Spurs ready to sell disappointing £22m striker after end-of-season collapse

After a devastating end of season collapse that saw Tottenham Hotspur drop several golden opportunities to make a better challenge for the Premier League title and finish 3rd on the table, heads are poised to roll at White Hart Lane and striker Son Heung-Min could be the first on the chopping block.

According to the Telegraph, the South Korean striker is poised to be sold this summer as soon as the Spurs can find a buyer to help them recoup part of the £22 million transfer fee they paid. Son finished the season with 19 starts in 36 appearances in all competitions, scoring a grand total of eight goals – four in the Premier League, one in the FA Cup and three in the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur acquired Son in a £22 million transfer from Bayer Leverkusen this past summer. In his last three seasons in Bundesliga, Son averaged 11 goals per year.

Son was the only forward to receive a start in the Premier League aside from Golden Boot winner Harry Kane this season, making 10 starts in 24 BPL appearances.

Per the source, Tottenham are also looking to sell Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason, both of whom also disappointed this season.
