Real Madrid ‘identify Tottenham’s Son Heung-min as a potential target’ after their quest to bolster Carlo Ancelotti’s frontline continues after missing Kylian Mbappe

  • The champions of Europe look to strengthen their forward line this summer
  • Real Madrid have reportedly identified Tottenham striker Son as a target

Real Madrid have reportedly identified Heung-min Son as a target this summer as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Son, 29, had a remarkable year in the Premier League for Tottenham last season, scoring 23 goals on his way to the golden boot.

Carlo Ancelotti, after overseeing his second Champions League win as manager at Real Madrid, and fourth overall, will look to bolster his options this summer after a number of departures.

Both Gareth Bale and Isco will leave this summer after their contracts expire and there are suggestions that Marco Asensio, who Liverpool and AC Milan said are interested, could also leave.

After chasing Kylian Mbappe for so long, Real Madrid were left with an egg on their faces after the Frenchman decided to stay with Paris Saint-Germain.

The club are now forced to look for alternatives and the Spurs attacker could be the perfect option.

His 23 goals were hugely influential in ensuring Antonio Conte’s side steered bitter rivals Arsenal to the fourth and final Champions League spot, putting the team through some tough months.

It’s unclear how much it would cost the Spanish giants to win the South Korean international away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but as they know from previous deals for Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, Daniel Levy is striking a tough deal.

Son signed a new contract with Spurs last summer, committing him to the club until at least 2025, so as with Harry Kane last summer, the club has no reason to sell.

“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players and the staff,” Son said when signing the deal last summer.

“There was no decision. It was easy. I am so happy to be here and will be so happy to see the fans again soon.”

Other attackers linked with a move to the Spanish capital include Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho and Richarlison, who is reportedly looking to leave Everton.
