BREAKING NEWS: Totteham has successfully signed a player from south Korean

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have both been linked with a move to sign Edmond Tapsoba, and Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Spurs’ interest is ‘very strong’.

The Gunners and their fierce North London rivals are both keen to sign a new defender this summer. Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham may even need two, and they have been linked with plenty of names.

Bayer Leverkusen star Tapsoba is one of them, and Romano, speaking on his YouTube channel, has asked Spurs fans to ‘keep an eye’ on him ahead of a potential move this summer.

Fabrizio Romano says Tottenham want to sign Arsenal target Edmond Tapsoba
This is a very important window for both Arsenal and Tottenham for different reasons.

The Gunners are hoping to mount another title charge after coming ever so close to winning the Premier League last season, while Spurs are beginning a new era under Postecoglou.

Both clubs are on the market for a new centre-back – Arsenal only need a backup but the other North London side could do with a big upgrade on the likes of Eric Dier and Ben Davies.

Edmond Tapsoba could be that player for Tottenham and Romano has claimed that Spurs have a ‘strong’ interest in him. Arsenal, who also like him, think he’s too expensive.

After claiming Arsenal have Jurrien Timber and Mohamed Simakan on their shortlist, Romano said: “This list includes Edmond Tapsoba, a player always appreciated by Arsenal but not a priority this summer because I’m told he’s too expensive.

“Keep an eye on Tottenham for Tapsoba because he’s one of the players they’re following since a long time. Both Arsenal and Tottenham sent their scouts to follow Tapsoba.

“Tottenham are very strong on him, from what I’m told.”

Edmond Tapsoba is a fantastic defender and it is no surprise that Tottenham want to sign him.

The 24-year-old has been at Bayer Leverkusen for two-and-a-half years now and he has been magnificent for them. He is among the most impressive defenders in the Bundesliga, and everyone who has seen him play knows how good he is.

Bundesliga’s official website describes him as a “powerful and super-quick defender” with “frightening heading abilities,” and they are spot on.

He would be a brilliant signing for Spurs this summer, but whether Daniel Levy would be prepared to spend big on him in the coming weeks remains to be seen.

Son Heung-min, Klinsmann rally behind Korean footballer arrested in China

Korea captain Son Heung-min and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann rallied behind Son Jun-ho on Monday, a day after news broke that Chinese authorities had formally arrested the Shandong Taishan midfielder.

“It’s so heartbreaking, we don’t know what’s going on,” Son Heung-min told reporters during a press conference at Daejeon World Cup Stadium in Daejeon. “We used to be in touch all the time but now there’s no answer even if I send a text message.  

“The only thing we can do is pray for Jun-ho. I hope he can rejoin the team as soon as possible.”

Son Jun-ho was detained on May 12 at an airport in Shanghai in what China has called a bribery investigation. Under Chinese law, police can detain suspects for up to 37 days before a prosecutor approves an arrest.

Now that he has been formally arrested, the investigation process can take one to two months, according to reports. He can be held for the duration of that investigation.

The arrest comes amid a crackdown on match-fixing in Chinese football, although the exact details leading to Son’s arrest have not been revealed. Son’s local agent in China was also detained earlier this month, according to the JoongAng Ilbo. He is also being held on bribery charges.

Son, 31, has played for Shandong since 2021 when the club went on to win the Chinese Football League. He has 20 caps for Korea, including appearing at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

He was included in the squad for friendlies against Peru and El Salvador by Klinsmann as a show of solidarity.

“”We all feel for Jun-ho,” Klinsmann said on Monday. “We all pray for him and his family that his situation gets resolved as quickly as possible. We hope that we get him back as soon as possible.”
