Liverpool FC and Manchester United are both interested in a deal to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min, according to a report in England.

Media outlet Sport1, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the South Korea international is attracting interest from a number of top Premier League clubs this summer.

The same article states that Liverpool FC and Manchester United are both interested in a deal to sign the 25-year-old forward from their title rivals.

According to the same story, Tottenham’s bitter rivals Arsenal are also monitoring the World Cup star with a view to a potential move.

Son is open to a move from Tottenham this summer despite his impressive performances throughout the 2017-18 campaign in the Champions League and the Premier League.

However, Sport1 go on to suggest that Spurs could demand a transfer fee in the region of €70m (£62m) for the former Bayer Leverkusen striker.

Son, who has two years left to run on his current deal, was thought to be in negotiations with Spurs over putting pen to paper on a new contract that would see his current wage of £60,000 a week increased.

Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last season ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC.
