Tottenham Hotspur should brace themselves this summer, with Heung-min Son having reached new heights for the club.
The South Korean attacker played a huge role in Spurs’ stunning progression to the Champions League semi-finals, scoring a quick-fire brace in a whirlwind opening 20 minutes against Manchester City on Thursday.
The aggregate scoreline was 4-4 but it’s Spurs who will face Ajax in the last four courtesy of the away goals rule.
Many Spurs fans will have feared the worst when Raheem Sterling opened the scoring inside five minutes.
But Son was on hand to score twice to give the visitors an unlikely lead.
Madness ensued but in the end it was Spurs who go through, and Son came in for many plaudits after the game.
It was only the latest brilliant performance of many this season from the former Bayer Leverkusen star, who will surely become a marked man this summer.
Son – signed for a reported £22 million in 2015 (The Guardian) is now up to 20 goals for the season and he also has seven assists.
They are fantastic numbers considering his exerts at last summer’s World Cup, the Asian Games and the Asia Cup in January.
It is truly remarkable to see such a consistently high level of performance from Son given how fatigued he must be.
A case can surely been made for him to be placed in the world-class bracket now, and it would be unsurprising to see some of Europe’s elite clubs testing the waters for an amazing professional this summer.
There are very few teams Son would not get into now, so Tottenham should brace themselves.
Thankfully for Spurs fans it would seem that Son is very settled in north London, and he appears to love the club as much as he is adored by those that support it.
