Many Liverpool fans have called for the Reds to sign South Korea winger Heung-min Son, with some alluding to footage from the end of his country’s game against Brazil on Tuesday.
A clip of the 27-year-old exchanging warm greetings with Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino and swapping shirts with Reds midfielder Fabinho after the match in Abu Dhabi was shared by Liverpool fan @Sennesation on Twitter.
The South Korean has posted an impressive goal return despite his club’s struggles, with Spurs 14th in the Premier League and winless in their last five league matches, a run which includes a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.
Do you see Liverpool spending big money in 2020?
Son’s return of eight goals from 1,063 minutes this season works out at one goal every 132.88 minutes, not far behind Liverpool winger Sadio Mane’s 11 goals in 1,357 minutes (one per 123.36 minutes) and better than Mohamed Salah’s nine in 1,1516 minutes (one per 168.44 minutes).
These Reds fans on Twitter have called on the club to raid Tottenham for the 27-year-old in January:

Can we sign Son in January while they are in disarray please? Ta. @LFC

In all seriousness, as a couple Spurs fans have said, Son won't work under Mourinho so I'd be all over that deal. Would be absolutely perfect for us.

Would love Son at Liverpool only if we can get him January 2020. He’s exactly what we need. FSG rarely buy players over 27/28, but if we want to win trophies a signing like this could be the difference.

We have to raid them for Son now. LFC do your thing

We should steam in with a cheeky bid for Son in January. Would be a great addition to our front line options, and his game is perfectly suited to Klopps style of play. #LFC

Go get Heung-Min Son now @LFC
