Son Heung-min was named Tottenham Hotspur's best transfer of the last decade by U.S. sports network ESPN on Saturday.
ESPN ranked the best and worst signings by the big six clubs in the English Premier League -- Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham -- since the 2009-10 season.
Son moved from Bayer Leverkusen to Tottenham for a transfer fee of 22 million pounds in 2015. He has scored 75 goals in 203 appearances since then.
ESPN wrote that Son's "speed and finishing have made him a force to be reckoned with."
It added that he "signed as the most expensive Asian player ever, and if he were to be sold, he would easily double the record."
