Tottenham are reportedly set to reward Son Heung-Min with a new contract that will place the forward amongst their highest earners, with the club ‘confident’ of reaching an agreement with the South Korean.
Son has enjoyed a blistering start to the new season and is the joint-leading scorer in the Premier League after scoring eight goals in just seven league fixtures so far this season, dovetailing superbly with Harry Kane in attack during Spurs’ free-scoring start to the campaign.
Tottenham are now keen to reward the in-form star and are preparing a contract offer that will greatly increase the player’s wages, moving Son closer to the likes of Kane as the club’s highest-earning player.
According to Football Insider, owner Joe Lewis has given the ‘green light’ for the deal and the club are hopeful a new contract will be agreed before the New Year, with speculation suggesting Son could earn around £200,000-a-week.
The 28-year-old’s current deal runs until 2023 but the club are keen to acknowledge Son’s fine form and increased importance to the side, the South Korea international having established himself as one of the finest forwards in the Premier League.
Son’s new deal will be a welcome boost to Jose Mourinho who will be keen to secure the long-term future of one of his key players, as Spurs look to build on a promising start and challenge for major silverware this season.
