Spending spree: Liverpool should sign up this £61m-rated Asian star right away

Liverpool have confirmed the signings of both Fabinho and Naby Keita so far this transfer window and fans in the Tavern are hoping that the club has finished there. 

If Liverpool can add to their squad this summer, there’s every chance they can push for the title next season. With the attacking trio up front, two excellent fullbacks and a bolstered midfield, Liverpool arguably boast the second best starting eleven in England behind only Manchester City.

Not content with being able to blow teams away going forward, Liverpool have now been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur forward, Heung Min Son according to German news outlet Sport 1.

The report states that both Manchester United and Arsenal have shown an interest in the South Korean international who is valued at £61 million by Spurs. The former Bayer Leverkusen man joined Spurs in 2015 and only has two-years left on his current deal. Moreover, the 25-year-old, who netted 18 goals in all competitions last year, is apparently keen to move to Liverpool as he looks to win some silverware.

While the price seems incredibly inflated for a player who would likely be on the bench, Liverpool should keep tabs on the Spurs man.

Son fits Liverpool’s system perfectly as he can play at a high tempo, has pace and as proven by his goal record, knows how to find the back of the net. Moreover, at only 25, he’s just not even entered his prime years.

If Liverpool can knock the price down to anywhere below £40 million, Son would be a great backup and who knows, he may even be needed to start if one of the front three goes down with an injury.
