Jonathan Woodgate has claimed that Liverpool would be all over Son Heung-min if the South Korean became available.

Son has improved as a player every season since swapping Bayer Leverkusen for Tottenham in the summer of 2015.

While Harry Kane has struggled for form so far this season, the South Korean has continued to dazzle, having scored five goals and provided two assists in all competitions.

Spurs fans will be hoping that Son and Kane can hit a similar vein of form as they did for the majority of last season following Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club.

Son penned a new four-year deal with Tottenham over the summer but Woodgate believes the 29-year-old would be on Jurgen Klopp’s radar if he became available.

The former Spurs defender labelled Son and Kane as ‘world-class’ and tipped Antonio Conte to be successful at the North London club if he is backed in the transfer market.

Woodgate told Ladbrokes (as relayed by The Daily Star): “To bring someone in of Antonio Conte’s quality is a massive coup for that football club, and I really believe he’ll do well there.

“Hopefully he’ll get given some money to spend because he’s got two world-class players in Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

“I just want to see them strengthen elsewhere. Those two get into most Premier League teams.

“Son has recently signed a long-term contract at the club, but if for whatever reason he became available, I’d imagine Liverpool would be all over him.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Son is not going anywhere given that he only signed a contract this summer. The South Korean also does not seem like the sort of character who would push for a move like Kane did over the summer. So, I would expect the forward to stick around at Spurs well into his thirties.
