According to a poll conducted by Opinion Stage, 90% of Tottenham Hotspur supporters who participated believe forward Heung-Min Son is worthy of a new £100,000-per-week contract at the club.
The South Korea international joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, and over the past two seasons he has established himself as one of the club’s best players with 26 goals in his last 63 league games.
Son joined on an original five-year deal, meaning that at the end of the current campaign he will only two years left thus prompting Spurs to look into offering him a contract extension.
A recent report in Sky Sports claimed talks over a new contract were set to take place in the coming weeks, while Spotrac label his current earnings at £85,000-per-week which is near Tottenham’s top salary earners.
The North London club seemingly have wage cap at £100,000, with only Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane receiving such a figure, yet 90% of supporters who participated in a poll believe Son should join the 100 club.
Son became Asia’s most expensive player upon his transfer to Spurs, and the 25-year-old only seems to get better and better with each passing month in North London.
In his last five games in all competitions, he has recorded an impressive seven goals and one assist as the club consolidate themselves in the top four and seek their first trophy since the 2007/08 season.
Son may be overshadowed somewhat by the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, yet he is proving to be a valuable asset for Mauricio Pochettinos’ side and his attitude is first class.
A new bumper deal would be a just reward for his efforts, and making it known he is valued as one of the club’s leading players could see him reach an even higher level in the coming years.
