Tottenham Hotspur can secure their place in the last 16 of the Champions League by beating Sporting Lisbon in London on Wednesday. 

Antonio Conte’s side currently sit top of Group D, knowing that victory over the Portuguese side will see them progress through to the knockout stages of the competition.

Domestically, Spurs have been in poor form of late, losing to Manchester United and Newcastle United in their last two games.

Despite the back-to-back defeats, The Lilywhites remain third in the Premier League table, although it now appears that Conte may face a huge headache in the coming months.

As reported by Sport1 via The Mail, Champions League holders Real Madrid are keeping tabs on forward Son Heung-Min.

The report claims that Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of the player, and would be interested in signing him.

Son has been instrumental alongside Harry Kane for Spurs over the past few seasons, but the report claims that he is now considering his future and is looking for a big move.

The South Korean started the current season slowly before netting a hat-trick after being substituted on against Leicester City last month.

Since then, the 30-year-old hasn’t scored again in the league, although he did net a brace against Eintracht Frankfurt in Spurs’ last Champions League game.

Last term, Son shared the Premier League golden boot award having netted 23 goals, none of which were penalties.

The South Korea international arrived in the capital back in 2015, joining from German side Bayer Leverkusen for a fee of £27 million.

The forward netted just four goals during his first Premier League campaign, before scoring 21 times across all competitions the following season.

Since then, he has established himself as one of the world’s best attackers, scoring 64 goals across all competitions during the course of the last three full seasons.

In total, Son has scored 136 goals for Tottenham, although he is yet to win a trophy with the club.

Son, who is contracted to the club until 2025, has rarely been linked with a move away from Spurs, unlike Kane who was reportedly close to joining Manchester City last summer and has since been linked with Bayern Munich.

Son and Kane have combined for more goals than any other pair in the history of the Premier League, but if the reports in Germany are to be believed, they may not have much longer to add to that tally.
