With Hugo Lloris out of the first-team picture and Harry Kane leaving for Bayern Munich, the South Korea skipper was bestowed with the armband this summer by Ange Postecoglou.
Son failed to hit his previous heights in the 2022-23 season, but he rediscovered his goalscoring touch with a hat-trick in a 5-2 win over Burnley before the international break.
The 31-year-old has failed to register a goal or assist in Spurs' other four Premier League matches so far this season, but his efforts have been crucial in Tottenham's bright start to the campaign.
Son only penned a contract extension back in 2021, and those terms will not expire until the end of the 2024-25 season, but 90min claims that the club want to prolong his stay.
Tottenham are supposedly optimistic of agreeing a new long-term deal with the attacker by Christmas, but in the best-case scenario, a renewal could be wrapped up in a number of weeks.
The Lilywhites apparently had intentions of extending Son's deal earlier this year, but the club wanted to see how well the attacker got on with Postecoglou before making a firm decision.
However, with Son and Postecoglou's relationship blossoming, Tottenham have quickly accelerated contract talks with their captain, and there should not be any major roadblocks on the player's side.
Postecoglou lavished praise on the former Bayer Leverkusen man during a recent fans' forum, while also reserving special praise for Cristian Romero and James Maddison for taking on the duties of vice-captains.
