Tottenham have been told to pay whatever it takes to get Son Heung-min to stay at the club as he is the best player in the Premier League. That’s according to Gabby Agbonlahor who thinks Daniel Levy should do everything to keep hold of the South Korea international.
Son has impressed again this season, netting 10 times and providing fives assists for his team-mates.
Agbonlahor thinks Spurs should make sure they pay whatever is required to keep the 28-year-old at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Reports have claimed the club are readying a £200,000-a-week offer to the forward.
And Agbonlahor thinks the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid could all swoop if he isn’t willing to put pen to paper.
“Son is the best player in the Premier League, for me, by a country mile,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider.
“If I was Tottenham I’d be putting down on a contract on whatever he wants, just to get him signed on because he can go to any club in the world.
“At any club in the world he’d be starting, we’re talking Liverpool, Man City, Real Madrid, Barcelona he’s that good.
“Spurs will know that, Jose will know that, Daniel Levy will know that so I’m sure they’ll tie him down and he’ll be one of the highest earners for sure.”
Son, who has been at the club since 2015, is under contract until 2023 and is one of the club’s highest earners.
But Tottenham officials want to reward him for his impressive form and give him a bumper new deal to ensure he stays.
Speaking to the Transfer Window Podcast, Ian McGarry revealed that the star is expected to be given a written offer by the end of the week.
“Daniel Levy, met with Son’s representatives from the CAA,” he said.
“The deal was discussed in general.
“The deal we are led to believe that is being offered to Son will be equal to Harry Kane’s.
“He’ll be earning around £200,000 per-week – if he agrees to it obviously.
“That’s an awful lot of money for Tottenham Hotspur.
“They’ve traditionally had their wage structure, and there’s a pyramid structure to that.
“Son earning the same as the captain would be quite a departure in terms of the way Spurs do their business.
“He’s a player who has scored some sensational goals this season, he’s the third top scorer in the Premier League in this calendar year, and he’s already been at the club for seven years [sic].
“This would probably take him more or less past his prime and into the point where he would be looking to sign a deal either abroad or less than this particular one.
“A four-year contract is being offered, substantial money, Spurs fans will be extremely pleased that those negotiations are ongoing.
“Another meeting is planned before the end of the week, and that is expected to result in a written offer to Son in order to secure his future to [the club].”
