The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been waking up to some superb news this morning. According to the Daily Mirror, Jurgen Klopp could be set to make a shock bid for Tottenham’s tricky Korean winger, Heung-Min Son.
Reports: Liverpool and Manchester United are both considering a move for Tottenham star Heung-min Son.

Whilst the Spurs fans in the Tavern are far from thrilled with this news, it would be a brilliant coup for the Anfield club to sign Son who can be used virtually anywhere across the club’s front line. Son’s ability to add goals from the wing has been pivotal for Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the last three seasons and if he were to bring that to Liverpool it would create serious selection problems for Klopp.
There are a few issues with this deal though. One being that no sane Tottenham fan would be okay with seeing Son sold to Liverpool and the other being that the Korean winger could have to give up two years of his career to complete mandatory military service for his country. The only way Son could worm his way out of having to join his country’s military is if can help South Korea win the Asia Cup next summer with his country.

Good back up for Mane.

The mood among the Liverpool fans is that Son would be a class signing and if the opportunity arose they should jump on it.
