Why Spurs Are Right To Award Star With Expected Brand-Spanking £150,000 Per Week Contract

The most underrated player in Europe? Whilst that won’t be easily settled, the stats don’t lie; Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min is in incredible form at the moment, taking over the mantle from the injured Harry Kane, of whom he has a higher win percentage when he's in the side (80% to 71%).

Since the beginning of November, the likeable Korean has slotted in 14 goals and been provider on six occasions. He’s already got 11 league goals for the season, taking him to within three of his highest tally for Tottenham, with a third of the season remaining.

What’s more impressive, Son was absent for a considerable amount of time to join up with the national side for the Asian Cup.

Although only signing a new contract last July - tying him down at Spurs until 2023 - the forward is set to be rewarded with a bumper new pay packet by the aspiring Lilywhites, stunned like most fans by his stepping up the plate.

His £110,000 per week salary will rise up to put him on par with teammate Dele Alli, who currently earns around £150,000, reports The Daily Mail, in what will be his second wage boost in less than 12 months.

Son has had another stunning week, completing the scoring in the 3-1 defeat of Leicester City and opening in the 3-0 win over Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, both in front of impressed Wembley spectators.

Tottenham are now on a four-game winning streak - each of which Son has scored in - one foot in the Champions League Quarter-Finals and well in the Premier League title race, five points behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool, and with the advantage of a game in hand on the former.

With the considerable injury list that has mounted up in recent weeks, Son’s form has been a blessing, but entirely expected for a player whose ability has consistently shone in his three-and-a-half years in the capital since moving from Bayer Leverkusen, and fully deserved off that salary to put him on par with some of Spurs’ top earners.
