Liverpool €20m offer for young Hamburg forward may not be enough
20-year old forward Son Heung-Min has been one of the brightest sparks for German club Hamburg this term. The South Korean has put in some scintillating performances since the start of the season and has netted an impressive 5 goals in 12 games so far.
According to reports in the German media, the young superstar’s performances have not gone unnoticed, with Premier League giants Liverpool seemingly interested in signing him.
Club star Rafael Van Der Vaart, however, wants the player to stay at Hamburg and was quoted in the press as having said, “Son must continue to play here. Of course it is tempting when a club like Liverpool enquires with a 20 million euro offer. But here he has the chance of playing regularly. He has become a very important player for us.”
Liverpool are looking to add more forwards to their squad and a move for young Son would fall perfectly in line with their policy of recruiting young players. However, it remains to be seen what asking price Hamburg set for their starlet and whether Liverpool have the financial muscle to meet it, especially amidst interest from rival clubs such as Arsenal, who have also been touted to make a move for the player.
