Arsenal & Liverpool lose out in Son chase

Football News

Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of South Korean winger Heung-Min Son.

The Premier League trio had originally been given a boost by reports that the 20-year-old had rejected a new contract at Hamburg, but it appears as though any joy was short lived.

According to German publication Kicker, Son is ready to snub Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool in favour of a transfer to rival Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had reportedly made Son one of his possible options in a summer transfer spending spree.

Tottenham were reportedly leading the race of Premier League clubs to secure the South Korea international’s signature as Andre Villas-Boas looks to revamp his squad at White Hart lane for another tilt at Champions League football.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, has been busy upgrading his attacking personnel, signing Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan in January, while the signing of Iago Apsas from Celta Vigo is close to being completed.

Son was reportedly being watched by Anfield scouts but it now appears they will be forced to look elsewhere.

Bayer Leverkusen have already secured an automatic Champions League qualification spot and they are expected to land a windfall from the sale of Andre Schürrle to Chelsea.

The Schürrle deal will provide more than enough cash for Sami Hyypiä’s side to pay the reported £10million asking fee for the flying winger.
