Heung-Min Son deserves to be crowned Player of the Season and would break multiple records at Liverpool and Manchester City if he joined the Premier League giants.
The Tottenham forward has been in fine form in the last few months as Antonio Conte’s side have kickstarted their Champions League charge.
Since the beginning of March, Son has scored ten goals, including a hat-trick against Aston Villa, as well as setting up two goals in the Premier League.
Most recently, the 29-year-old scored against high-flying Liverpool, denting the Reds’ title chances thanks to a well worked move involving Ryan Sessegnon and Harry Kane.
And Son’s performance in his side’s 1-1 draw earned the admiration of talkSPORT’s Gabby Agbonlahor.
When discussing Tottenham’s draw with Liverpool on talkSPORT Breakfast this week, the former Aston Villa striker brought up just how impressed he was by the no. 7, not just in the game but across the last few months.
“Son’s in great form.” Agbonlahor began.
“We talk about best players in the Premier League, I’m going to go with Son being player of the season for me in front of Salah.

“He’s outstanding, left foot, right foot, he’s scoring screamers that you wouldn’t even attempt with your weaker foot.”
The South Korea international has scored 21 times this season compared to Salah’s 30, with the latter playing six more games. However, Agbonlahor still believes he pips the Egyptian to being the best performer in the league this season.
In addition to this, the ex-Aston Villa man thinks that if Son had been playing for one of the Premier League’s top two this season like Salah, he would’ve achieved plenty of unprecedented feats.
“If he was in Liverpool or Man[chester] City’s team he’d be getting all sorts of records and goals.”
