Tottenham have reportedly put contract talks for Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min “on hold” for now given the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The dynamic Spurs pair have been in dazzling form so far this season, with 32 goals between them. They have also had 22 assists in all competitions.
Jose Mourinho’s men currently sit fourth in the Premier League table and are four points behind leaders Liverpool.
There have been strong rumours that Spurs were looking to tie both players down to lucrative new deals.
However, the Evening Standard claims that the club are in no rush to offer Son or Kane new deals.
The report adds that Son still has two-and-a-half years left on his contract. Kane, who has been linked with Manchester City, has three-and-a-half years still running on his current deal.
The report adds that the effects of COVID-19 means that contract extensions are unlikely for both men at this current time.
It is also stated that a new contract for veteran skipper Hugo Lloris is a priority.
The France goalkeeper only has 18 months left, while Erik Lamela and Serge Aurier have a year-and-a-half remaining on their respective deals.
Tottenham told Milik asking price
Tottenham will have to pay €15m if they still want to sign Arkadiusz Milik from Napoli in January, it is claimed.
Milik has not played at all for Napoli this season after being left out of their squad list. He is out of contract at the end of the campaign.
Given his exclusion from the squad, he is extremely unlikely to stay at the club. The striker could even be on the move six months before the expiration of his contract.
Reports have linked Tottenham with a move for the Poland international. Spurs are looking for more depth in the attacking positions.
Carlos Vinicius joined the club on loan from Benfica in the summer, but hasn’t hit the ground running in the Premier League despite some promising performances in Europe. In fact, he is still yet to start a league game in England.
Therefore, Tottenham may be considering some longer-term solutions. Milik is a player they have been tracking for some time.
Even though Napoli risk losing him for nothing in six months, they have still set a fairly high asking price to sanction his departure.
According to RMC Sport, the Serie A side want €15m to allow Milik to leave this month. That could dissuade a number of suitors. Read more…
