Son Heung-min opens up on the mood inside Tottenham amid Harry Kane’s uncertain future
Harry Kane’s future still remains up in the air amid strong rumoured Manchester City interest.
His Spurs team-mate Son Heung-min has been talking about the mood in the Tottenham camp ahead of the season opener, amid the ongoing Kane speculation.
“Everybody should be ready for every game, that is so important,” Son said.
“There is a chance every game, we know how important that is. If you’re not focused, if you’re not ready, then every game we are going to struggle.
“That is why, in the pre-season, we are working really hard to try and make it as easy as possible for the coming season.
“We want to focus game by game to try and win the games and we will see when we arrive what we can achieve.”

Moussa Sissoko linked to exit
Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko is the subject of interest from Italian clubs as well as sides elsewhere, amid suggestions he has been told to find a new team.
However, it is believed the Frenchman’s expected departure has not gone down well with his fellow countryman Tanguy Ndombele, who is said to be considering his future with the club.
Speaking on his Here We Go podcast about where Sissoko’s future may lie, Romano had the following to say on the possibility of him departing the north London club this summer.
“Sissoko from Tottenham has [a] few chances to leave the club. He is one of the players considered on the market,” Romano said.
“Keep an eye on Italian clubs for him, but not only Italian clubs, because he’s considered on the market for Tottenham and also from other countries. Other leagues are coming interested for him.”
