You know silly season is upon us when links start surfacing that almost everybody knows have zero chance of materialising.
That is exactly what happened when former Liverpool striker John Aldridge suggested that Liverpool should try and sign Tottenham duo Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min.
In an article that he penned for the Irish Independent, the 60-year-old wrote that both players would be a perfect fit for Liverpool’s system although he admitted that Tottenham are unlikely to let Son go.
Both Moura and Son have had terrific seasons for Spurs, netting 15 and 20 goals respectively for the Lilywhites and played an important role as they progressed to the final of the Champions League.
Some Liverpool fans got extremely excited at Aldridge’s suggestion that the Reds should try and tempt these two start from the Champions League runners up. The idea of signing Son, in particular, was very popular with some Liverpool fans on social media.

Spurs Web Opinion
It is clear that any bid for Son Heung-Min or Lucas Moura will likely be rebuffed by Daniel Levy this summer as it is vital that the club strengthen their squad in order to convince Pochettino that Spurs can compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City. With both players seemingly loving life at Tottenham, this suggestion by Aldridge is clearly a non-starter.
