Inter considering Tottenham sensation

Not even the most faithful Tottenham supporters could have anticipated such a brilliant form from the unlikely hero of theirs Son Heung-Min.

The South Korean has made a blistering start to the 2016-17 season with Tottenham as the 24-year-old forward has scored 4 goals in three Premier League appearances, while he wrote his name on the score sheet once again this week with a winner against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League.

Son Heung-Min arrived to Tottenham two seasons ago from Bayer Leverkusen and is now establishing himself as an irreplaceable member of Pochettino’s team, but his future could be in doubt due to interest from Inter Milan.

Indonesian businessman and the head of Serie A giants Erick Thohir has considered going for the Korean player in his early days with Inter and Gazzetta dello Sport seem to be suggesting that he could return for Son Heung-Min to make a further break on to the Asian market.

Rostov draw is two points dropped for PSV, says De Jong

PSV deserved to take all three points from their Champions League clash with Rostov, according to Luuk de Jong.

Phillip Cocu’s side were frustrated for much of the encounter, Dmitry Poloz netting twice for Rostov in the first-half – either side of Davy Propper’s equaliser.

De Jong managed to level proceedings on the stroke of half-time with a close-range header, but PSV passed up a glorious chance for a winner when Propper had a penalty saved.

And De Jong believes that the result represents a missed opportunity for the Eredivise champions, who were beaten by Atletico Madrid on matchday one and face Bayern Munich next in Group D.

Niklas Sule in high demand

Hoffenheim hotshot Niklas Sule is slowly emerging as one of Bundesliga’s most sought-after footballers, according to Bild.

The product of club’s youth academy won the silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics before he was handed his senior Germany debut in the August friendly against Finland.

Sule’s impressive showings clearly did not go unnoticed as he is reportedly a target for Premier League giants Chelsea, but other top clubs are keen as well.

Namely, Bild claims that Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton, Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Inter Milan all had their scouts present as the 21-year-old represented Hoffenheim against Schalke last weekend.

Preud´homme admits Champions League too much for Club Brugge

Club Brugge coach Michel Preud’homme admitted his side were coming up short at Champions League level after an embarrassing 4-0 defeat to Copenhagen on Tuesday.

A Thomas Delaney strike, goals from Federico Santander and Mathias Jorgensen and an embarrassing Stefano Denswil own goal saw the Danish champions canter to an easy win.

It could have been worse for the Belgian side, but Ludwig Augustinsson missed a penalty for Copenhagen.

The result, following on from their 3-0 defeat to Leicester City, leaves Club Brugge rooted to the bottom of Group G, and Preud’homme says his side are not equipping themselves well in the Champions League.

Leicester confirm interest in Adrien Silva

Premier League champions Leicester City are ready to rekindle their interest in Sporting CP star Adrien Silva, according to manager Claudio Ranieri.

The Foxes were on the verge of recruiting the highly rated footballer in the summer transfer window, only for the deal to fail to materialise.

However, it would appear as though Leicester City will make a fresh assault on the 27-year-old in the January transfer window.

“We are following many players. Adrien is a great player, why not (try and sign him)?”, Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri told RTP ahead of the Champions League fixture against FC Porto, where the Foxes are 11/8 to emerge victorious.

Schmidt lauds hitman Hernandez

Bayer Leverkusen head coach Roger Schmidt is delighted to have Javier Hernandez in prime form ahead of the Champions League Group E clash with Monaco.

After being restricted to a diet of substitute appearances and occasional starts with Manchester United and Real Madrid, Hernandez relished life as Leverkusen’s attacking focal point last season – scoring 26 times in all competitions, including five in six Champions League outings.

The Mexico international missed the start of Leverkusen’s Bundesliga campaign after falling down the stairs at home and suffering a broken hand, but he was back to his brilliant best over the weekend, scoring a hat-trick as Schmidt’s men twice came from behind at Mainz to win 3-2.

“Javier Hernandez is a very important player for us because he scores goals,” Schmidt told a news conference at the Stade Louis II.
