Tottenham legend Son Heung-min is not a striker… needs a new recruit

Teddy Sheringham, a former England and Premier League legend striker, said Son Heung-min cannot be a professional striker like Harry Kane and insisted that Tottenham Hotspur should recruit a new type 9 striker.

According to England’s EPL Index, Sheringham explained why he should recruit Ivan Toney (Brentford), claiming on the 22nd (Korea time), “Tottenham needs a real striker.”

According to 토토사이트 media, Sheringham said of Son’s role, “He is not a proper striker. He is a player who plays around a striker just like when he played with Kane,” adding, “Tottenham needs a striker. We cannot keep Son in that position.”

“I think Tony will fit Tottenham well. Maybe he can go anywhere between Chelsea, Arsenal or Tottenham, but personally, I would like to see Tottenham sign Tony. This is because he has the quality of a striker who is very important to any team,” he said. “Tony leads Brentford’s offense very well, and he always bothers Markman.”

Sheringham is a legendary English striker who is familiar to Korean fans as he played for Manchester United under Alex Ferguson. He also led the team’s treble in the 1998-99 season. He was also a legend of the club who played for Tottenham from 1992 to 1997, and also won the top scorer in the league from 2001 to 2003.

Sheringham gave serious advice to his former team Tottenham that he should use a proper striker, not Son Heung-min, for the striker position.

Son Heung-min has emerged as a club legend.

Since joining Tottenham in 2015, Son has devoted himself for nine years and has emerged as an indispensable club legend. He ranks fifth overall in Tottenham’s scoring (162 goals) and has made 400 appearances (408) for the 14th time in Tottenham’s history, rewriting the club’s history.

In the 2021-2022 season, he tied for the top scorer with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) with 23 goals in the league, becoming the first Asian player to win the title of top scorer in the Premier League.

This season, he was appointed captain by coach Ange Postecoglou and became the club’s first non-European captain to wear the armband. Son Heung-min, who has already been the captain of the Korean national soccer team since 2018, also captained Tottenham and united the Tottenham squad with his friendly leadership.

He has 17 goals and 10 assists in this season’s league. Driven by Son’s performance in scoring the most offensive points in his team, Tottenham, which was ranked eighth in the previous season, jumped three notches to finish the season in fifth place.

However, it was regrettable that when he played as a central striker, his performance deteriorated towards the second half of the season. Son Heung-min, who played as a one-top player early in the season, lost the center to Hishalisson in the second half and returned to the left winger, his position.

It is also the reason why Tottenham continues to insist on recruiting a No. 9 striker, unlike the early part of the season when there were expectations that Son Heung-min could replace him after Harry Kane left for Bayern Munich.

Tottenham attempt to recruit Tony as Kane replacement… to continue negotiations despite Brentford’s refusal

Tottenham is considering a number of strikers as Kane’s replacement, one of which is Tony. Tony is a striker who possesses excellent aerial competition skills and goal-scoring ability. He did not play many games this season due to punishment for illegal betting, but he still showed off his presence by starting 16 games out of 17 games and scoring four goals and two assists. He scored 20 goals in the league alone last season, ranking third after Erling Holan and Harry Kane.

However, Tottenham reportedly offered Brentford a transfer fee of 40 million pounds (70.1 billion won), but the offer was rejected. “Tottenham rejected the offer for Brentford star Ivan Toney who agreed to his personal terms,” England Football Transfer said. “Brentford rejected Tottenham’s offer for Toney who already agreed to his personal terms.”

According to media outlets, Tony verbally agreed with Tottenham on personal terms including wages, but Brentford rejected Tottenham’s offer of 40 million pounds (about 70.1 billion won). Brentford reportedly wants 65 million pounds (about 114 billion won).

Expectations are high that Tottenham will be able to maximize Son Heung-min’s utilization by recruiting Tony.
