Heung-Min Son

According to Mirror Football and the Daily Star, Emre Can could soon find himself joined at Anfield by Bayer Leverkusen team-mate Heung-Min Son.

The 21 year-old forward was being tracked by Liverpool last summer after claiming twelve goals and two assists in 33 Bundesliga outings during his final campaign with Hamburg SV, but opted for a €10million switch to the Bay Arena instead.

Having since gone on to bag twelve goals and seven assists for the fourth-place Bundesliga side however, the Reds are reportedly prepared to return to their former target in a bid to improve their attacking cast ahead of next season.

Indeed, capable of playing on either flank or as an out-and-out striker, the 23-cap South Korea international would certainly address Liverpool’s limited quality out wide and the need for an understudy to prolific striking duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

Famed for his mixture of pace, creativity, work-rate and proficiency, Heung-Min Son would undoubtedly be a good fit for the Reds’ breakneck-speed attacking play.

The South Korean’s £12million price-tag is well within Liverpool’s financial reach too, but his relentless progress over the last two seasons has drawn attention from much of the European elite.
