Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen has admitted the Bundesliga side may have to sell their Korean forward Son Heung-Min this summer as discussions over a new contract take longer than expected.
The 20-year-old South Korean international has made good strides this season for manager Thorsten Fink. Indeed, in his 32 appearances for the club, he has scored 11 goals.
And it seems the youngster’s vast potential has attracted a long list of suitors from the Premier League, as Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be interested in signing him.
True enough, his agent Thies Bliemeister has publicly confirmed that the English clubs, specifically Manchester United and Chelsea, "among others", have lined up bids for the South Korean starlet.
With Son’s contract set to expire in 2014, Arnesen is desperate to sign the player into a new deal. But things are not going according to plan, it seems.
"If we cannot extend Son’s deal, we have to sell him", Arnesen was quoted as saying by the Hamburger Morgenpost.
