Liverpool are plotting an audacious bid for Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min.
This is according to one shocking story, which comes after rumours that the South Korean has decided he wants a new challenge. Son has been at Tottenham since 2015, but he reportedly wants to join a “bigger club.”
Real Madrid and PSG are both thought to be keen in the player, but Liverpool have surfaced as a surprise contender, just months after expressing interest in Harry Kane before to the Darwin Nunez move.
The Reds are keeping an eye on the issue and could make a move for the 30-year-old, whose contract ends in 2025, according to CaughtOffside.
Son last signed a new contract last year, but with Tottenham wanting to rebuild the entire squad, they may be willing to part ways with their No.7 if a suitable offer comes in, especially given their form this season.
The forward has only scored three league goals this season, all of which came in a single game against Leicester, when he came off the bench to complete a hat-trick.
However, given that Son is already 30, Tottenham may be persuaded to make a nice profit on him while they can.
In the past, the Lilywhites have passed up opportunities to sell valued assets like as Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, and Danny Rose all leaving for well below their peak value.
According to Sport1, PSG and Real Madrid are the frontrunners for the popular Spurs figure. Chairman Daniel Levy would almost certainly prefer to sell the player abroad unless Liverpool made an unbeatable offer.
Transfermarkt estimates Son’s worth at roughly £67.5 million.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder Jude Bellingham, with a deal now seeming more possible as Bayern Munich ruled themselves out of signing the Borussia Dortmund and England star.
It’s also been stated that they’re keeping an eye on Bayern Munich and Germany’s Jamal Musiala.
In other news, the Reds are reportedly interested in an MLS wonderkid and a striker called “the next Erling Haaland.”
