Bayern Munich target Tottenham forward


Bayern Munich target Tottenham forward

Tottenham Hotspur winger Son Heung-min has emerged as a target for Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, according to CalcioMercato.

The winger recently returned from the Asian games where he won gold for his country. The win means that the South Korean will avoid military service for his country.

He came on as a second half substitute in Spurs' 2-1 loss to Liverpool over the weekend, his first game since his return from the Asian games.

As Arjen Robben and Franck Ribéry near the end of their careers, Bayern are looking for replacements, and Son is the latest to be linked with the club.

Manchester United's Anthony Martial was linked with the Bundesliga giants during the last summer transfer window, but the club denied any interest in the player.

Son is expected to play in Spurs' Champions League opener against Inter Milan on Tuesday as they look to bounce back from two straight Premier League defeats.

Tottenham are in group B of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League alongside Barcelona, PSV Eindhoven and Tuesday's opponents Inter Milan.
