Heung-min Son’s form for Tottenham Hotspur over the past few seasons has seen him attract interest from Germany.

According to Calciomercato, Bayern Munich ‘insists’ on the South Korean international, who signed a five-year deal with the Premier League outfit earlier in July.

The north London club signed the forward from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and he spent two seasons with the latter, having joined the Bundesliga club from Hamburger SV in 2013.

The Italian website’s report consists of just one line and does not mention whether the player or the English club are open to the idea of the transfer, or if there has been any talks between the two clubs or between Bayern and Son.

It makes sense for the Bavarian club to make an approach for the Spurs’ star since he already has the experience of playing in Germany and could replace 35-year-old Franck Ribery, whose contract at the Allianz Arena runs out in 2019.

However, it is unlikely that Mauricio Pochettino would be willing to sanction Son’s sale, especially after the club decided against strengthening the squad in the summer.
