Arsenal are keeping a close eye on the South Korean striker Son Heung-Min who plays for the German Bundesliga side Hamburg. The 20-year old is a goal poacher whose skills have led to him being nicknamed `Korean Muller` by his team mates after the legendary German striker Gerd Muller, whose long standing record of 85 goals in a calendar year is currently under threat by Lionel Messi.
Son joined Hamburg as an academy player in 2008 and quickly impressed but his early progress was held back by a few injuries. In the 2011-12 pre-season, the young striker scored 18 goals in nine games, then two in three league games before injuring his ankle. This season, Hamburg manager Thorsten Frink has given him the opportunity to show what he can do, and he has responded by scoring six goals in his 12 league games.
