Romano has claimed that negotiations have been going on since December, and all parties are now close to reaching an agreement.
Son has established himself as one of the finest attacking midfielders in the Premier League, and he is a precious asset for the club.
He scored 20 goals and provided 15 assists in all competitions last season.
SL View – Spurs must sort out Kane’s future
Harry Kane has reportedly spoken to club chairman Daniel Levy and told him that he wants to leave the club this summer.
The England skipper doesn’t want to spend another year without Champions League football and feels the time is right for him to ply his trade elsewhere.
At the same time, he has a long-term contract at the club, and Spurs are expected to command a fee in the region of £150 million for their talisman.
Son’s decision to stay with Spurs could persuade Kane to follow suit, although he may want reassurances over the club’s transfer business this summer.
It has also been reported that Tottenham won’t entertain any swap deal moves at the moment, which makes it difficult for potential suitors to sign Kane.
