Son Heung-Min’s scouting report from Rowley of Arsenal


Son Heung-Min’s profile in the year 2017

 Son Heung-Min’s career history until 2017

At first glance Son Heung-Min may look a bit expensive, but any club with some money to burn (e.g. Real Madrid, Man City), should buy snap him up, as he grows to be a world class poacher who in the future will easily repay the investment. An extremely fast 18 year old, Heung-Min, with the right training, can grow to be a devestating striker, which is shown in his scout report, as Steve Rowley compares him to world-class forward Robin Van Persie and gives him a potential rating of four stars, an incredible rating and although he hasn’t quite lived up to his potential in his future profile, you could easily turn him into one of the best strikers in the world with the right training and plenty of playing time. Although Song Heung-Min isn’t cheap, if you  do decide to buy him, he will be worth it.

Best Buy Rating: 7/10

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 26, 2011

      He’s very average in my saves, but then again you never know what he may turn into with the correct training and first team football.

  • comment avatar Alex December 28, 2011

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 28, 2011

      Sorry I can’t find him at all, must have to have the large database or a specific league loaded up?

    • comment avatar p January 1, 2012

  • comment avatar Tom B January 25, 2012

    Just started the sixth season with my everton team and he just moved to united from hsv for 49 million. Looks very good.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 25, 2012

      Now that is a statement at that price.

  • comment avatar Jorge Fernandes January 30, 2012

    Unlucky Son Heung-Min, He is definitely far from his true potential, I believe he can be as good as kadlec, maybe better, but playing for Hamburger, Betis, and Getafe such few games has destroyed his carrer.

  • comment avatar Stu February 6, 2012

    Very good Poacher material. Never personally signed him, but he sold for around £7m in third season, so he could be worth a punt at that price.

  • comment avatar Kieren February 10, 2012

    he had a release clause of 6 million on mine after the first season would be a fool not to snap him up

  • comment avatar David Warner February 22, 2012

    Got him on a free transfer in my 4th season of my Liverpool save. Played 3 games, hasn’t scored yet but has been running riot in the box. Nippy and tricky, and rated 4 stars by 4 20/20 scouts. What. A. Bargain.

    • comment avatar David Warner March 1, 2012

      Update: 17 games, 22 goals. Average match rating of 8.09.

      He’s keeping Kadlec out of my team! :P

      Darren, I think I will get you a screenshot for a future profile at the end of my current season (2015 – 2016), as his stats in your current future profile do not do him justice (at least, in my save) ;)

      • comment avatar Darren Smith March 1, 2012

        Would love to have an updated profile, I think this profile is one of the few I didn’t do myself to be honest but would update it if you a better future profile.
