Tottenham's Son Heung-min Offered £100 Million to Join Saudi Arabia's Football Revolution

Tottenham's South Korean forward, Son Heung-min, has reportedly been offered a staggering £100 million to join Saudi Arabian champions Al-Ittihad, as the Gulf nation continues its ambitious drive to become a global football powerhouse.

With football stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, and Ruben Neves already playing or set to play in the Saudi Pro League, Son has become the latest high-profile player to be linked with a lucrative move. The 30-year-old forward is being targeted by Al-Ittihad, who recently signed Benzema and have agreed on a deal with Kante.

According to ESPN, the newly-crowned Saudi champions, who defeated Ronaldo's Al-Nassr to claim the title last season, are preparing an opening bid in the region of €60 million (£51 million). Al-Ittihad has also offered Son a lucrative four-year contract, which would see him earn €30 million (£25.6 million) per season.

Despite the confidence in the Middle East that the 30-year-old could be tempted, Tottenham is unwilling to listen to offers and has Son tied down on a contract until 2025. His departure would serve as a significant blow for new manager Ange Postecoglou, who is already fighting to keep captain Harry Kane at the club.

Son has been a Spurs player since 2015, having moved from German side Bayer Leverkusen. With an impressive tally of 145 goals in 372 games and 80 assists, the South Korea captain remains a crucial component in Tottenham's attack and has shown no desire to leave North London this summer.

In April, Son declared that he has a "few more years to play" at the top level, promising to "try to keep scoring more goals." He also expressed his pride at matching Jermaine Defoe's record as the sixth all-time top goalscorer for Spurs.

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris insists that Son hasn't lost his infectious personality despite not being at his best last term. Lloris remarked, "Year after year, he's reached different levels and today, he belongs up there with the best. He's probably the best Asian player of all-time."

Defender Ben Davies also praised Son, stating, "It takes a special player to be able to contribute as much in games as he does and to be that effective, consistently. You see a lot of good wingers out there, but not many get anywhere near his contributions. It’s incredibly impressive and huge for our team."

As Saudi Arabia continues its football revolution, it remains to be seen whether Son Heung-min will consider the lucrative offer to join Al-Ittihad and the growing list of football stars in the Saudi Pro League.
