild have reported that Wolfsburg made an offer of €32m, but that Tottenham requested a fee of €40m.
Given the current exchange rate of 1.19 Euros to the Pound, that would mean that the club turned down an offer of £26.8m for Son and want £33.5m for the South Korean. It’s a huge fee for a player that has not managed to secure a regular place under Mauricio Pochettino.
Bild have also claimed that Son remains a target for Wolfsburg, who could bid for the attacking midfielder in January.
If Son finds himself still on the fringes of the Tottenham team come the next transfer window, a move to Wolfsburg could be a tempting proposition for both player and club.
Were Wolfsburg to bid anywhere near the £33.5m that Spurs are rumoured to want for Son, it would be very hard to turn down such an offer, especially considering that £30m had just been paid for Moussa Sissoko.
How Son gets on in the next few months looks set to determine whether he has a future at the club, or if he will instead move back to the Bundesliga for a considerable fee.
