Report: Liverpool eye summer deal for £15 million-rated playmaker Son Heung-Min

Bayer Leverkusen’s Son Heung-Min has reportedly attracted the attentions of Liverpool.

According to a report in The Sun, Liverpool have turned their attentions to Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Son Heung-Min following his impressive performances of late.

The South Korean international has been linked with the Premier League before as Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were accredited with interest last December, as per the Daily Star.

Commonly known as Son, the 22-year-old has started 25 Bundesliga matches for Leverkusen this season, scoring 11 goals and adding a further two assists.

His impressive goal-scoring run from midfield hasn’t gone unnoticed as fresh reports claim that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has put him on the Merseysiders’ summer wish-list.

“Brendan Rodgers has put brilliant South Korean Son Heung-Min on his hit list ahead of a summer revolution. The Liverpool boss has his spies on the trail of Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking midfielder, who has been a hit since signing from Hamburg,” The Sun claims.

Would Son Heung-Min be a good signing for Liverpool?

The Reds need to make a number of changes this summer as they seek to bounce back from this year’s disappointment and at least claim a top for spot next season.

The defence is a priority for Rodgers, but so are his attacking options with Steven Gerrard set to leave and the futures of Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli unknown.

The report goes on to say that the Merseysiders would have to part with around £15 million to sign Son, and given his current age and potential it certainly seems to represent a fair price.

He can be described as a central playmaker able to come off wide areas, and his inclusion at Anfield would take some of the pressure off Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho.
