Heung-Min Son could be an ideal signing for Liverpool

In light of Manchester United signing talented winger Memphis Depay, Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal described his new charge as "a goal-scoring winger". The former Netherlands manager then went on to say "there aren't so many of them in the world".

Well hold on a minute Louis, you may have missed one of the most underrated players in world football. Heung-Min Son may not be a name you've ever heard of, and to be honest, I'm not surprised.

Son has spent the majority of his professional career in the Bundesliga. Firstly with Hamburg, and now with Bayer Leverkusen, 22-year-old Son is one of the most deadly forwards in Germany's top flight.

South Korea seem to always produce good players, but they miss that star quality when they most need it. Things appear to be changing however, with the emerging talent of Son. 

Naturally a left-winger, Son's speciality is cutting inside his man and unleashing shots that keepers can't save. He is a very quick player, hard worker and has great composure in-front of goal.

One of Son's most desirable traits is his ability on both feet. Similar to Arsenal's Santi Cazorla, Son is equally deadly with his left and right pegs.

For sides that missed out on Depay, Son would be a fantastic alternative. The South Korean is often called upon to lead the line for his country, and I think he could do that just as well at club level. The Bayer Leverkusen forward has also found himself with the nickname 'Sonaldo'.

Liverpool are reportedly interested in the £15 million-rated South Korean, who's bagged 11 Bundesliga goals this season.

I think he'd be a fantastic acquisition for Brendan Rodgers, and could help push them back into Champions League places next season. Son's style of play certainly fits a club like Arsenal also, who are also interested in bolstering their front-line in the summer.
