Tottenham keep tabs on duo during international break
Tottenham have used the international break to scout Dutch midfielder Adam Maher and South Korean forward Son Heung-Min.
Spurs scout watched last Wednesday the evolution of Az Alkmaar youngster Maher, who featured in the friendly match between Holland and Italy, The Daily Mail says. The game ended up with a draw (1-1) and Maher played the 90 minutes.
According to the online version of the tabloid, Tottenham paid also close attention to Hamburg striker Son Heung-Min, who played for South Korea in the 4-0 defeat against Croatia.
Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas would be looking to reinforce the team in the attacking positions, with the incorporation of two young talents in the midfield and forward lines.
Maher is a 19 year-old creative midfielder who is currently standing out at AZ Alkmaar, with 6 goals in 22 games in the Eredivisie. His good progression has took him to the Dutch national team (although Maher was born in Morocco) and the young player seems to be to Lois Van Gaal’s liking. Maher has lately been linked to other clubs such as Arsenal or PSV Eindhoven.
Son Heung-Min is one of the new sensations this season in the Bundesliga. On his third campaign at Hamburg, the young Korean talent seems to have exploded and has scored 7 goals in 19 appearances so far this season. Fast, skilful and with ability to score, gives his best acting as a second striker. His late good performances had called the attention of Chelsea, Arsenal or Borussia Dortmund, among others.
