What Jurgen Klopp ‘told’ Tottenham’s Son Heung-min with Liverpool transfer on the cards

 According to reports, Liverpool is reportedly monitoring Son Heung- min’s status  at Tottenham in preparation for a possible surprise transfer.

And if he does decide to move to Anfield, Jurgen Klopp could be able to make it happen because of their brief talk after their meeting last season.

In a 1-1 draw between the sides in May at Anfield, Luis Diaz’s late second-half goal tied the score after Son had opened the scoring with a brilliant counterattack.

Fans feel Klopp seized the opportunity to set the groundwork for a potential transfer when he grabbed Son after the game for a brief discussion. Klopp was spotted hugging Son after the game.

Supporters believe Klopp stated “Here is special!” when he was captured on camera on the field referring to the unique atmosphere inside their iconic stadium, Anfield.

Some feel it was the German’s way of launching the charm offensive to bring Son to Merseyside after Son posted his highest goalscoring season to date in 2021-22, tying Mohamed Salah’s 23-goal output from the previous season. 

Klopp is rumored to be a fervent admirer of the South Korean forward’s abilities, and he has made no secret of his admiration for him.

Since his £23 million signing from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015, when Mauricio Pochettino was in charge, Son has become a club icon.

Since then, he has scored 136 goals in 344 appearances for the club and established a record-breaking relationship with Harry Kane, combining for almost 50 goal assists.

Son, who turned 30 in July, is already contemplating the next phase of his career, according to the German publication Sport 1.

It is said that the South Korean is willing to quit the club after seven years in order to win trophies abroad, although he may be difficult to entice away.

Not only is Spurs chairman Daniel Levy a notoriously difficult negotiator, but Son’s contract does not expire until 2025, giving him little influence.

Given his tight relationship with the fanbase, it is doubtful that he would announce his wish to depart publicly, like Kane did.

According to the source, European giants PSG and Real Madrid, in addition to Liverpool, are interested in signing Son, and their financial resources may give them a little edge over the Premier League club.

But Klopp, having lost Diaz to injury and Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich last summer, may be able to persuade the Spurs star that trophy is attainable at Liverpool under his guidance, having won the Premier League, Champions League, and FA Cup during his tenure at the club.
