Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad are set to face defeat in their pursuit of Tottenham winger Son Heung-min, as they were expected to make an opening offer of €60 million for the South Korean star.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham are unwilling to listen to offers for Son Heung-min, who has finally broken his silence after being tipped with a move to the Saudi Pro League.
News of Son potentially heading to Saudi Arabia first broke a fortnight ago when reports came out that the South Korean was a transfer target for 2024.
However, ESPN dropped a bombshell recently, reporting a move for the 30-year-old is in the process of being accelerated, with Al Ittihad hoping to land Son a year early, as the Gulf state continues its drive to become a global footballing force to be reckoned with.
With Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and soon enough the likes of N’Golo Kante and Ruben Neves plying their trade in the Saudi Pro League, Son has become the latest big-name player to be linked with a lucrative move.
The reigning Saudi Pro League champions Al-Ittihad, who recently recruited Benzema and have agreed a deal with Kante, were said to be ‘ready to move’ for the potent Spurs forward.
To tempt the player away from north London, a huge contract worth €30 million per season is apparently in the works.
Although the player’s contract expires in the summer of 2025, Spurs may be tempted to accept such a deal next year if they are still unable to secure Champions League football.
