Son Heung-min (born 8 July 1992) is a South Korean professional footballer who plays as a winger or a forward for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the South Korea national team.
On 28 August 2015, Son joined Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur for £22 million (€30 million) on a five-year contract, subject to work permit and international clearance. Upon his signing, he became the most expensive Asian player in football history. The record had been held since 2001 by Japanese Hidetoshi Nakata, who transferred from Roma to Parma for €25 million
Son is known as a versatile attacker due to his ability to use both feet equally well, and his willingness to play numerous positions on the attacking half; although he often played the role of a second striker with Hamburg, he can also play as a winger, an attacking midfielder or even as a striker. Son has confirmed this, saying, “I don’t care where I play. The main thing is I’m in the game. I can play as a second striker or behind. What the coach says, I’ll do. I don’t have a favorite position. I’ll be anywhere and always on the throttle.” Other strengths of Son include his explosive pace, dribbling abilities, composure in front of goal, and hard-working nature.
