Saudi Arabian club are targeting Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min according to the latest report.
CBS reporter Ben Jacobs has claimed that the South Korean is a Saudi target for next year and they have already started their laying the groundwork for it.
Son had his worst season for Tottenham since joining the club in 2015, finishing the season with 10 goals and 6 assists.
His current contract expires in 2025 which would suggest that Levy could be open to cashing in on him if he receives a good enough bid.
However, it is unlikely that he will be sold this year with Jacobs suggesting that next season could be his last at Spurs as Saudi are working on a deal for next year.
“Can also reveal Tottenham’s Son Heung-min is a Saudi target for 2024 and legwork already underway. One to keep an eye on.”

Saudi Arabia has recently been spending big money to lure some of the biggest names in football to the country.
Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Al-Nassr on a £160m per year contract making him the world’s most highly paid player.
Earlier today Al-Ittihad signed Karim Benzema from Real Madrid while Al-Hilal are linked with Hugo Lloris.
Other big names including Lionel Messi, Luka Modric, N’golo Kante, Sergio Ramos, and Ilkay Gundogan are all some of players recently linked with a move to the country as Saudi Arabia plans on making their league amongst the top 10 in the world.
While Son’s departure from Tottenham this summer seems unlikely, a potential exit next season cannot be ruled out entirely.
