John Aldridge has suggested in The Irish Independent that Tottenham Hotspur duo Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min would be good signings for Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Former Liverpool striker Aldridge has praised Brazil international winger Moura and South Korea international star Son, who can operate as a winger or as a forward.

The former Republic of Ireland striker believes that Moura could slot into the Tottenham front-three and so could his teammate Son.

Aldridge wrote in The Irish Independent: “Moura is a tricky forward who could slot into the team if any of the front three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane] were out and the same could be said of his team-mate Son Heung-min, although I would be surprised if Spurs allowed the South Korean to leave after his outstanding season.”

Unlikely moves

Moura and Son are two of the best attacking players in the Premier League and are key figure in the current Tottenham team.

Although the Brazilian and the South Korean would be good signings for Liverpool and would fit in Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s side, it is very unlikely that Tottenham will even listen to any offers for the duo.

Stats

Moura scored 10 goals in 25 Premier League starts and five goals in eight Champions League stats for Tottenham this past season, according to WhoScored.

Son scored 12 goals and provided six assists in 23 Premier League starts and scored four goals and provided one assist in 11 Champions League starts this past campaign, according to WhoScored.
