Heung-Min Son has grown into a real favourite with Tottenham supporters since he moved to North London and he’s continued to grow during the last year.
Spurs signed the attacker for £22million (BBC) from Bayer Leverkusen back in 2015 and he’s turned out to be incredible value for money.
Peter Crouch predicted at the beginning of the season that the South Korea international would keep getting better, something that fortunately for the team has come true.
“I want to stress the importance of Son Heung-Min. He is a top player, one of the best forwards in Europe and I think he will be even better again this season,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail (9 August, 2019).
Son has scored 16 goals in just 32 appearances before his injury setback, as well as chipping in with nine assists too.
His previous best goalscoring season for Spurs was the 21 he managed back in the 2016/17 campaign and he was on course to smash that before his arm injury hit at the back end of February.
The 27-year-old did step into the role though as talisman when Harry Kane suffered an injury at the turn of the year and is the man that continued to dig Jose Mourinho’s team out of trouble.
He’s a versatile attacker that can play as a winger or a striker and he continues to be a serious goal threat regardless of his position on the pitch.
Spurs do have a player at the peak of his powers in Son and there is no doubt he’s continued to catapult himself to be one of the best attackers around.
