As the English Premier League (EPL) top scorer cannot be reproduced, Son Heung-min’s position in Tottenham Hotspur is narrowing enough that a replacement is being discussed.
England’s ‘HITC’ recommended a player to Tottenham on the 16th (Korean time), saying, “He is a perfect 25-year-old player for Tottenham. He is in the same position as Son Heung-min a few years ago.” This is Harvey Barnes, who is currently in charge of Leicester City’s left flank attack.
The reason ‘HITC’ recommended Barnes to Tottenham is clear. This is because of Son Heung-min’s sluggish appearance this season. Son Heung-min only recorded 8 goals and 3 assists in 30 games this season due to accumulated fatigue and the aftermath of facial fractures and injuries. He scored only 4 goals in the EPL. There is a difference from scoring 9 goals in the EPL in a similar period last season.
Since he did not appear as the top scorer in the EPL with 23 goals, he started talking about Son Heung-min’s downward trend. ‘HITC’ said, “Son Heung-min스포츠토토 shows a downward trend. Barnes can be a perfect substitute for Son Heung-min.” “Barnes is currently scoring 8 goals in the EPL, and several teams are interested. One of them is Tottenham.” It was said that it was caught on Tottenham’s radar net.
‘HITC’ added, “Barnes is very fast like Son Heung-min and likes to penetrate the space behind the defense. He constantly threatens with his two feet and finds goals,” adding that his playing style is similar to Son Heung-min.
“When Barnes comes to Tottenham, he will work perfectly with Harry Kane.
At the same time, ‘HITC’ recruited Barnes, saying, “Son Heung-min has been a perfect fit for Kane for several years, but it is time for Tottenham to consider a replacement. If Barnes continues to develop, he will be the player who succeeds Son Heung-min in the next era of Tottenham.” He argued that he should replace Son Heung-min.
Son Heung-min has a contract with Tottenham until June 2025. However, the atmosphere within Tottenham is flowing unusually, with transfer rumors being discussed. ‘Cut Offside’ said, “If Bayern Munich aims for Son Heung-min in the summer, they will be able to sign him for 35 million pounds (approximately 54.2 billion won).”
