Tottenham Opinion – Spurs’ new contract for Heung-min Son is a no-brainer
According to a report in Daily Mail, South Korean star Heung-min Son is set for a second pay rise at Tottenham inside 12 months after getting one. It is basically a reward for a fantastic season, in which he has been sensational, to say the least.
The attacker only signed a five-year contract in July of 2018, but the Spurs hierarchy are ready to offer him improved terms before the start of next season.
As per the report, talks are expected to get underway in the summer as there is a desire from the club to cement the player’s position as one of the key men under Mauricio Pochettino.
Here’s why Tottenham offering him a new deal is a no-brainer:
Son is one of the vital players in the team
Starting his Spurs career as a winger, Heung-min Son has transformed himself into a ruthless central attacker. Alongside Harry Kane as a support striker, the South Korean has flourished this season and taken his game to a whole new level.
Despite the fact that he represented his nation in the 2018 World Cup in the summer and also in the AFC Asian Cup last month, the 26-year-old has scored 16 goals in 23 games in all competitions, which is more than a decent return.
Taking stats into account, he has attempted 1.9 shots, made one key pass per game. The dribble rate of 1.5 is pretty good, considering he is playing more centrally when defenders are around. His pace, direct running with the ball and stretching the defence are his main strengths.
Furthermore, the finishing of the chance in and around the box is top-class. He has missed only three big chance in the league so far this season, which reiterates the above-mentioned point. (Sofascore)
Tottenham are on the up despite not spending a penny in the previous two transfer windows. Pochettino has developed a happy knack of bringing the best out of the squad he has. Heung-min Son is one of those players who has developed in the right way and is now becoming a pivotal player in the team.
