Bayern Munich is targeting a move for Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-Min amid negotiations for a new Spurs contract, according to reports.
The South Korean winger is one of Tottenham’s biggest attacking stars, with 18 goals and 16 assists for the North Londoners this season.
Sportsmail revealed in October that Son has started negotiations with the club on a new £ 200,000-a-week deal, but no contract has been agreed as the season approaches the last few weeks.

And according to Football InsiderGerman giants Bayern Munich are ready to offer Son a new five-year deal worth what Tottenham is asking, while the Bundesliga club are willing to wait a year to get their man.
Son made a name for himself on the European stage playing in Germany, scoring 49 goals in all competitions for both Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen before joining Tottenham in 2015.
The 28-year-old has just over two years left on his current Tottenham contract and Jose Mourinho was confident the winger would sign an extension – despite the delay in negotiations.
Tottenham is still in talks with Son about a new contract, and talks will start in October
The Spurs boss said in February: ‘Son is no problem, he still has a contract for a few years if I’m not mistaken, maybe even three. I believe, just wait for the right time to do it.
Probably this situation with the world we are in is the covid situation, I don’t think now is the right time for players and clubs to discuss contracts with so many people losing jobs and not working and difficulties.
“I believe that when the sun shines again for the world, I think the club and Sonny will reach a conclusion quite easily.”
However, Spurs have left the FA Cup, Europa League and Premier League title race since Mourinho’s most recent comments on Son’s future, with former Tottenham forward and current one. Sportsmail columnist Peter Crouch claimed the winger could stop playing at a higher level.

Spurs haven’t won a trophy since Son first arrived at the club in 2015, while Bayern won the treble last season, including the Champions League trophy.
Crouch told BT Sport after Spurs toppled the Europa League against Dinamo Zagreb: ‘Son and (Harry) Kane are players who deserve to play at a higher level than the Europa League.
“Of course they are loyal to Tottenham and we all hope so, but those kinds of matches certainly don’t help.”
In total, Son has scored 103 goals in 270 Tottenham appearances since joining the club from Germany six seasons ago.
