Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has advised his team-mate and reported Liverpool and Arsenal target Heung-Min Son, not to rush into a move away from the Bundesliga.

Sky Sports reports how the South Korean striker has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, following a series of impressive performances in Germany.

The 20-year-old is currently Hamburg's top goalscorer with six goals in 13 appearances in all competitions this season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be monitoring Son's progress with a view to bringing him to the Emirates Stadium, but could face competition for his signature from Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers is known to be in the market for attacking reinforcements in January, with Luis Suarez as the Reds' only fit first-team striker at Anfield at the moment.

Son is under contract at Hamburg until 2014, but that is unlikely to deter either Liverpool or Arsenal from making an offer for the Asian star, even after Van der Vaart's recommendations to stay put.

"I can just say that he needs to play on for this club," the former Tottenham ace told Sport-BILD. "Of course it is flattering to have a club like Liverpool enquiring.

"But over here he has the faith, over here he is playing regular first-team matches. Moving on would be way too early."
