Liverpool chase 20-year-old Bundesliga forward

Liverpool are reportedly monitoring the situation of Hamburg forward Son Heung-Min as Brendan Rodgers makes plans to reinforce his goalscoring department in the January transfer window.

Son has scored four goals in seven Bundesliga appearances for Thorsten Fink's side this season and continues to grow in importance at the Imtech Arena.

The 20-year-old South Korean's recent purple patch appears to have led to Liverpool taking notice of his talents, and a move could now reportedly be made to bring Son to Anfield in January.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are keen on the versatile forward - who can operate either through the centre or on the flank - as Rodgers strives desperately to recruit more firepower alongside Luis Suarez.

Liverpool signed Fabio Borini for £10 million from Roma during the summer transfer window, but the Italian has failed to find the net in the Premier League for the Anfield club.

Suarez has five league goals for Liverpool this season but, as highlighted during the weekend draw with Stoke, needs more support - with the Reds particularly light up to given the departures of Dirk Kuyt and Andy Carroll in the summer.

Along with Son, Liverpool have also been linked with January transfer moves for Wilfried Zaha of Crystal Palace, and also more unrealistic targets Darren Bent and Alexis Sanchez.

Sanchez is reportedly out of favour under Tito Vilanova at the Camp Nou and Liverpool could swoop to offer him a way out of Barcelona.
