Liverpool are currently in their strongest position in modern history. The Reds are European champions, registering record profits and are arguably the most fearsome team in Europe to face at the minute. With Jürgen Klopp’s side looking so dominant, it is time we learn from Manchester United’s policy when they were at the peak of their powers. During the height of United’s success, Sir Alex Ferguson made a habit of signing star players from Premier League rivals, Robin van Persie the most famous example. With this in mind, Liverpool should sign Son Heung-min from Tottenham Hotspur.
Fergie’s policy at United had a two fold benefit for the Red Devils. He would strengthen his side and weaken his rivals in the process. Robin van Persie’s arrival at Man United was a gut punch for Arsenal and their fans, he went on to become one of United’s greatest strikers of the modern era.
Should Liverpool sign Son Heung-min, they would be getting a player that would fit seamlessly into the Reds system whilst taking out a key cog of the Spurs machine. Son has established himself as potentially the greatest Asian player of all time. His lightning pace and admirable work rate have made him a nightmare for defences across Europe. Liverpool are desperate for reinforcements in attack, going after a player with proven Premier League credentials would be a wise move.
Let’s face it, Liverpool have the money at the moment. The last thing the Reds want to do whilst on the precipice of dynasty is become Arsenal. Ultimately, Arsene Wenger’s lack of spending was his downfall at the Emirates and Fergie’s ruthlessness was his power. We should follow the example of the latter and Liverpool should sign Son Heung-min.
