He played in 53 of Spurs’ 55 matches in all competitions last season.

Son scored twice during this summer’s World Cup, including one in South Korea’s shock win over Germany.

In 2017, he became the top Asian scorer in Premier League history, overtaking former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung.

Son finished his development at Hamburger SV, where he made his debut in the German Bundesliga in 2010.

In 2013, he moved to Bayer Leverkusen for a club record €10 million, and played for the club in the UEFA Europa League and UEFA Champions League.

Two years later, he signed for Tottenham for £22 million, becoming the most expensive Asian player in history. While at Tottenham, he became the top Asian goalscorer in Premier League history.

A full international since 2010, Son has represented South Korea at the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups and is South Korea’s joint highest scorer at the World Cup alongside Park Ji-sung and Ahn Jung-hwan with three goals.

He has also represented South Korea at the AFC Asian Cup in 2011 and 2015, helping them finish as runners-up in the latter tournament.
