Son Heung-min eyed by Saudi club Al-Ittihad after Richarlison bid fails

Following their unsuccessful attempt to sign Tottenham’s Richarlison last summer, Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad has turned their attention to another Spurs attacking star: Son Heung-min.

Earlier reports indicated Al-Ittihad’s top target was Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, but with the Reds unwilling to budge, they shifted their focus to Richarlison. However, time constraints prevented them from finalizing a deal before the transfer window closed.

Now, sources suggest Al-Ittihad is making a renewed push for a Premier League attacker, this time setting their sights on Son. Football Transfers reports that the club views Son as a “special” talent and envisions him flanking Abderrazak Hamdallah in a dream attacking trio alongside Salah, who remains their ultimate target.

It’s important to note that these are just rumors at this stage, and Tottenham is unlikely to let go of their star player easily. Son still has two years remaining on his contract with the club, and manager Antonio Conte has repeatedly emphasized his importance to the team.

However, the potential financial allure of a move to Saudi Arabia could be tempting. Al-Ittihad has shown its willingness to splash the cash, offering Liverpool €175 million for Salah earlier. If they are serious about Son, they are likely to prepare a lucrative offer that could test Tottenham’s resolve.

Whether Al-Ittihad’s renewed interest translates into a concrete bid remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Son’s future at Tottenham could become a talking point in the upcoming transfer window, especially if the Saudi club makes a substantial offer.
