Son Heung Min is the best finishing striker in Europe

Son Heung Min is Europe’s best finishers, while the two elders Ronaldo and Messi may be ashamed to review their own results.

Son Heung Min is having a wonderful start to the season with Tottenham in the Premier League. The Korean striker has 11 goals and 4 assists in the 2020/21 Premier League after only 14 appearances. Currently, Tottenham’s No. 7 is ranked second in the list of “Top Scorer” with 2 goals less than Liverpool’s leader Mo Salah (13 goals).

One point worth noting is that Mourinho’s Tottenham is not an aggressive team. Therefore, Son Heung Min has only released 25 finishes after 14 matches, equivalent to an average of less than 2 times / game. Therefore, the Korean striker’s 11-goal record is even more valuable.

According to statistics, Son Heung Min is the player capable of converting the number of shots into the best goals in Europe’s top 5 leagues (for players with 9 or more goals) with the ratio 44% (25 shots, 11 goals).

To make it clearer, let’s also look at Mo Salah’s goal conversion rate. The Egyptian striker launched 47 shots, but only scored 13 goals, equivalent to 27.66%, which means that the performance is far behind Son Heung Min.

Or like Jamie Vardy, a player with the same number of goals as Son Heung Min, has a 31.4% rate, the fourth best in Europe’s top five leagues.

Two players with records close to Son Heung Min are Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan). Both have 34% conversion rates of shots into goals, still less than the Korean striker about 10%. Young talent Erling Haaland (Dortmund) is closely behind with a 33% record.

Two contemporary football superstars, Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) and Leo Messi (Barcelona), both have quite bad achievements. The Portuguese superstar has 51 shots in just 10 games and has 12 goals, equivalent to a conversion rate of 23.5%.

The Barcelona captain did not even have 9 goals to be considered in this list. Currently, Messi has only 7 goals in La Liga after 85 finishes, which means the conversion rate is only 8.23%. This explains why Barcelona is struggling in La Liga when the team’s brightest star is forgetting to score.

Coming back to Son Heung Min, this ratio shows that the Korean striker is in extremely high scoring form. Not only that, Tottenham’s No. 7 also likes to score goals against big teams. MU, Man City, Liverpool or Arsenal are all victims of Son Heung Min this season. If you continue to promote, the Korean striker will soon turn to a new page of his career.

Son Heung Min scored at Tottenham, given a new contract

Son Heung Min is in brilliant form in the Premier League and is about to receive a big bonus from Tottenham with a new contract, a new salary.

Son Heung Min is playing increasingly sublimated in the Tottenham shirt. The South Korean striker took all the individual titles awarded by the club last season and continued to shine in the first few rounds of the Premier League.

After the first 5 rounds, Son Heung Min and Calvert Lewin (Everton) are “top scorer” in the Premier League with 7 goals. Tottenham’s No. 7 had a poker shot (scored 4 goals) against Southampton, contributed 2 goals in the 6-1 great win over MU and had 1 goal against West Ham in the last round. In addition, Son Heung Min also has 2 assists in the Premier League.

Thus, the Korean striker has an average record of scoring or assisting 1.8 times / match in the Premier League. This is a desirable number for any player playing in the tournament known as the toughest on the planet.

However, the brilliant form of Son Heung Min made the Tottenham leadership worried because the contract of both sides was only valid for 2 years when this season ended. Currently, the South Korean striker is valued at £ 67.5 million (according to Transfermarkt) and could increase further in the near future. However, that also did not prevent the big players’ interest in Tottenham’s No. 7.

Remember, Son Heung Min is not just valuable on the pitch. According to the latest statistics, the number of Tottenham fans in Korea has surpassed MU and possibly Asia in the coming time thanks to the presence of the striker born in 1992. This is a “fertile” land that All the big Europeans wanted to gain in order to increase their reputation and market share.

To avoid being pushed into a passive position in the event of having to sit at the negotiating table, Tottenham president Daniel Levy plans to keep the Korean striker. According to his Telegraph, “Rooster” is negotiating a contract extension with Son Heung Min with a new salary.

Currently the number of years and salary in the draft contract has not been disclosed, but it will almost certainly not be less than £ 150,000 / week. Song Heung Min is enjoying a salary of £ 110,000 / week at Tottenham.

This move by Daniel Levy shows that the England boss of Tottenham is afraid of appearing “second Eriksen”. The Danish midfielder was once one of the club’s most expensive players, but Tottenham had to sell quickly because he did not want to extend when the contract was only 1 year.

However, if he received a new salary of £ 150,000 / week, although very high for an Asian player, Son Heung Min could not be in the top of the highest-paid star in the Premier League. Son’s salary is only in the form of “gentle village” compared to other superstars. In the top 10 highest-paid players in the Premier League, according to The Sun’s statistics, salaries are from £ 220,000 / week or more. The highest is now Aubameyang at £ 350,000 / week with extra fees at Arsenal.
