According to 90min, Liverpool are sniffing around Heung-min Son’s situation at Tottenham as he negotiates a new contract.

What’s the story?

Well, the 91-cap South Korea international is yet to sign a new deal with Spurs.

Son’s current terms, which see him earn £140,000-a-week, expire in June 2023 (Transfermarkt).

Fabio Paratici is said to have made tying the 29-year-old down to fresh terms an immediate priority, as Liverpool circle.

90min believe Jürgen Klopp’s side – and also Manchester City – are huge admirers of the Tottenham No.7.

As a result, Tottenham are said to be growing slightly concerned about Son’s future.

However, Paratici’s initial chats with the £22m man have gone well.

One man who’s a huge fan of Son is Gary Lineker.

The ex-Tottenham striker and BBC Match of the Day host once described the direct Spurs forward as a player who’s electric on the field, and delightful off it.

You can see Lineker’s tweet in full below.

Now, if Tottenham did end up losing Son to either Liverpool or Manchester City, it would be absolutely disastrous.

In that respect, he certainly won’t want to handle the prospect of losing Son as well – both men are by far and away Tottenham’s best players.

The former Bayer Leverkusen attacker has netted 107 goals in 280 games for the north Londoners.

If you put him alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, or Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez, we feel he’d become even more prolific.
