In an interview with the Premier League Season Review (24/05/22 at 3:55 PM), Ian Wright revealed he is puzzled as to why Spurs forward Son Heung-min is never linked with other clubs.
Son has lit up the Premier League this year, with the South Korean netting 23 goals and recording nine assists to achieve his most productive year to date (TransferMarkt).
Son’s goalscoring heroics also saw him crowned with the Golden Boot, becoming the first Asian player to do so in the top-flight of English football (Tottenham Hotspur).
With no penalty goals in his tally (TransferMarkt) and whilst competing against prolific players like Mohamed Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo, and teammate Harry Kane, Son’s achievement speaks for itself.
Wright, a former fan-favourite at Arsenal, was full of praise for Son but admitted he was confused as to why the 29-year-old had not been linked with a move away from North London at any point.
He said: “I am delighted that he has won it because he doesn’t get linked (away from the club) and it’s strange.
“He’s got pace. He finishes off both feet. He works back and can do everything. Son can get the ball in his own half and run through the whole team.
“I can’t understand how he doesn’t get linked with more teams? But what I am pleased for him is that he has something to show for being a top player in this league.”
With Son penning a new contract with Spurs at the beginning of the season which runs until 2025 (Sky Sports), it is not unfeasible to imagine that he will end his career at Spurs.

Spurs fans will know how lucky we are to have a player of Sonny’s calibre who loves the club as much as he does. He delivers for us in the moments we need him most and it is fitting to see him winning accolades.
He will surely go down as a club legend whatever happens between now and 2025, but here’s hoping that the next three years will be filled with silverware.
