Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham) was ranked in the top 3 in the transfer market value (ransom) among left wingers around the world.

Transfermarkt, a soccer transfer site, announced the market value ranking of the world’s most valuable left winger on the 19th (Korean time). Recent performance, team performance, age, etc. are considered for ranking selection. Due to the nature of the transfer market, younger players are more valuable. It is meaningful that 30-year-old Son Heung-min marked third place. Expanding the scope to the entire position, Son’s ranking is 22nd.

Son Heung-min is worth 75 million euros (101.7 billion won). He is thanks to the stellar performance he achieved last season. For the 2021-2022 season, he won the title of co-scorer with Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) for his 22 league goals. He is the first Asian player to top scorer in the Premier League. His explosive dribbling and sensational shooting are his strengths. The fact that he reached the top spot by using his feet freely also drew attention. The fact that Tottenham helped Spurs qualify for the Champions League (UCL) for the 2022-2023 season is also a plus factor.

The best left winger in the world is Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior (22). He is the main character who scored the winning goal in the UCL final of the 2021-2022 season. His ransom is 100 million euros (about 136 billion won). According to foreign media, Real Madrid are pushing for a four-year extension with Vinicius as well as a huge buyout clause to prevent other clubs from accessing them.

In second place is Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho, 22. After playing for Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga, he made his EPL debut last season. His dribbling and passing are excellent. Last season, he did not show as much performance as expected due to adapting to the EPL stage, but only the infinite possibilities are recognized. His market value is the same as Heung-Min Son 75 million euros.

In fourth place is Neymar (30, Paris Saint-Germain). Heung-Min Son, Sancho and Neymar recorded a transfer market value of 75 million euros side by side, but in the order of Sancho-Son Heung-Min-Nymar.

5-10: Rafael Reang (23, AC Milan), Jack Grealish (27, Manchester City), Sadio Mane (30, Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (28, Manchester City, more than 70 million euros), Luis Diaz (25, Liverpool, 65 million euros) and Ansu Fati (20, Barcelona, ​​60 million euros).
