Heung-Min Son has been listed as a potential transfer target to a number of top European clubs, with Liverpool and Tottenham both reportedly interested in the talented Korean.

The Hamburg star has impressed with his thrilling displays and would be a great addition to the Premier League.

Here we look at his career, his attributes and what he will bring to the team he joins in the summer.

Career summary

Heung-Min Son is the product of the famous Seoul Academy, that is responsible for some of the best talents to come out of South Korea. He moved to Hamburg at the age of 16 and rose through the ranks before establishing himself in the first team in the current season. 

He especially impressed with his performances against defending champions Dortumnd in both the games. Son has also featured 12 times for his country which is impressive given he is only 20-years-old.


Attributes

Son is over six foot tall and is comfortable using both feet. He is mostly used as a second striker by Hamburg but can effectively play anywhere in the final third. He has incredible technique and dribbling ability and is a nuisance for opposition defenders. 

He also possesses incredible energy and good pace, which are great attributes for a striker. His composure in front of the goal isn’t that great yet and it needs to improve if he is to become a truly world-class player.  

Possible destination:

Move to clubs within the Bundesliga is a possibility but Son could be on his way to the Premier League. Both Tottenham and Liverpool have struggled with numbers in the attacking position and the Korean could be a great addition to both those clubs.
