Tottenham Hotspur have been in the market for a back up striker to Harry Kane for years, someone to pitch in with goals while he’s away, and to ease the burden on the England captain.
However, it now appears that Spurs have had the man they needed all along in the form of Heung Min Son.
A few times now, Sonny has stepped up to provide a huge chunk of Tottenham’s goals in the absence of their top scorer, and never has that been more pivotal than this past month.
Kane was given an expected return date of early March when he first picked up his ankle injury against Man United in January.
Despite leaving for the Asia Cup, Son still managed to return full of energy, scoring in every Tottenham game since.
In fact, Son’s goal scoring has been immense all season, with the South Korean being directly involved in a goal every 86.8 minutes.
That’s an assist or goal every game, with 16 strikes of his own, as well as a further nine as provider.
