Forget Dembele: This Tottenham player is seriously under-appreciated at the club

The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a few major signings this summer. The Lilywhites are on a roll at the moment, with Mauricio Pochettino clearly improving his team year-on-year.

Their squad is filled with talent, and some are given more respect than others. Over the years, Mousa Dembele has been seen as the unsung hero of the team. Rarely has he scored or assisted, and more often than not, he’d finish games with a fairly average 6/10 or 7/10 rating.

However, that’s changed over the last year or two – with most now recognising the Belgian’s influence, including Mauricio Pochettino.

Now, then, our landlord thinks that South Korean attacker Son Heung-min is the most undervalued member of the squad – and it’s fairly easy to see why.

If Tottenham were to replace one of their main attackers, you’d expect Son to be first in line to be dropped, and that’s a shame. His stats match up with most of his teammates last season, and you could even argue that he was more effective than both Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen last term.

Furthermore, he also scored very important goals, and he clearly has a knack for winning games. That’s a natural skill that simply can’t be taught.

Despite his influence, though, he started fewer games than the likes of Dele and Eriksen last term – and that begs the question, why?

Clearly, based on results, he’s up with the best players at the club, and it’s about time that people start to recognize that.

Son’s no longer just an option for Pochettino – he has turned into one of their best players.
