The London club have added to their strike force this summer, already singing Vincent Janssen, and are close to confirming the purchase of Marseille’s Georges-Kevin N’Koudou.
But Son doesn’t want to exit the club, who finished 3rd last season in the Premier League, and has instead insisted he would challenge himself to become a stand out player:
“There are always players that you have to battle for playing time, no matter which team you play for,” Son told reporters.
“There’s no reason why I should fall behind in the competition. To win the battle, I have to get better myself.”
The South Korean is busy preparing for the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, after being nominated as one of South Korea’s three wildcard players for the summer games.
Son played in 28 Premier League games last season, netting four times. He finished tied 5th as the club’s highest scorer in the league, 21 goals shy of Harry Kane’s tally, however he rarely played as a central striker.
