Tottenham sent a scout to watch Dijon midfielder Kwon Chang-hoon last week, according to reports in France.

Kwon, from South Korea, is the international teammate of Heung-Min Son.

French outlet Mercato 365 (via HITC) claims Spurs sent a representative to watch Kwon in action on Friday evening.

Dijon lost 5-2 at home against Lyon – Kwon played 90 minutes and picked up a yellow card.

The 23-year-old has been playing in France for just over a year having joined from Suwon Samsung Bluewings in January 2017.

He has scored nine goals and provided two assists in Ligue 1 so far this season. Kwon has played 16 times at senior level for his country, scoring four goals.

The report also claims German side Borussia Monchengladbach hold an interest in the player, but Tottenham will be a more likely destination if they secure Champions League football.

A midfielder is apparently on Mauricio Pochettino’s shortlist this summer. Whether Kwon is among Spurs’ targets remains to be seen.

It will be interesting to see if the British media pick up on the story.

  1. Here lies the problem. United, City buy the finished article Spurs have to look to develop a player. That takes time and we won’t attract the very top because of a pay structure
    I,m incredibly happy with this and I am realistic we were a load of soft bellies before MP put steel into us and a shambles of a team before Harry for decades
    We all know we have a great coach but without a seismic change in club policy we will always find it hard to consistently compete
