Chelsea and Arsenal rebuffed in transfer race

heungminson.jpgWe’ve been hearing stories of South Korean striker Heung Min-Son in the Football Transfer Tavern of late, and how he has been attracting interest from top sides in England, although sources at sportinglife have revealed Hamburg do not want to let him go.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been credited with an interest in the striker over the past few months, with many expecting a summer battle for his signature.

However, Hamburg director of sport Frank Arnesen has warned the Premier League big boys to stay away from his star man.

Son bagged a brace at the weekend to take his tally for the season to 11 goals in 28 appearances.

“Son, with his 20 years, is one of the players we would really like to keep hold of,” he told NDR television.

“We are willing to push ourselves to our pain barrier for him.”

Arnesen revealed he hoped contract talks would advance soon as he is well aware of the interest from Europe’s top clubs, although he also confirmed there had been no official contact as of yet.

“He still has a year to go on his contract and we haven’t had any offers from other clubs,” said Arnsesen

“We are at a good stage with him and his contract extension so I am positive that we will extend with him for the long-term.

“We have to ensure that we extend his contract as quickly as possible so that he can be settled.”

Will the London duo return for the South Korean this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
