Bayern Munich are keeping tabs on Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son, according to reports in Italy.
Son has recently returned to Spurs after winning a gold medal with South Korea at the Asian Games, earning exemption from mandatory military service in the process.
The 26-year-old, who signed a new five-year contract over the summer, came off the bench in Sautday’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Wembley and arguably should have been awarded a penalty in stoppage time.
Having initially struggled to cement a place in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line-up after arriving from Bayer Leverkusen, Son has emerged as one of Tottenham’s most important players over the last two seasons.
Such has been the level of his performances, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claims Bayern Munich are monitoring Son’s situation with a view to taking him back to Germany.
If those reports are true, Spurs fans needn’t worry for now – the Londoners have a strong hand with Son having very recently committed his long-term future to the club.
The Korean also appears to be very settled at the club, which should aid Tottenham’s chances of keeping him.
