Liverpool were ready to bid for Tottenham star Heung-min Son this summer, it has been revealed.
Football.London says with Liverpool anticipating the exit of either Mane or Mohamed Salah, they were preparing a big-money move for the South Korean star.
However, Liverpool were hoping that Tottenham would miss out on the Champions League to strengthen their chances, but Arsenal’s late collapse has ruined their plans.
Klopp has been a fan of Son for a long time, and the South Korean was starting to make a name for himself in the Bundesliga while the current Liverpool boss was in charge of Borussia Dortmund. Klopp and Son have been seen chatting on various occasions when Liverpool have played Tottenham, and potential moves may have even been discussed.
And Liverpool were reportedly readying a huge bid for Son this summer, but due to Tottenham’s rise under Conte, and Arsenal’s failure to keep them out of the top four, their plans have been ruined. That’s not to say that they would have been successful, as Son as seen as one of their most valuable players, alongside Harry Kane.
Tottenham even signed Son to a new four-year deal earlier this season, meaning that they may have demanded a Premier League record fee to let him go. But it seems that Liverpool have been stopped from even testing the waters due to Arsenal‘s late collapse.
