9am Tottenham news LIVE: Son self-isolates over coronavirus, Forsberg transfer LATEST, Kane eyeing April return – The Sun

TOTTENHAM are preparing for a huge Premier League fixture against Wolves this weekend.

And in transfer news, Jose Mourinho wants to bring Emil Forsberg to North London from RB Leipzig – who beat Spurs in the Champions League last week.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane is expected to play before the end of the season, after receiving a huge injury boost – but Son Heung-min has isolated himself over coronavirus fears.

Follow all the latest news and developments from North London below…


    Frank Lampard has revealed that Chelsea contract talks with Tottenham target Willian are “ongoing” – as the Blues try to keep hold of the soon-to-be out-of-contract star.

    The 31-year-old Brazilian was able to speak to foreign clubs in January, with his Stamford Bridge deal set to end in June.

    Spurs are reportedly after the winger, who originally snubbed the North Londoners to sign for Chelsea in 2013.

    Chelsea are thought to have offered him a two-year deal, but Willian wants a three-year contract – and a rise in his £110,000-a-week wages.


    No game for Tottenham today, they're in action against Wolves tomorrow.

    Both teams are still in the hunt for Champions League football, four and five points behind Chelsea respectively.

    All eyes will be on Chelsea today for their trip to Bournemouth at 3pm UK time.

    The Blues can take a massive step clear of the chasing pack with victory today and a step closer to third-placed Leicester.


    After a disappointing result at Stamford Bridge at last time out, Spurs are looking to bounce back from two defeats on the spin when they host Wolves on Sunday lunch time.

    But in better news for the North Londoners, Harry Kane has returned to training after his hamstring injury.

    Jose Mourinho, speaking ahead of the club’s clash against Wolves on Sunday, said: “I would say he is a little bit ahead.

    “It gives me a hope of, instead of one or two matches, he might now play three, four or five.

    “He's doing what he can do at this stage but always with a good feeling.

    But in more worrying news, Son Heung-Min has been forced to self-isolate for two weeks on his return from South Korea over coronavirus fears.

    Mourinho said: “I think the normal advice comes from the authorities, comes from the government. I'm not going to make any comment, I'm nobody, I'm no specialist.

    “I just get the legal advice and what my club gets from authorities, and of course we follow everything.

    “That's why I'm saying that Sonny when he's back from Seoul we will have to follow the protocols and we are not going to have him immediately here.”

    Humble Toby Alderweireld also admitted he doesn't see himself as a star despite the reaction from admiring school children he visited on a community project with Spurs.

  • “I hope we will never have to go in this direction.

    “It will be difficult in any case to make a global ban because the situation is really different in many parts of the world.

    “But health of people is much more important than any football game and that’s why we have to look at the situation and hope that it will decrease rather than increase.

    “At the moment it looks like it is still increasing.

    “If games have to be postponed or played without spectators until it is over then we have to go through that.”


    FIFA President Gianni Infantino says the world governing body could step in to cancel next month’s England international friendlies because of the coronavirus.

    Infantino insisted that the football world should not “panic” over the global spread of the killer virus and that he expected this summer’s Euro 2020 to take place.

    But asked directly by SunSport if Fifa should intervene to call off the March friendly dates, including England’s Wembley games with Italy and Denmark, Infantino admitted: “I wouldn’t exclude anything at this moment…
