Son Heung-min was on hand to welcome Tottenham’s pre-season squad to South Korea as they prepare to play two games in the country.
Spurs have jetted out to Asia for matches against Team K League and Sevilla next week, with the new Premier League season set to kick off in under a month.
The Tottenham squad arrived at Incheon International Airport, west of Seoul, on Sunday, with a video on the club’s social channels showing Son embracing first team stars like Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris with a ‘Welcome to Seoul’ card.
The touring squad includes new signings Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Richarlison, but there is no space for loan arrival Clement Lenglet as he does not have the necessary documentation needed to travel to Korea.
Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp, both of whom were absent with injuries towards the back end of last season, have also been included, while Bryan Gil and Pape Matar Sarr will have the opportunity to impress manager Antonio Conte after their respective loan stints with Valencia and Metz and respectively.
Giovani Lo Celso, Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon and Harry Winks have stayed in north London, with Spurs hopeful of sealing their exits during this transfer window.
While they have been active this summer, Tottenham are still trying to tie up a few deals before the deadline.
Listen now to Oh What A Night, 90min’s Tottenham Hotspur podcast! This week, Sean Walsh andJude Summerfield discuss Spurs’ summer transfer window so far and what their new signings will bring to the team.
90min revealed in late May that Spurs are close to signing Djed Spece – who impressed on loan at Nottingham Forest last season – from Middlesbrough, but they have not been able to wrap up a deal in time for South Korea tour.
