Spurs flyer Heung-Min Son bagged his half century of goals for the club against Chelsea on Saturday, and wants to reach the full century.

The South Korean has been a revelation for the Lilywhites since his £22 million move from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen in 2015.

 

A fan favourite at the North London club, 'Sonny' initially made a slow start to the season, having competed in two tournaments for his country in the last few months. However, he now looks back to his best after a stunning solo goal against Chelsea.

Son picked the ball up just inside the Chelsea half, running down the line and cutting inside, beating two players before slotting it into the Chelsea goal to send the Spurs fans into delirium.

It was the third goal in a 3-1 win against their London rivals, which saw them climb above Chelsea into third place.

Son's 50th goal for the club typified what the wide forward is all about.

Technique, pace, drive and comfortable with both feet, the versatile attacker has been one of Mauricio Pochettino's star players in recent years, and is arguably the only player in the Spurs squad who can score that goal with regularity.

Lucas Moura has the same ability to go past players, however Son's end product is far better than the Brazilian's and is why the target of a century of goals for the North Londoners isn't out of the question.

Still only 26, Son is entering his peak for Spurs, and with 50 goals in only 153 appearances for the club, the 100 goal landmark is a realistic target.

"Many people at Spurs congratulated me for it," Son told Goal.

"I'm very grateful for that and now I'll try to score my 100th goal and more."

Son's ability has seen him linked with a big money move back to Germany and join Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, according to Calciomercato.

However, it's clear Son is loving life at Spurs and wants to remain at the club, highlighted by his personal ambitions for the team.

On his day, Son is one of the most feared forwards in European football.

Adored by the Spurs faithful, if he can reach the century of goals and help the side to silverware, he could even go down as a club legend.
