Son Heung-min of Tottenham. The 25-year-old striker is a fantastic, improving player that has made a splash in the Premier League since arriving from Leverkusen in 2015. Not a full-time starter, he's got 47 goals in 139 matches for the club, scoring 21 in 2016-17 and 18 goals last season. And he's no poacher. He can create for himself, has fine speed and can finish from the toughest of angles. He's a potential breakout star this summer.
