Your Tottenham digest on the morning of Friday, May 13.
Heung-Min Son reveals what Antonio Conte said to him after substitution
Heung-Min Son revealed what Tottenham manager Antonio Conte said to him after he was substituted in the 72nd minute against Arsenal in his post-match interview with SkySports. Son scored his 21st goal of the Premier League campaign and Spurs' third of the game just minutes into the second half.
Son closed the gap to Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League golden boot and is now just a single goal behind the Liverpool forward. The Spurs forward was visibly annoyed with his substitution and told SkySports what Conte said to him as he left the pitch: "He said we have an important game on Sunday, so it is no big deal. I am not angry, I am just disappointed because I came off."
Tottenham 'ahead of Arsenal' in race for Man City star
Tottenham are reportedly leading the race to sign Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling ahead of north London rivals Arsenal in the upcoming summer transfer window. Champions League football could be a major factor in which club Sterling could sign for should he decide not to negotiate a new contract to remain at the Etihad.
According to CBS, Tottenham are ahead of Arsenal in the pursuit for Sterling should the England international leave City this summer. Reports suggests Sterling will discuss his future after England's Nations League fixtures ahead of next season.
Martinez 'condition' revealed
With the future of Harry Kane still up for debate, the search for a new striker could be on the agenda this summer should the England captain decide to leave the club. Lautaro Martinez is a player that has consistently been linked with a move to north London, with the Express reporting that both Arsenal and Spurs hold an interest in the Argentine.
Reports in the striker's native Argentina suggest that Martinez is happy at the club and will not seek a move and will only switch clubs on one 'condition' this summer - if Inter force him to by opting to cash in while his stock is high. The Argentina international has scored 23 goals so far this season for Inter in all competitions, forming a dangerous partnership with Edin Dzeko in the wake of Romelu Lukaku's departure.
