Tottenham face a real battle with Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund for the signature of Hamburg striker Heung-Min Son.
Spurs chief Andre Villas-Boas is looking to bolster his forward line in the summer transfer window as Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe have not been in prolific form which could yet cost the Londoners a place in the Champions League via a top-four Premier League finish.
It is thought the north Londoners have already held talks with the South Korean international about a move to White Hart Lane after it emerged that he would not be signing a new contact to stay with his current club in the German Bundesliga beyond summer 2014.
However Dortmund's interest has muddied the waters for Spurs who were confident of signing Son in a £10million deal when the transfer window opens for business.
Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has money to spend following the sale of Mario Gotze to Bayern Munich not to mention from their march to this season's Champions League final. And he will look to Son as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski who is also set to depart in a big-money move this summer.
Dortmund would have definite Champions League football on offer and allow Son to stay in Germany which could give them an advantage over Tottenham in the battle for his signature.
