Gary Neville believes “every team in the world” would sign Son Heung-min given the opportunity.

The Korean scored the winner for Tottenham Hotspur against Burnley on Monday.

It was the latest instance of the 28-year-old’s phenomenal form this season, with 10 goals and four assists in all competitions leaving Neville in awe.

“I think Son is so understated and he doesn't get the glitz of some of the other top players in the league,” Neville said on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.

“He is an absolutely amazing player Son, he is a brilliant player. It'd be a nightmare to play against him he makes all the right runs.

“You talk about Sterling regularly, we talk about Mane and Salah at Liverpool, he's right there with them. If he was at Liverpool or City he'd be doing what those lads are doing.

“When Son was out last season he was a huge miss. As I said before the game he doesn't get the credit.

“I think Jose Mourinho was asked a question last week about when does he become world class Son and Jose said he was already there.

“They're (Kane and Son) brilliant together, brilliant players and I think every team in the world would take Son. There isn't a team in Europe or in the Premier League that wouldn't take him.”

Jamie Carragher then suggested that Manchester City and Liverpool would look at Son should they ever lose Raheem Sterling, Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah.

Neville responded: “I absolutely agree and you said that if Mane or Salah was out for Liverpool and they could pick any player in the league it would be him (Son).”
