The Hamburg youngster, who has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool, is extremely versatile and can play either on the wing or upfront.
The North Londoners are looking to bring in reinforcements to aid Villas-Boas’ quest of bringing Champions League football to White Hart Lane next season and are looking to new faces to join up with the already signed Lewis Holtby and Zeki Fryers.
Son Heung-Min has enjoyed a good season in the Bundesliga this year netting six goals in sixteen games for Hamburg, in what has been a steady season for Thorsten Fink’s side.

Tottenham will be hoping that their relationship with Hamburg’s Sporting Director Frank Arnesen, will ensure a smooth negotiation.
