Tottenham wouldn’t trade Harry Kane and Son Heung-min for anyone, claims Ryan Sessegnon

Tottenham Hotspur wing back Ryan Sessegnon insists he would not swap Harry Kane and son Heung-min for one of Liverpool’s top five.

Spurs’ star duo reunited again on Sunday to take his side to three points when Kane struck the opener and Son grabbed a double in the 3-1 win over Leicester.

Liverpool’s attacking options – Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz – are widely regarded as the best in the division but Sessegnon says he would prefer Kane and Son to be preferred over all.

Ahead of Spurs’ trip to Anfield on Saturday, when asked if he would swap, Sessegnon said: “No way, no way. The two players we have on the team are world class and we wouldn’t trade them for anyone.

“They can do special things on the ball and that showed again. Sonny assisted H again and the combination they’ve had since playing together is incredible.

“They’ve done it at the highest level for the last six or seven years and the numbers speak for themselves.”

Son was in particularly good form against Leicester, an early contender for May’s Goal of the Month with his second spectacular goal.

His brace gave him 19 league goals of the season – his all-time best – and he is in the running for the Golden Boot, just three goals behind Salah.

The South Korean may not get the recognition that other players in the league get and Sessegnon says he’s underrated.

“Yes, 100 percent. It’s hard to say why he’s underrated because his numbers are consistent season after season,” he said.

“I think it’s because he’s such a down to earth, normal guy, he’s not an arrogant person and he’s just really friendly with everyone. That’s probably why.”

Alongside Son and Kane, Spurs have another true elite player in Cristian Romero, who excelled against Leicester.

He was instrumental in the second goal as his superb tackle released Dejan Kulusevski down the right and Swede Son scored.

Romero is making a name for himself with his physical prowess and Sessegnon admits the 24-year-old Argentina international is no different in training.

“It’s fantastic. You see he gives us important challenges in every game and sometimes even gets us out of small troubles,” added Sessegnon.

“He’s so strong, so fast and a great player to have on the team.”

When asked if the challenges fly in during practice, he added: “Yes, every time.

“It’s not worrying, he times it so well. Playing against him in training isn’t ideal, but it’s good for us in our team.”
