Liverpool Look To Hamburg Youngster To Solve Striker Problems

Liverpool have earmarked Hamburg's South Korean striker Son Heung-Min to beef up their attacking options which are incredibly limited.

The 20 year old has been in great form for the German side and although he is currently playing as a striker, his pace and mobility mean he can also play on either wing. As good as his variety of positions are it may leave Liverpool fans worried that this is not the goalscoring answer that they are currently crying out for.

Boss, Brendan Rodger's has already brought in Fabio Borini in the summer for £10 million but he is yet to open his account in the Premier League and after the loan sale of Andy Carroll to West Ham its has left the Reds with insufficient fire power to get there season really started.

However Hamburg are wanting to extended the strikers contract due to his great start to the season as football director Frank Arnesen told ESPN, "We absolutely want to extend his contract."

Son arrived at Hamburg's youth academy as part of an exchange program in 2008 and has played in 47 league matches for the club, scoring 12 times.
